    Another quick dumb question

    There is something that has bugged me ever since I got my Omnia. When I started a text message on my Q I would just have to enter the first few letters of the contact and it would allow me to pick from a list of contacts that contained those letters. Now, on my Omnia I have to either use the "add recipient" option or start typing the name and hit "check names" Is there anyway to set it up so the "check names" part is done automatically? I have not been able to find anything in the settings for this.

    The regular old updated Verizon one. I'm not sure if I am ready to take on flashing yet.

    I'll give it a shot. I am just using the stock keyboard. I tried a couple others, but kept coming back.

    You have got to try the swype keyboard. I've tried several keyboards since I got my Omnia in Dec 08 and I've hated them all until swype. It's one of the top 3 upgrades to the phone since I got it.

    Changing those settings did not work.

    Also, I have been wanting to try Swype. Is it free? Where can I download it from? I have been searching, but for the life of me can not find a place to download the cab.

    I'm sorry to keep beating this horse, but am I missing something there? I tried both of those cabs and neither one work. The WVGA shows up huge on the screen which makes sense. I tried the other one and it gives me an error every time I try to use it. I tried searching for a WQVGA cab, but all I seem to find are links that go to other links, and never a real file.

    Thank you for sending those files over. I was not able to use the first one, because I got an error saying "Open EnglishUS error" or something like that. But, I got the second one to work and so far I love it. I'll post more when I have a chance to play with it more.

    I thought I posted this before, but I guess not. I am using the black one without the trace line.

    glad i could help. their should be a few threads here of some great programs to use on this phone. also their are some hacks that are simple to do and make a big diff. my fav is one that increases the viewing area of the text input section of a text msg. all you have to do is change a number to 90.
    have fun with it
