    My whole thing is if you are going to complain about something then why don't you support the developers that made the app that will do what you are complaining about?

    just get used to the full keyboard on here now. Now one would really want that style keyboard. I came from a blackberry to the droid and i am happy with the keyboard. But i picked up someones old phone without a keyboard and sent one simple text message. umm yeah that was the end of that i ain't never going back to that again. lol

    i see, to each his own i guess. I can't even go back to a number keypad for texting, i can still do it but it just feels so slow. The virtual keyboard is the huge part of the Droid and they got a physical one, so it's hard to avoid. Hate to say it but full keyboards is pretty much the new standard, T9 is old technology that many developers have moved on from. kinda weird how it doesn't have t9 to begin with though...maybe they'll have it in the next update

    I love the predictive full qwerty but I think that the T9 is still usefull. With my old phone I used to text a lot one handed at work. I haven't picked an app with T9 to download yet but I plan on choosing one soon.

    i recommend you try Swype. great for one handed use, though you might not find it as fast as t9.

    back in the day of my numberpad texting days I never used t9, couldn't get used to it. so always entered by amount of presses. swype is definitely and upgrade over that.
