dont know if this is out but heres the perfect layout of a sms program which will make it fast to txt without getting ur pen out in the pub.
I wish i was good e-nuff to make it my self and get cred for it -=),
but then again im new to this, so this program probs already out and i just dont know about it if so could u please let me know what its called.

K start of with basic keybored layout at bottom of screen using the directional pad u can choose letter and (based on the MDA COMPACT) using the phone book button (bottom left of 4) as a shift for CAPS or smybols. hav t9 guess what ur trying to write press pick up button to confirm the guessed word (top left side).
middle button can b set to most used funtion i.e space bar. that leave 2 extra buttons which im sure if some1 started to make this could think of stuff for them to do.

plz dont flame if this is out just tell me what its called? ;) i could do with it

It's the "Phone Pad" option in your text entry choice.
I-jam call it the intellipad

I use the inbuilt phone pad to text and the inbuilt keyboard to email. The phone pad has T9, ABC and 123 options and is nearly as easy as using a phone keypad - considering the lack of textual feel.

You could also try the TenGo keyboard I posted about in PPC News but I'm not convinced it makes texting any easier than with the phonepad :)

I really like this idea - I have tried Intellipad for texting and have a couple of problems with it - it doesn't "feel" like a keypad, the keys are a tad too small and often not that responsive, and it's impossible to select the Intellipad text entry without resorting to the stylus.

I like the idea of selecting letters with the four-way pad - the selection area can be small and not intrude too much on the text screen. It would however, have to have some way of setting it as the default text entry method for SMS only - in fact it'd be nice to be able to set the default text entry method for each app as part of the OS!

If anyone wants intellipad, PM me. I have it installed on my a701 and it works a treat! No more steering with my knees whilst using both hands & a magnifying glass to text ;)

Welcome to the forum ;)

I installed this on my Jam and thought it was the solution to the one-handed operation problem. Sadly I couldn't manage to press-and-hold a contact picture to select a text message without initiating a call, which is the default function. The differential sensitivity was beyond me, if that makes sense.

I agree. thats why I never use the contact pic to send sms. but with this software you can easily find a contact (not pic assigned contact) and to choose if you want to make a call or to send sms to that contact. for me its the best way to send sms using only one hand. no stylus.

Phone plus looks good, its a pity it doesn't support T9 when writing text messages though.

I used to use KeyStick on my Siemens SX1 and it was by far the best non keyboard texting system I ever used.

I generally use the stylus these days on my JAMin but having Keystick would be nice. I contacted them a few months back and they did say they were considering a PPC version but did not give a timescale.

Try emailing them, they may have got a bit further.

Regards
