    I love this Droid, but i wonder if I'll ever get good on the physical keyboard. The virtual keyboard seems so much easier to use. I start to think that if I'm not going to use the keyboard then I might as well exchange it during the 30 free trial for a HTC Eros. Well I know I wouldn't do that, but I think about it. What is your experience with the real keyboard? Are you getting better over time? Maybe my fingers are just too big. :motdroidvert:

    I actually prefer the physical keyboard. I make too many mistakes on the virtual keyboard!

    If I need to be real precise I use the real keyboard. I try to use the virtual whenever I can.

    I'm more accurate on the physical keyboard but I wish it had the same capabilities as the virtual (suggesting words).

    Never really messed with it until I did the manual update. I guess I'd better play with it some. If the predictive text was there I'd probably use it more.

    I make too many typos on the physical. I make a buttload on the virtual keyboard as well, but the Droid usually fixes them for me.

    You know, the horizontal virtual keyboard is cool with the autofill, but the delete key is in such a place that it is easy to brush and-bummer. Any suggestions? Can you change the sensitivity of the touch screen?
