I prefer the iPhone's keyboard over those plastic ones. The buttons are too small and like Jobs says, it always there. I don't want to see a keyboard when I'm listening to music.

yes and besides, I don't remember any device getting this much "studied", what next, "iPhone not suitable for watching movies..screen too small"?

well if they think the keyboard is not suitable for heavy text use, they should just get a stupid blackberry, or even worse, a sidekick.
Leave the iPhone to the cool people!

Dear God. Grow up.

So it doesn't text as well as other units? Big deal. There's no need to get all sour grapes about it.

Am I the only one that finds texting on the iPhone as easy as it has ever been? It feels so effortless and my mistakes are virtually always corrected correctly :). I had a blackberry prior to this so I was used to the QWERTY layout already. I consider myself a heavy texter, I got the 1500 a month plan.

No, you're not the only one. My previous phone had a standard numeric keyboard and its predictive text was still time consuming enough that it was misery to text or even enter events on the calendar. The iPhone certainly does take some getting used to, which you can't do in the half-hour this study actually gave, but at least for me I've found it vastly superior to tiny keys or numeric pads now that I've used it for a while.

Texting on the iPhone is ridiculously easy. People see me texting on it and they're just baffled and then I watch them on their Nokia (lawl) or their Sidekick and can't help but laugh.

The keys on my blackberry 8830 were even smaller than the ones on the iPhone, so I can't understand where all this complaining is coming from. And if you didn't come to the iPhone from another QWERTY keyboard, then people should be grateful that they don't have to deal with T9 and all that nonsense anymore. I love the iPhone keyboard!

Well personally I send an average of 16,000 txts a month so I think this thread is completely wrong. And I'm on my iPhone right now lol.

This is not really a “complaining” thread, it is just to discuss the crazy “studies” the iPhone goes through. A couple of weeks ago there was that study that the iPhone contained hazardous materials (which I don’t think people started to place their phones under the sink). In other words is a place to show the “studies” how f#$% up they are.
