Does Texting On A iPhone 4 / Touchscreen Phone Drive You Crazy?

It's like you just wanna throw it at a wall because if ur like me with big patties for hands you keep having to go back to correct it and somehow u just wish there was a keypad as well.

some phones have both a touch screen and a keypad. HTC make them as the "pro" version of popular phones.

my dell streak gets on my nerves sometimes cause it almost ALWAYS misses out the y in your and you. grrrrrrrr!

I really like the iPhone 4 but its the thought of the touchscreen texting putting me off.. I had a ipod touch and was always having to correct my words whilst typing in on the touch screen...Most of the time it was easier and quicker to text by borrowing the wifes keypad phone, I liked the swipe the photos and everything else touchscreen thou...the iPhone 4 is also very good for the music.

I really like texting on my iPhone, I can text most of the time without even looking at the screen oO

Now thats got to be impossible..I ve seen my son do it on a keypad phone but a iPhoneoO

yep i hate texting on a touchscreen too , takes me twice the time , thought it would be something i would get used to in time , but not the case so far !:|

It's no the texting that is my problem, its the predictions it comes up with! When I have inputted a word it doesn't know it just guesses and it drives me crazy some of the time!

I can't stand texting using a touchscreen hence I use a Nokia N900 now, it's a shame there's so few qwerty keyboard touchphones now particularly with Android.

Unfortunately not for iPhones yet

Yeah thats the one thing thats always annoyed me about the iphone, it constantly puts in different words even though you have typed in the one you want and before you've noticed it's been sent, a message that doesn't make sense

Yeah, my mate was worried when I tried to send cya and it came out as cyanide.

Cyanide later doesn't sound too great...

Personally I have larger hands and I do not have any issues whatsoever when typing on the iPhone

iPhone has the best touchscreen out there,, dont even hardly need to touch the screen, so i think its amazing especially iPhone 4 due to it's speed

I have been a blackberry user for many many years and was so fast at texting in it. I last had the bberry torch which was a great concept but unfortunately the phone kept shutting down. I switched to the iPhone 5c and I HATE texting in it. It always screws up the Us and Is so it makes it look like I don't know if I mean me or u. It just sends the messages tgat don't make sense. It's taken me 5 tones longer to write this message then it ever would have on my bberry. I want to throw it at a wall. It's now freezing often. Sucks! Not worth 3 car payments!
