Flipping words from keyboard

Has anyone learned a trick for flipping the words off the keyboard?


I just can't seem to get the hang of it. It worked a little better with key pop-up off, but mostly I just get the next letter and have only been able to make it work from the top row.


My fingers aren't huge but definately bigger than the 90 lb thing that sold it to me and demonstrated it at the store.


The space bar seems really intuitive though and good at predicting.

Re: Flipping words from keyboard

I was having trouble flicking the words as well until I started using my pointer finger to do the flicking. You might also want to touch the letter below the suggested word rather than the word itself before flicking upward.

I hope that helps you. Smiley Happy

I myself never got the hang of flipping the words to the text. I have to also first read the the words to know what I want to flip. Then it takes me a number of tried to get it right. I got so frustrated that I don't use the word flipe. What I did find is I had near zero problem to adabt to the Z10 touch keyboard. After a few days, I got very used to it.  After about a week, I  am as fast on it, or maybe faster than on my 9900.


The other day, I saw someone sending an email with a Z10. I noticed he was doing a lot of word flipping. I asked him how he got the hang of doing that. He told me, "With lots and lots of practice!".  He also mentioned he does a lot of emails with the phone and he is fast with it. The phone also learns the word choices to put up.

Flip the word up by touching the letter below it and flicking up through the word. Even below the word to either side works. Smiley Happy
