Re: texting sucks

yeah that's kind of an issue with the touch pro, i use vito sms-chat to circumvent the lag, although its not as bad in some roms as it is in others.

Re: texting sucks

There are .cabs out there that claim to fix it, but there have been mixed results with cabbing and using other roms.

Re: texting sucks

Yea, its pretty annoying, but now I just type away without looking at what it says and spellcheck right before I fire the text off. Mine is only about a second or two off though.

Re: texting sucks

Is this with the on screen keyboard or your pull out keyboard?

hardware keyboard. I don't think many people can type fast enough on the onscreen for it to exhibit lag as well, hahah.

I use SMS-Chat also (great program) but like you said, certain ROM's will still lag.

I finally found a combination with no lag whatever. I am now running merdin's latest 6.5 ROM & use TouchPal 3.5 in SMS-Chat. That combination responds instantly.

You'd be surprised... I do have onscreen keyboard lag. LOL Must be a girl thing. LOL

The hardware keyboard was like that for me on the first TP I got and then it died completely. It was replaced under warranty.

oo SMS-chat looks nice, but does it integrate with the TF3D?

Re: texting sucks

Someone correct me if i'm wrong but the keyboard lag has something to do with the HTC drivers on the phone, so we can't totally "fix" it. However, there are registry settings you can play with to make it a LOT better. Go to HKCU -> ControlPanel -> Keybd and play with the entries for initial delay and repeat rate. Different numbers seem to provide different results on different ROMS so get ready for some trial and error. Hope this helps!
