    I have had a slider phone for years and could text super fast. Then I switched to an Eris where I had the option of using the qwerty keyboard on landscape OR I could hold it upright and use the numeric keyboard with T9 like I did on my slider. I always held it upright and was very happy. I was having reception issues with my eris so I traded it for a Moto Droid. Is there an option for the numeric type of keyboard becuase it takes me friggin forever to type a text. Thanks!

    Unfortunately not natively. You can try searching for solutions on the forum through 3rd party apps. I will say it now, before someone else does: Swype for the win. It will CHANGE the way you type. In profile mode, I use it exclusively and it's fast!

    Better keyboard in the market has a T9 keyboard option.

    ' Perfect keyboard ' seems ok. Just downloaded it and typed one message and it seems to work! T9 does the job and it's easy to type with. Perfect for my phone with a small screen.

    Interestingly the reviews omit that it has a numeric keyboard..wierd!

    There's a free version so you can try it out first.
