    Default I agree.
    Go only knows why Apple hasn't implemented this, it's so much easier to type on the landscape keyboard.

    I wonder if it's worth all requsting it on the iPhone feature/enhancement request page of the apple site?

    Can I link it here? Is any one interested in putting requests in to apple about it?

    This has been brought up before and from what i read previously, it would be EXTREMELY difficult for a number of reasons i don't even know how to explain.

    However, as much as i like the landscape mode for typing, it takes up so much of the screen it makes it difficult to see WHAT you are typing and to be honest, i can type pretty fast the normal way.

    Default Hmm
    I don't see any problem with landscape, it can't possibly have negative effects, they could have it so that you get about 4 lines of your text (it's an SMS after all, you don't need that much on screen) and it would aid in typing a lot, fair enough I can also type pretty fast on the small keyboard but the larger one would be better and it makes no sense to force the use of the smaller one.

    Again, I agree, it would be extremely difficult to implement by the community but I see no reason why Apple can't implement it themselves. It works just fine in the web browser already.

    what about old school typing using the number pads instead of a keyboard? that would be a cool add on...
