    Most people seem to be of the opinion that the landscape feature used in texting would make the keyboard take up too much of the screen to be usuable. I don't see how this would be any different than say entering a reply in a box while surfing a forum in Safari from your phone. I would like to see it.

    I forgot to add...it is not available right now, but one day it will be.

    That's what I thought too...until I used Mobile Chat on fw 1.1.4. Their landscape setup was perfect, because it allowed the user to see all of the previous text, everything that he/she was typing, AND gave the convenience of the full sized keyboard. I wish those same developers just came out with a SMS replacement.

    I agree. So you can only see one line or two? If people are willing to accept that (and it sounds like most would) then bring it.
