texting on diamond

im sure this has been beat to death, however i wanted to make my own thread!!

coming from a full keyboard is the diamond a realistic option? i do a lot of texting as i cant walk around talking on my phone all day at work. i love the size of the diamond and as you all probably know slightly used or even new they are great value
i currently have a q9c and its getting really banged up, im not really all that thrilled with the new linup of phones, they all seem to have the same processors memory from last year with some new sparkle. so i have been looking at my options for something new to hold me over.

Re: texting on diamond

texting is fine. i use the stylus most of the time but with touchpal i dont even need it. its just faster for me with it. if you cant live with a onscreen keyboard then get the pro

Re: texting on diamond

I've had the Diamond and the Pro and while there is a small learning curve going to an onscreen KB you get used to it. I can fire off text pretty fast using the stock keyboard. I also have SPB Fullscreen KB for longer emails etc..

I don't text a lot. My last phone was a motorola Q, which was very easy to type on. I have "gotten used to" texting on screen, but don't love it. If you text a lot, you should give it a lot of thought before jumping..

Re: texting on diamond

I text alot and answer emails even more. I own the diamond and an iPhone. Personally, the diamonds on-screen keyboard is useless to me as my fingers are large. Typing with a stylus is even slower! If you wanted an on-screen keyboard, I would look for a phone with a larger display (if you have big fingers) or opt for a phone with keyboard.

Re: texting on diamond

My thumbs are short but stubby yet I've found that TouchPal actually does pretty good in compact qwerty mode for me. I did one online speed test through Opera and got 35 WPM. I just use my right hand and everyone is just amazed at my typing ability.
