    I'm sure it'll get better as I use it, but I'm missing those physical keys whenever I make an error? Please tell me I'll get better people, and that somebody else is doing just as horribly.

    Update: I forgot to mention I am using swype, just not very well.

    Try the Swype keyboard instead. It also takes some getting used to as well, but once you do you'll glide through messages. Here's their website for further info:

    I was kinda meh with Swype at first, but decided to keep on chugging with it. After a week I can zip right along. Unfortunately, I have the recent free download on my Droid and it doesn't have the Google Voice to Text button (yet, I hope it's coming at some point). That's the perfect combo in my estimation. I love talk to text, but there are sometimes when you don't want to be holding your end of a message out loud. ;)

    This is good for most regular words... but sucks for passwords, or complex words.

    Hint: Long hold a text box, and you'll have an "input option". Tap that and select Swype. Tutorial goodness, have fun!

    I'm getting better, all the other features of the phone are too good to give up for my bad typing skills.

    Don't forget to try it in landscape mode if you haven't...it's easier that way too

    Anyone else really use to soft key buttons? I keep barely touching the the keys thinking it is soft key, I am so use to it. I will get use to it eventually, I really wanted physical buttons but it will take time getting use to it.

    After a day or two, you'll get used to Swype and never use anything else. If you've used another virtual keyboard, you will be amazed by Swype. IF you're used to physical keys, it may take some more getting used to.

    THIS!!!! :D

    My last two androids had softkeys. I do the "light touch" on the buttons all the time and then realize I have to actually mash the button. I kinda liked the soft keys better, but I'm getting used to it!
