    Ok! I finally and eagerly updated from a Blackberry to a Droid and lo and behold I cannot function on this keyboard. I am a very fast and proficient typist with fingernails just over the edge of my fingertips. I cannot function on this keyboard - I have tried for hours - I finally googled and found actual pending litigation about this. I called Verizon and they waived my fee to go in and swap out my phone - being a customer since 1997 I am glad they treated me this way - this has been a 6 hour nightmare of phone swap outs, charges, credits, etc. These phones were never tested on women. A man who is a guitarist cannot use his either. Anyone up in arms about this? If Verizon intends to come out with the IPhone by year end, they must have someone working on this....I am steaming over inequities.

    I see no problems with the keyboard, especially on the better droid 2.

    Seems you're used to your blackberry, did you happen to try the Droid Pro? That's the most "blackberry-like" Droid there is.

    I am a big man with big sausage fingers and I have no problem using the keyboard on the droid 2... Did it take some getting used to? Yes. Do I still make spelling errors and mis hit keys? Of course. If it's not for you then it's not for you, but it didn't take me that long to get used to it.

    Droid isn't for everybody. Sorry it didn't work out for you.

    There's a learning curve to the Droid and some people can handle it some can't. I wish you luck with whatever phone you will be using in the future.

    seems the Droid isn't for you and your group of friends then.

    Sorry to ask again, but which Droid are you using exactly?

    OK. You made your speech and we politely listened. We got it, you didn't like the Fascinate, or whatever Android phone you have.

    We try to keep our forum friendly. If you came in here hoping for an argument you're not going to find one.
