    I want to know if there is a keyboard extension like itypefastr but when you switch to it its like texting with a regular phone. The closest i can cme t describing what i mean is like saying texting with a regular candy bar phone keypad where the number one has the symbols number 2 has abc etc

    It's actually faster to type with a keyboard like that. But it has to have T9 (I think it's called T9..), which guesses the word you type. So you if press DEF, MNO, GHI, then it'll guess "dog" which is really useful especially since the keys are much bigger so it's a lot easier too.

    Some people have thicker thumbs, doesn't work as well on a full key-board especially a touch-screen one.

    Although, with the keyboard that's been presented up there, wouldn't the auto-predict help out a bit? And even with a regular key-board I could type pretty fast without T9, when you had to hit 1 twice to get B. haha!

    I want to get this too, I wonder if I could download it on Edge? It's all we got out here, and dial-up. 3G and WiFi is in town...
