    Storm users, could you ever go back to a physical keyboard on a BB?

    I was helping a co-worker with their curve today, and by the end of the help session I was ready to throw the phone threw the wall because I kept trying to touch the screen and the small keyboard made my hands hurt. So the question is this, Storm users, could you ever go back to a physical keyboard on a BB?

    I have a Storm and a 8900 (had a Bold but threw that against the wall because AT&T sucks). While the physical keyboard of the 8900 is nice I find that I type just as fast with no mistakes with the Storm. And since VZW network is so much better than TMO I find I rarely have use for the 8900.

    I would like to have a physical keyboard again, just think I would miss the large storm screen. And as I'm typing this the absence of color banding with 151 may make me reconsider.

    No way. No how. No chance.

    MAYBE if the clickwheel reappeared, but I hate playing find-the-man-in-the-boat with the trackball.

    And I could not give up the glorious screen on the Storm.

    This is my first bb... But I don't think I would ever get a virtual keyboard again... Sometimes I type and I watch it light up the letters after I'm done typing... I'm too quick and it throws me way off... Like right now the keyboard is a sentence behind lol

    Keyboards? Well, I was taught that if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. How bout' this summer heat? glad sweat doesn't bother my TouchScreen! :laugh2:
    When in doubt, pull the battery out!
