    I just switched from a t9 phone and I'm living my phone so far. The only complaint is that I can't find a keyboard that works without looking. I isuppose I just need to get used to the keyboardand find where the keys are. Swype is probably the easiest so far. I tried at9 keyboard but there are no physical tells to find the keys.anyone gave any advice or a trick that works for them?

    I'm typing with one hand btw.

    Swype is the best you are gonna get, I had the same issue coming from a t9 phone as well. You could type faster then most anything as long as you knew the grid and how many ups and downs it takes to get to a word.

    SwiftKey is pretty nice as well - good word prediction if that is the sort of thing you're looking for. Vlingo has good voice recognition as well if totally want to go without a keyboard, but this technology is still not perfect by any means so neither Google or Vlingo can get it right every time.
