Does your phone have a qwerty keyboard?¿ - December 12th 2010, 07:16 PM

I'm just curious as to how widespread these yokes are getting. For anyone who doesn't know the qwerty keyboard is where the letters are arranged like a computer keyboard and not on the usual number buttons.

I voted "Other" because mine has a touchscreen with a virtual QWERTY, but no physical QWERTY.

I droped mine in the sewage. So no I don't have one.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

Wow I didn't know so many people had them now I'm trying to decide on what phone I want for Christmas and as I'll probably be having it for at least the next yera I'm thinking of getting that kind of keyboard....hmm.

Re: Does your phone have a qwerty keyboard?¿ - December 13th 2010, 11:16 AM

No, but I want one the 'normal' phone way is so annoying
I tried a touchscreen keypad with qwerty while looking for a new phone but the screens didnt pick up my fingers I guess I am just too used to using my iPad touchscreen and I didnt want to pay for an iPhone as it was too much money and those buttons were too small for me.
I think that the ones with actual keypads will still be too fiddly for me, curse these big hands!

Ps. I dont know if anyone else did but I had to run my finger along my keyboard when I wrote 'qwerty'. somewhat satisfying

I have a qwerty on a touch screen. It would definitely be inconvenient for me to move back to a T9 system of text messaging.

Re: Does your phone have a qwerty keyboard?¿ - December 16th 2010, 07:47 AM

I have a touch screen phone that slides to a QWERTY keyboard.

Definitely go to a phone store and see what you like!!! Also make sure to figure out what is a must and what you don't need (I found it stupid that my phone, LG Rumor Touch, is supposed to be a messaging phone yet they didn't put an AIM application on there).
Maybe even make a top 3 choices of QWERTY and non-QWERTY phones then choose?

I have a QWERTY keyboard but mine's a touch screen and it only appears when you turn the phone sideways. It's a bit of a fail. And it's a real pain in the ass to type on. So I just use T9.

Mine's a T9, and I gotta say, I preffer it to a qwerty on. I borrowed my friend's one (it has the qwerty keyboard) the other day, and the buttons were tiny and it felt really weird O.o

I have a BlackBerry Curve, so yeah. My old phone had one of those sliders. I can't even text on one of those 'old fashioned' phone anymore. >.> Not that I was ever that good at it. My first phone I got at 14 didn't have the "qwerty" keyboard, but the second phone I got at 16 had the slider. Thus, I never really needed to learn how to use the old method of texting, since we didn't get unlimited texting until I was 16.

I have an env3, which has a full keyboard on the inside. I use that for most of my messages. I refuse to learn to do T9, so when I type on the front I use ABC.

I've never had a QWERTY keyboard before, so when I bought the LG Rumor Touch...it was hard to get used to. My fingers are gigantic compared to the keyboard so it's really difficult to type. Still, it's a lot faster and a lot more fun to text. I'm guilty for sending random people texts just to press buttons.

Mine is a touchscreen so I don't have either. I can pick between my letters showing up in ABC order or QWERTY thought and I pick ABC order.

Yup, I have an LG voyager, it flips open to a qwerty. Gorgeous phone, in love with it, but it's out of date now
I'm going to get a new phone in a couple weeks with a slide out qwerty. Not sure what kind yet.
I'd never be able to go back to T9 and I love touchscreens but don't like qwertys on the screen.

Just chiming in to say that I have a Voyager and that was one of the best phones ever. They don't make 'em like that anymore. It was a bit huge (I had an extended battery for it so you can imagine!) but the keys on it were so nice. They felt nice too, as weird as that sounds.

I ended up with a qwerty one (: Ironically I've had no credit since before Christmas so I still haven't had much of a chance to get used to it, but it's exciting. Thanks for the resposnses!!
