which keypad you like qwerty like we have in computer keyboards or the alphanumeric which is coming from the beginning of the cellphones. I like the qwerty 1 as i have to get online from my phone many times.It helps in entering faster with precision.For all social networking addicts QWERTY is best.

I like the QWERTY because it's faster and easier to use, but I use the alphanumeric if I only have one hand available. I got my first QWERTY phone four months ago and have been hooked ever since. I don't know if I could go back to a regular keypad.

I would have to agree with you on QWERTY, I use a BlackBerry Curve and I love it! Wouldn't change it for anything. I work in mobile development and I often need to key in stuff on a normal alphanumeric keypad, it just takes so long and so much effort! In the past, QWERTY keyboards came with huge phones that are bulky (i.e. Nokia Communicator), but that is no longer the case with newer phones such as the newer BlackBerry, Nokia N97, etc. Otherwise, go with half-QWERTY, that's 2 key presses instead of 3, but still doesn't come close.

Qwerty definitely, I am a much faster typer then a texter and the reason is I often get annoyed with the alphanumeric keys as if I make a mistake or if I don't concentrate I make mistakes and it takes longer to resolve. The advantage of qwerty is that key is individual(kinda) whereas with the alphanumeric all the letters and punctuation have to be divided into 10 digits which even with the help of auto correctors or textings help it still is slow for me.

I have a qwerty keyboard and I like that much better, as it is easier to text using it than the keyboard on the touch screen I have used the touch screen keyboard though, but it does make it a little harder to type text, but it can be done. I also think using the qwerty keyboard is much more precise than the touch screnn keyboard, I have been known to make lots of mistakes using the kebyoard on the touch screen, and it is so frustrating too. Lately, though, I haven't been texting at all, as my daughter and I have just been talking on the phone instead of texting. That is okay though, as texting does drain the battery quicker than talking. Take care, and happy mylotting.

I love the full qwerty keyboards that most cell phones now have. I know how to use both and had to get used to them, but when I got usewed to the qwerty, I couldn't walk away. For the time being I'm back to the old-style alphnemeric but I can't wait until I can aford the other.
