    Unfortunately you must have a computer to unlock and the most difficult and frustrating part is updating the drivers.

    You may want to make adjustments in the keyboard settings (disable popup keys, contact search), or look at an alternate keyboard from the market. Many of those lag as well, especially if its a keyboard that installs with all the options on by default.

    What software is your device running? Make sure its the latest, 4.0.2. That's about all that can make rotation better.

    A tip I read that helped me with the drivers was to download a free program for windows PDAnet and install it per it's instructions, it will install the correct drivers, and then you should be ok, afterward you can un-install PDAnet and the drivers will remain for future needs.

    If you get PC access and decide to go the root route, there is at least 1 ROM w/ grealy improved rotational speed. I can't speak for others but Android Open Kang Project lets you set the amount of delay. On the quickest setting it is much faster than stock. I haven't had any keyboard lag on it either.
