1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Is there any way to text using the old

    keypad method? When the phone is in vertical mode, the QWERTY pad is too small and I always hit the wrong buttons.

    Wow, I gotta say, I never thought I would see anyone asking to do this. All the keyboard options for texting was one of the big draws for me. I was way too slow on the old # pads.

    I guess I'm going to have to get used to it, but I can't text one handed with the keypad.

    Me also...If I try two thumbs in portrait I fail, but one and I can type super fast. I am also getting darn fast on landscape mode.

    To the OP...you just need to practice and you will get much much better. "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" I believe....somebody correct me if I am wrong. For those thinking I am crazy, this phrase should contain all letters of the alphabet.
