When ever i type in landscape, the on screen keyboard is really laggy. The portrait keyboard is fine. I use handcent sms and i've tried to turn off sound and vibration still no luck. I've tried to use the default messaging app and its the same. Any solutions?

Sprint Htc Hero - Can Stock Ringtones Be Removed

I'm using darchdroid v2. 8 and it comes preloaded with a crap load of ringtones that i will never ever use. Is it ok for me to go ahead and delete these? I know these are in /system/media/audio/ringtones but i'm not sure if it is ok to delete them? I tried to delete the ringtones from the rom before i flashed it but when flashing, it gave me an error that ringtones couldn't be found. I don't want to try and delete them and find out later that my phone can't reboot. Just want to ask before i even attempt to.

Sprint Htc Hero - Go Back To Stock Radio Withoug Using Ruu?

Alright, so i have seen many users ask, and i understand that the ruu (either 1. 26 or 1. 56) will allow you to set the radio back to stock. What i want to know is, is there any way to reset the radio without having a chance of it bricking from the ruu reset. I have heard several people had their phone brick after attempting to use the ruu, and i don't want to risk it. Not that it is a problem if i do, i could just go into the sprint store and say, hey, it doesn't boot anymore. I have tried everything, what is wrong. But, i would rather play it safe and find an alternative method of trying to reset the radio.

Does anyone have some suggestions, or am i pretty much left and stuck with using the ruu if i need to go back?

Sprint Htc Hero - Google Places Or Stock Browser Causing 100% Awake

I have been posting semi steadily about my 100% awake time. I've reset the phone twice now. The first time, my 8% awake time lasted one night before reverting to 100%. This most recent time, it lasted about 3 days around 8%. I've been trying to pay close attention to what apps i use to see if any of them are causing the 100% awake time, and as far as i can tell, the only difference last night (when my phone went back to 100% awake), and before (when it hovered between 8-12%) was extended use of the browser and google places. I had used both before in short uses (maybe 4-5 minutes at a time) and i was still running normal awake time, but last night i used them each for about 20-30 minutes. Since then, i'm at 100%.

Also, despite the upgrade and the hard resets, i found that i had to use the handcent workaround, but i don't see that as related here.

Landscape Keyboard Lag

So this has been the biggest issue for me so far with my android device, and it has been a problem in every rom that i have tried. I am a pretty fast typer, but not too crazy and it doesn't matter where i am typing or what application i am in, but there is a significant lag in the landscape keyboard all the time. The portrait works fantastic with no problems. I have sound and vibration turned off.

Any suggestions? (Btw, i have a mt3g. . And again. This has happened on every rom that i have tried and i have tried most of the latest roms that have been posted over the last 3 weeks or so)

Sprint Htc - Can't Get Service On Hero / Fix It Ithout Resetting My Phone

This is the 3rd time this has happed to me the 1st time sprint gave me a new phone and the 2nd time i had to factory reset my new phone.

When i turned my phone on i don't have service and i get a bunch of pop ups saying that different applications stopped and are force closed. They include "com.google. Process. Gapps", "com.android. Phone", "com.coremobility. App. Vnote" "com. Htc. Launcher" among others.

When i try and turn on the mobile it crashes. Does anyone know what is causing this? Is there anyway to fix this without resetting my phone? I've only had this hero for 3 weeks and this is the 2nd time this is happening to this phone.

I love my hero but i'm not gonna keep it if i have to reset it every 2 weeks

Sprint Htc Hero - Can't Text , E-mail Even Youtube Without Getting An Error Message / Fix It

I'm a complete newbie, please be gentle and use easy words. I just got my hero with sprint last week, and it's my first phone that does more that just make phone calls. I was excited to use it to take a video of my daughter's dance recital today, but i can't seem to get it out of my phone to share with others. Can't text or e-mail or even youtube without getting an error message that the file is too big. I've searched old threads and all over the internet but the fixes i've found seem to deal with future videos and pictures, not what you've already got. Get this video to my friends or even my mac?
