    How Often Have You Used This D-pad?

    I can remember only twice.

    I open up the keyboard once in a while to look at it, but never used it except when first signing onto Google on the phone. Thanks to the iphone, I have adapted to the virtual keyboard and prefer it over the real one. The D-pad is another story, I play with it for the hell of it, but I don't use it ever.

    I use it to go back and fix typos while using the physical keyboard. I can see it be useful for flash games.

    I actually use the Physical keyboard more then the Virtual.
    In the beginning i liked the choice, and eventually started using the physical more.

    It's one of the main reasons the phone stood out to me in the first place.
    Although i wish they had removed the D-pad for a slightly bigger keyboard,

    im old school i always use the physical keyboard and the D pad. once in a while i use virtual but it's too easy to touch something by accident and have it register. i need more practice i guess.

    I'm assuming the people that don't use the physical keyboard much might have wished there was more space on the keyboard and could have gone without the dpad, and maybe they would use the physical keyboard then.

    I really don't see the big deal, because I have huge hands (read: fat) and I can type just fine on it. I make almost the same amount of mistakes as I did on my LG Voyager, which had a much bigger keyboard. Just takes time to get used to things.

    I rarely use the keypad much less the dpad... I use the keyboard when I want to put in alot of numbers or fix long emails. Other than that I really dont.

    I have used it for playing games with NESOID. Works okay for that. That is about it.

    I use it daily. I thought the virtual keyboard with swype was going to replace the hardware keyboard for me, but it didn't. I still use the physical keyboard predominantly. d-pad it VERY nice for placing the cursor where I need it.

    I also use it daily. Definitely cursor friendly.
