Default Anyway to have SureType in portrait, but disabled in landscape view?

Please Login to Remove!

I need sure type and suggestions in portrait, but not so much in landscape. I think the suggestions it tries to bring up is slowing down the typing process too in landscape mode. It would be great to be able to turn off and test.

Thanks

Do you mean the spellcheck box that comes up? That also annoys me but I haven't been able to find a way to turn it off. However, I discovered last night that if sometimes if you tap in the box you're typing in away from the suggestion, it can disappear. This does not always work for me, though.

ya, I guess that's what I mean. Ya, suretype is the name for the double letters on a single key app (which works SO much better than I expected...i'm faster one handed on this phone than the 8830)

Thanks Koki....but I guess I'd want that in Suretype/portrait mode and not in landscape right? Anyway to do that for one mode vs the other?
