As you know the the HTC TyTNII comes with a built-in QWERTY Keyboard, and that is extremely useful and fast when sending messages either via SMS or Email.
But one of the BIGGEST sacrifices that i had to mentally prepare myself was that the fact i cannot send an sms with one hand!
The built in applications for HTC TyTNII comes with a Touch Screen Keyboard, Symbol Pad, Scribbler and Transcriber. So for the first 5 days of using the TyTNII i had to keep using two hands to type out smses to friends!! Very irritating if u are waiting in traffic whilst in the car (Don't drive and SMS... :)
I was really glad when Danny showed me his HTC P6300i phone that had a new application installed. After going thru the input series, found out that it was a HTC original application called HTC Phone Pad 1.0
And what the Phone Pad does is that it gives u the option of inputing text/numbers into the phone by using a keypad which is pretty similar to a typical handphone. It has a T9 dictionary and it allows u to type in words the T9 way!
The best part is that the keypad is large enough to fit my thumb and ... YES!! Whilst waiting at the Traffic Light in the car, i will have no problems typing out and sending out SMSes! :) hehe
