    I've owned every single iphone ever made and now I finally switched over to the droid incredible 2 on verizon

    i have a few questions:

    typing on an android compared to an iPhone is soooo difficult, I download an iPhone keyboard and handcent and it still hard to adjust for me

    is there any application or something I can get to make typing on this phone as easy as it was for me on my iphone?

    is there any application similar to spot light that will search the phone itself and not google?

    the screen on the droid incredible 2 sucks, is the droid charge comparable to the iPhone 4 retina display?

    i'm trying really hard to like android, but the keyboard is really pissing me off.

    Welcome.

    The cool thing with Android is that you can change the stuff you don't like. There are tons of keyboards out there that you can use, just download and choose what works best for you.

    The Droid Charge has probably the best screen out of the Android phones. You have 14 days to return your Incredible 2 for a different phone.

    Root Explorer can search your phone files for things, but it requires Root. I don't know of another one off the top of my head that doesn't, except maybe Astro File Manager.

    Lol the iPhone is a better phone but the software limitations caused me to switch. The notification center on the android is nice and I also want 4G

    You can use the Google Search app to search the phone... when you first use it it asks wether you want to search everything or just the phone.

    Well, based on the fact that it drops tons of calls and doesn't function right when holding it in a certain position, id say its a worse phone. :)

    I think if you are returning it within 14 days you have to give it back....
    Because you can't just get a free device and then sell it towards a more expensive one.

    And if I were you, id wait for the Bionic.
    The Charge still have a single core processor, and has a plastic feel.

    Have you tried using swype? I got the Droid2 but if I knew swype would be so good, I would have gotten a slimmer phone with w/o a keyboard (since I barely use it now).
    Also, gesture search which I believe is pre-installed is really good as was previously stated.

    Ya thats a good idea. As long as you can keep unlimited data, all is good.
    VZW's tiered plans are very pricey.

    If I were you I'd try swype keyboard. And maybe Smart Keyboard PRO.
    There are TONS of options, but you'll have to try some out.
    Maybe you should try the Droid 3. It has a physcial keyboard.
