My thumbs know where the keys are on the Blackberry without looking for the most part. Just like regular typing the words flow out effortlessly and it's a good feeling. Not so on the touch screen with the Samsung. I had to hunt and peck with my index finger. I'd slowley hit the wrong keys and spend most of my time correcting mistakes. Sometimes I'd just say to heck with it and not send the text. I suffered with that for long enough. I tried the option where you drag your fingers along and all of that other crap, and I don't want to talk text as I don't want the whole world hearing what I'm texting. The keyboard kept turning if I didn't hold the thing straight. I do admit that the online experience was better on the Samsung but it wasn't something I used very much.
I thought the track pad on the Blackberry had failed. That was why I got the Samsung in the first place as my service no longer had Blackberry. Very sad.. so I went in hunt for a place that could fix mine. I charged the battery and the phone worked. I'm not sure if it got wet when I took it skiing or not, but now it works and I'm back in black.
