Today I left my iPhone at home. All I had was my SonyErricson W302 candy-bar phone that I use for business. As I was worried about where I had left my iPhone and hadn’t turned on ‘Find my Phone’ in my MobileMe account, I decided to text my other half to see if it was at home.
Texting using the W302 seems so cranky now after a year of using the iPhone. With the W302 (with predictive text turned off) you have three letters per key. When I type a word that has double letters or letters combined on the same key I have to wait for the character to register before I can enter another. It feels like it takes ages. The iPhone is much better with its full keyboard.
No wonder ‘old phone’ texting is so abbreviated. Its such a pain.
