    Got My Evo Through Pre-Order

    I pre-ordered my phone from Radio Shack and they applied the rebates instantly. Gotta love that!
    I am trying to get used to using the qwerty touch screen-my blackberry was so easy to type on. I have turned the auto text off, I have turned it on-when I try to type the letter a, I hit the cap key, which is just below the a. I am having better luck with the voice to text. When I hit the space bar, I inadvertently hit the back button and before I know it I am typing a word within the previous word. I love a touch screen but this keyboard is horrible. When my brother went from his blackberry to an IPhone, I laughed because every other word was misspelled-I am not laughing anymore. If anyone has any tricks please let me know-I love all of the things the EVO does but typing is such a huge part of my phone usage.
    I am seriously considering going back to my blackberry if I can't figure out a way to have a better typing experience.
    Thank you

    From Home, go to Menu -> Settings -> Language & Keyboard -> Touch Input -> Text Input -> Calibration Tool

    This will calibrate your phone to your typing style.

    There is also a setting to reset it to factory defaults, if you should happen to make it worse.

    The predictive typing feature can be a huge help, but it can also be a huge pain in the ass. Once you get used to using it, you can just type half the word then hit the button for the word you want and keep going.
