After doing some text messaging and IMing on a T9-enabled phone, I can’t go back to my old phone. Here’s why. If I were to type This is an example on a T9-enabled phone, I would type:
8447 47 26 3926753
For a non-T9-enabled phone, like my SCP-6200:
844(space or wait)4447777 4447777 266 339926755533
Granted, every once in awhile I have to cycle through a word combination to get to the word that I’m actually looking for with T9, but 97% of the time, it’s right on.
This is a no brainer.
