Personally for me, I do not like the new smart phones with either qwerty keypads that pull out from the phone for you to use, or the ones like on the apple iphone where you have an onscreen touch qwerty... I always use my mobile phone for mainly texting, and I find that the old style of phone, with the number pad is so much easier for me, as I can text so much quicker... with the on screen touch screen one, it takes me ages as I make so many spelling mistakes, and the other type that pull out and act like a normal keyboard just takes to long... so even though I have a T-Mobile G! and an iphone 3gs I still use my old nokia as my mobile, it makes my life so much easier lol...

Because of the trends i guess. Today qwerty keypad phone especially blackberry is booming in my place. For me that phones is not as flexible as its look because i'm ever have and then i bring to my brother. I'm still using my old nokia since three years ago, i'm still satisfied for texting, internet, chatting, etc.

I feel that since there are a lot of people that text, having a qwerty keyboard just seems to make it easier. The last phone I had a qwerty keyboard, as I used it for texting my daughter, but since we don't text each other anymore, I don't need a phone with a qwerty keyboard, however the phone I have is a touch screen keyboard, and I only use it when I want to post to mylot from it, as it is comes in very handy. I really do like the qwerty keyboard, but they aren't for everyone. I am happy with the phone I have now, so i will never buy another phone at least for awhile. Take care, and happy mylotting.
