    Getting used to touch

    I can't tell you how hard it is for me to get used to the "touch" part of the Bionic. I'm used to have a keyboard (slideout) and I keep hitting the wrong letters on the touch screen. It is irritating me to no end!

    Well, now that you have it, you might as well just plan on getting used to it! I was frustrated with it at first, too. You have to learn how to type with the edge of your finger. After someone showed me how to do it, it got a little easier.

    It took me a while to learn the touch screen. My first touch screen was half keyboard, half touch so I sort of eased into it. Now my phone is completely touchscreen and I love it.

    I have never gotten used to touch but I am still learning to. Many are the times I have hit the wrong letters and I also have some difficulty navigating through the web pages.

    It is good to hear I am not the only one on this.

    I like the new touchscreens! When they first came out, I think they were a little harder to work with. But, once you get used to it, you will find it actually a lot easier to work with than a keyboard.

    I've had a touch screen for about 6 months and it is easier. I mean I still hit the wrong letter from time to time, but not near as much as I did when I was just learning. You are a lot slower at first - so it takes a bit longer to text someone.

    I do similar when I use a friends Samsung Infuse but now that I am getting one I will end up having to learn how it works. I have never used a slide out before though I have a feeling that might mess me up too.

    I do not like the standard keypad that comes on the Android. I use Swift Key X and it is so much easier to use. I like the predictive text feature better and the keys are easier to get.

    Well, I think it generally takes a learning process to master the art of 'touchscreens.' My youngest sibling has never gotten used to this technology and he keeps insisting that is not his forte at all.

    I love my touch screen now, but the first couple of months I was cursing myself to making such a purpose, instead of just going with a keyboard. After being used to texting on a "regular" phone for 8 years, it was a tough change to get used to. It took me several months to stop hating it and I still have problems sometimes. I still find it annoying and wish they had smartphones with slide out keyboards.
