Do you text with one or two hands mostly, and how often on landscape?

    Landscape is easier for me. But I always have the rotation lock on so I never use it. I normal use two hands but Just noticed one hand is easier/quicker than I thought

    Never.

    The moment I got my hands on that 4s, one of the first things i did was turn off auto-rotate.

    I used to use one hand, in portrait mode, to tx message Nicki.
    Now I use one hand in portrait mode to hold the home button for 2 secs, then tell Siri, "Message Nicki" :)

    I text with two thumbs. Much easier than holding it with one hand and typing with the index finger of the other hand (what my mom does :p).
    Very rarely on landscape. Incidentally, I just bought SBRotator 5 and it was really really buggy. Messed up my SB and how I had the icons setup using springtomize.

    I do both, depends on how long the conversation will be. Landscape for longer ones, portrait for shorter ones. I would have to say I prob go portrait more than landscape.

    I text portrait. I use landscape when I've got ALOT to say. 30% of the time Landscape.

    I use 1 hand in portrait, somehow I type the fastest that way, but that is the exact opposite on my iPad.

    I text in portrait about 99% of the time and I text with both hands, unless I'm carrying something in my other hand. i.e. a drink.

    I never type text in landscape. In fact, before I saw this thread, I forgot that you could.

    I never type with one hand unless my other hand is holding something else. Most of the time I type with two thumbs, but for really short texts I'll use an index finger.

    As small as the 3.5 inch screen is, I hate typing in landscape. My thumbs seem to always miss the space bar.

    Auto rotate turned off, portrait for everything!

    80-90% landscape.

    Portrait when it's only 1-2 word responses.

    But when I email, if I don't use Dragon Dictation, I type with one hand, usually in landscape.

    I prefer portrait, usually with two thumbs. Unless I have something in my other (left) hand.

    But I always have potrait orientation locked for everything :)

    Usually Portrait unless I have a lot to say. Sometimes I use one hand, especially if my other is holding something. The rest of the time I use two. Plus with the advent of Zephyr, I have been toggling rotate lock like a fiend.

    This thread is almost as riviting as the ever important "Do you talk on your iphone using your left or right hand?".
