Hey there! Been lurking around here a bit lately and thought some of you guys might be able to help me out.

I'm thinking about buying a 6121, because my trusty old 6230 is starting to act its age, and it seems to be a well spec'd little phone. I got to have a play with one for the first time tonight, and discovered that, as far as I can tell, the only way to clear text from the screen when writing a text message is to hold the 'clear' button and wait for the cursor to scroll back. 

Now this is a petty complaint, I know, but it's something that I know will bug the hell out of me. So I was wondering if there's an option I missed, or if I'll have to just suck it up.

Oh, and while I'm here, how does one manage to text with such a miniature keypad?! Your general opinions on the phone would be cool too, if I haven't already asked for too much Tongue out

Yep, that the only way to clear.. Its faster if you press the button instead of holding it down.

I've been using one for a while now and don't have a problem with the size of the keypad, but it is something others have mentioned so I'm sure its fairly subjective..

I wouldn't recommend it to someone with large fingers.

Damn, was hoping that wouldn't be the case.

I think I need to get one out of the box so I can play around with it without the massive security tag that vodafone have got on the back of them, and see if the keypad is a problem. Cheers for the reply!
