Red face Few Storm 2 9550 questions....

Please Login to Remove!

Still trying to type on this device coming from a Bold

1. What are the absolute best settings for the keyboard to be successful at this thing? Also, do most use "full keyboard" or Suretap?

2. Which if any Free News readers work in full screen mode on the Storm?

3. The stock screen protectors (verizon) shows so many fingerprints and "clouds" the display. Can someone tell me which protector would provide crystal clear film and less visible finger prints? Also perhaps a full film glove?

4. With alerts how do I check set sms to vibrate only and not tone?

Thanks in advance.

1. a) At Options > Screen/Keyboard, I use:
Tap - 450
Hover - 800
Swipe - 5

And, normally when possible, landscape full keyboard. Suretype in portrait.

2. Viigo

3. No screen protector. Naked. I've been a STRONG proponent of them for ALL devices, until the Storm. I've never gotten my 9530 scratched in a year of use. The screen is practically scratchproof.

4. Sounds > Scroll down to Set Ringtone/Alerts > Messages > SMS >
Volume - Silent
Vibrate - On or Custom

Wow awesome info. Thanks very much!
No screen rubber ? Are you sure? What about finger oil marks on screen ?

Yea, I only see the finger prints/oil marks when the screen is black. I wipe it on my shirt or pants often

I'll be curious if you or someone finds a good protector that doesn't lessen the screen sensitivity any. It probably is a good idea, but I haven't needed one. I holster the device on my hip, or on my desk or truck's dash/center cupholder otherwise, no where it would get scratched.

SureType, RIM's condensed keyboard mode on Pearl device and the Storm in portrait fashion.

I think I will try the Zagg Full Skin Film - I hate those darn finger prints all over the device - hopefully this skin will minimize prints.
