Texting on the Thunderbolt. My review!
I have had this phone for almost 2 weeks now and to be honest the keyboard needs work. I dont know if everyone else has this problem when i txt. The problem being i tend to text kinda fast and the best way to explain it is when im about to finish a word or something and im about on the last letter,and right before pushing the letter that im pushing gets twisted on the screen.Its really annoying,lets say im spelling "fighting" and ill get fightign. All the time i get this,only when im slow texting is when words come out fine,im pretty sure im hitting the buttons right but i keep getting this problem. Its hard to explain,like the phone cant keep up or something.
Another problem is like it keeps saying i have a message unread and the icon shows up but theres no message. If i restarted the phone it would work but not anymore,i have to go into running apps and clear cache and clear data and force stop.
I dont think this phone was gonna be like this,the only hope i have is when this phone gets 2.3 and the fixs included better battery life,something with texting and messages and alot more.
Really considering on taking it back and getting iphone,i have had other problems like the phone freeze on a screen,but thats was because of the ATK app but i got rid of it and since after,phone has done better but still has hickups here and there.

Did anyone have problems with entering (and dialing) phone numbers with embedded waits and pauses once they've installed a different keyboard? I used smart keyboard pro on my droid and droid x. When I installed and activated it on my thunderbolt, I wasn't able to enter waistband pauses that the thunderbolt would correctly dial.
The stock thunderbolt keyboard enters a "w" for a wit and a "p" for a pause. Other keyboards (I also have swift keyboard) enter a semicolon and comma for waits and pauses. I always thought the standard symbols WERE the semicolon and comma. Anyway with a semicolon embedded in a phone number for a wait and smart keyboard pro installed, the phone prepends a 011 when calling and ignores the embedded semicolon.

yeah but if you type and it comes up "fightign" the auto correct would fix it for you. unless you added "fightgn' to your user added words.
and the above posts are all very true. 2.3 pad is on the market as are tons of other keyboards, some that are even like the iphone.
honestly after 2 weeks of using the bolt I tried to use my ipod touch and it has become very hard for me to use now and iv had it for almost 2 years. Tbolt <3

I thought SwiftKey was the best thing ever when I first started using it. Unfortunately, as I used it, and it learned my typing habits more and more, the actual input response started to slow down. So, I went back to Gingerbread Keyboard.
