    Anyone upgrade from the D1 to the Charge? How did you handle losing the physical keyboard? I use my keyboard a lot and don't want to lose it.. however I really want a 4G phone. Thoughts?

    I left my moto droid for the droid x recently and I still miss the physical keyboard... You can always wait until a 4g phone with keyboard comes out... Unless you need a faster right now...

    Went from Droid 1 to Droid 2 to charge. No problem whatsoever. The screen is a lot bigger which means the touch keyboard is bigger and way easier to use. 4G is awesome. Go for it

    I came from an OG droid to the charge and while I did love the keyboard I can deal with the on-screen keyboard as long as its the gingerbread one and not the stock one. As far as other decisions the droid 3 is making its way out with a slider keyboard and getting great reviews (but isn't 4g).

    I went from D1 to a DX2 and I was glad to lose that keyboard. Never used it and I found it a PITA to use. Love the bigger screen that DX2 offers. dancedroid

    I left my D1 for the charge. I actually only used the D1 keyboard when playing Snesoid, so it isn't too hard of an adjustment for me. I prefer the touchscreen keyboard.

    I came from the Touch Pro 2 with the infamously amazing keyboard. I had that phone since it came out, and it's 3 predecessors before. I thought I would hate the touch screen keyboard, but on this large screen, it's not so bad.

    One thing that bits me is I no longer have the directional keys. I type a lot (as you can see), and I also am a perfectionist, so I don't like to misspell words (I don't do shorthand code in text messages either).

    I also recommend the Gingerbread keyboard. Better than stock.

    SwiftKey X is an outstanding touch keyboard. I don't miss not having my slide out keyboard at all.
