    How do I quickly switch to landscape view?

    What is the quickest way to change the screen to landscape on the 6600? Thanks you!

    Ok, that works and it is quick. Thank you.

    In case I don't want to use a button, is there a way to do it quick on the screen with a soft button or icon on the todat screen?

    Thank you!

    you could use a software program like spb pocket plus. I dont know if there is a free solution. Its an added menu pick to their close button.

    Use button 9. You're probably not using it now. It's the blank button 2 to the left of the space bar on the slide out keyboard.

    I use PHM PowerToys to put program icons on the bottom of the screen and PHM Keys for the actual icon that switches orientation. The programs are free. Here are the links:

    FYI, on a PPC-6600 it isnt blank. It is the sprint button.
