    They need an option to turn off landscape.
    I hate when landscape comes on when I'm lying in bed. UGH.

    Portrait, by the way.

    Agreed! Some use it, some do not - so it should be optional.

    Landscape's by far the best, But now I end up writing massively long texts all the time!

    Landscape is great, but I'm so used to portrait that sometimes I forget to tilt the phone and use it. :p

    Well, you are an awful car designer, how could one expect you to text the right way?


    Portrait.

    Portrait, because the landscape keyboard covers up almost the entire screen.

    +1. Also, I am horrible at using the keyboard in landscape, I'm much faster when using portrait.

    I voted landscape and only text in landscape now. When I open the app to read a text, I'll do portrait but as soon as I'm ready to reply, I rotate the phone.

    I'd like to type in landscape but it takes too long for the screen to orient itself so I end up typing in portrait most of the time.

    I do portrait, but only because I'm used to it. If I remember to do Landscape, I switch immediately.

    Landscape. I wish there was an option for orienting the entire interface in landscape.

    Me too. I'm the opposite of the previous poster; when I'm laying in bed, I wish I could lock it into landscape :D

    ETA: However, I'm obviously a dimwit because I voted portrait in the poll *hangs head in shame* :eek:

    usually portrait because it is just quicker. If it is a long message landscape.

    I always thought I'd prefer landscape but I don't!! In the landscape mode I find the keys too large and slower to type with! :)

    Normally, I do portrait purely because I forget about the landscape. If I'm writing a long text or e-mail, I usually switch it the landscape though just for comfort and speed.
