From my experience with touchscreen phones I've found that they're useless for the most important function - Texting and phoning. Phoning not so much unless a button hits when I take it out of my pocket. But texting is a nightmare. It's often inaccurate, sloppy and painfully slow.

The only pro's of a touchscreen phone is the fat it looks cool. But fails badly in practicality.

Disagree. What's phoning btw? Texting is a little harder than a keyboard, but you get used to it. iPhone 3G ftw.

Phoning as in calling. E.g. I'll phone her"

As for bang little harder than a keyboard, I disagree. If you hold it sideways maybe, but the buttons are small.

As for being little harder than a keyboard, I disagree. If you hold it sideways maybe, but the buttons are small.

This is why I have a LG Xenon.

It's completely touch screen but has a qwerty keyboard for texting (you can use the touch screen for texting, but I prefer just sliding it open for the quicker keybroard). Comes in blue, red, and black (got mine in blue).

Oh. Why would this be any different on touch screen phones? I haven't noticed any difference.

E.g. I'll phone mom

I fixed it for ya. :)

Experience my friend, experience.

Sometimes the screen will get hit on the way out of the pocket\ I hit the wrong button when unlocking the phone.
