Default Hello and a question.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone, I'm Neil, I just joined the forum.

Is there any way to prevent accidental trackball scrolling when typing messages? I often look up at the screen when typing and notice that I've rolled the selection to characters before the one I need to be on--mixing up the words and causing frustration.

Other than practicing my technique, is there some way to help prevent this?

Thanks.

Also, I'm using .168 and it works wonderfully.

Keep practicing. You will adjust.

Unless you can make your fingers smaller you're going to have to practice. It won't take too long before you'll be typing without looking at the keys

Yeah I know Oh well.

I'm spoiled though. I was a long time Sidekick user. Nothing beats that key board for typing.
