I agree. The previous settings with this modification makes it all amazing. Thanks for the update guys.

EDIT: I just realized that in order for me to access the options menu I have to remove my battery everything. Anybody else with this problem?

For the life of me I cannot CANNOT figure out how to have a default signature for my text messages. Can anyone help me with this? Also in my opinion the camera isn't that great. The colors aren't very bright and "actual" it's more of a gray/green. I tried to make some adjustments but they didn't help. Any suggestions?

Yes, its all over CrackBerry: do not reach across the KYBD while typing. I am using my left thumb for the left side and my right thumb for the right side, when using the landscape KYBD. Crackberry has a very extensive set of tips specially re-edited at

ULTIMATE Official tips/tricks ONLY - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

Some of these tips are priceless.

I have not taken the time to learn SureType. In fact, I think I hate it.

Instead of the paper trick, I took a small piece of an old plastic credit card. I cut it to the width of my battery, and about 3/4 inch tall. I placed it right on top of my battery and it seems to work great- better than the paper! Plus I like the idea of plastic instead of paper for hazard reasons.

I honestly can't decide between 100/100/6 and 500/1000/6 I really want to be able to use the "Search Sender" function just by hovering over the contact name in the message list.

What's the final verdict 500/1000/6 or 100/100/6?

This is a great thread, thanks for posting it! I was concerned I had made a bad buying decision based on how fast I can type vs. how fast the Storm reacts. No longer, thanks to the 100/100/6/fast settings!

Anyone else having issues with pressing the "a" key and the "space" key in landscape mode? They seem to require more pressure than the other keys. Could be my fat thumbs...

I like the 100/100/6 better and with a card on the battery I have noticed typing much, much better!

I changed my hover to 300. Much, much better. Thank you for the tip! 1000 is rediculous.

For anyone that is still using the paper trick (or any of the variants that involve putting something under and/or over the battery, you really should consider removing all of that stuff and trying the loosen screws method that has been posted all over. Trust me, I was one of the biggest proponents of the paper trick until I tried this... it actually works better than the paper trick, IMHO, making the screen evenly clickable all over and very responsive. If anyone needs a link, let me know and I can look it up... you should be able to find it by searching for "torx" or "T6"... although, I think the screw is actually a T7, but most people are claiming it's a T6... I bought a T6 screwdriver and it felt a little loose when I was unscrewing the screws (though it DID work just fine).

Hope this helps.
