I am new to the forum and new to droids /smartphones as well. I have just got a LG Vortex but it is going back as I am having trouble using the keyboard. The old thumbs are not cut out for the soft touch lol. I want a keyboard like the hard board on the droid 2. I am still open to any suggestions as to a new phone. I want one that will be super easy to tether as I am not very computer literate being from the old school (age 63.5). About all I can offer is moral support when it comes computer. I have lived a long time and will try to give decent living advice to young folks that might need it. I hope that is considered fair barter by the forum members.
