    I know people will hate this but i used t9 on my old cell phone and i love it. i love the keyboard; but for just a quick easy text/reply i think that a virtual t9 keypad would be awesome like a smaller version of the phone app for messaging . Now i know people that hate t9 and i usually find out its because they do not know how to spell/text in slang/cut up words. its the same concept as having a vk in landscape its just easier more convenient now i mean this for quick texts and when your other hand is occupied.(excluding driving OK). . I dont know of anyphone that has this option and i know of other people that would like it too. Dont flame me its just a thought what do you guys think?

    No way, T9 sucks. Install the virtual keyboard if you want to do quick texting without opening the keyboard.

    I agree about the T9. Man would it rock to have a VK setup like HTC EZinput 2. Was the best keyboard ever for my Diamond.

    the thing about t9 in a keypad factor is less keys predictive = easier way to send a quick reply

    I don't know if this could happen since Blackberry owns it, but what about Sure Type? It works great on the Blackberry Storm. Here is an example:

    ok maybe I should eplain myspelf a little better I love the vk in landscape but when your holding your phone vertical it would be cool to have a keypad like the phone app with t9 reason being the keys would be bigger therefore easier to text with, with one hand. Having t9 with a full keyboard now that I don't like. T9 + keypad for messaging= a whole lot easier with one hand. I'm talking only when you have your phone vertical and only t9 with the keypad like the (phone app) not keyboard or vk.

    I get what you are saying. SureType makes it so the buttons are bigger too and is more accurate. It is very similar to T9 but there are only two letters per button.

    IMO both gregcolon3 with t9 and kasl33 with the sure type seem like great ideas. There is a point to the one hand standard viewing. The VK is very tight and I know for myself it would be nicer to have bigger keys for my bigger then palm designer fingers.
