How to text in landscape

Hello all, just wondering what do u have to do to get your screen to change to landscape mode while texting. I go from TFlo3d to text and the keyboard is so small I have it on compact qwerty and it is still to small if it could switch to landscape it would be so much better.

Switch the SIP to TouchPal and you won't have to worry about it. I just use the Send key (hold it down) to rotate the screen.

You could also look into an application like Flip IT which will use the built in G-sensor in your diamond to flip your phone into landscape automatically.

Edit: Here's the link to the download over at xda if you wanted to try it out. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=429682

Re: How to text in landscape

hey, I just tried flip it and I like it a lot. I also like TouchPal, but I wish the keyboard was bigger in landscape mode.

Anyway..thanks for this tip!

Re: How to text in landscape

I never type in landscape so it's not a problem for me. I would recommend FingerKeyboard2 for landscape.
