I used to think I would NEVER use a phone without a keyboard. I used a Blackberry for years then switched to the Droid 1 and then the Droid 3. I just sold my Droid 3 and will buy the Razr Maxx tomorrow. It turns out that it's just a lot easier to use Swype. I thought it was a gimmick at first but if you give it a few weeks it's amazing how incredibly fast and accurate it is and you can do it one handed with your thumb. I just found myself using it instead of turning my phone horizontal and opening up the keyboard. Before I knew it, I was never using the keyboard. Without Swype this would never have happened, I hate regular virtual keyboards, especially the iphones.
