    I never use it. I find that I can fly in virtual landscape and do pretty good on portrait too. Not complaining cause I love this phone but if another came out with same features, OS 2.0 and better keyboard (Read: Motus) I would jump ship ASAP.

    I'm the opposite, after the learning curve on using it, I find that I use it for long messages and the virtual keyboards for short typing

    Maybe I'm just a '******,' but I didn't have a learning curve with the physical keyboard. I type with 99% accuracy on it via thumbs and have a hard a time with the virtual keyboard via my large clumsy thumbs.

    Never. Don't see the need. But I guess it's nice that it's there...

    Its about 60/40 for me as I use the onscreen keyboard more, but the slider is very nice if I want to see more of the screen as i type....glad to have it.

    I use the on screen for short text messages or emails. Other than that its slide out. I really don't use landscape virtual keyboard ever though. Autocorrect is nice but I'm still pretty BA overall with RH virtual keyboard.

    I use the slide out keyboard all the time. Probably about 95% of the time. I have it slide open all the time when I'm using the browser using it as a grip to hold the phone.

    Unless I use my thumbnails only, I always get multiple letters (adjacent keys) when I use the slide out kb. I downloaded a text editor to try and practice on the physical keyboard, and maybe eventually get it.

    I started out using the virtual keyboard but I find it does not always register my key strokes. I find that to be a bit annoying because I want it to go as fast as I can. The only thing the slideout is missing is the auto correct and word options that I do not know why they didn't put in. I hope an app or patch will activate this feature as I am not the best speller.

    Combo user here.. Virtual keyboard for shorter messages, physical keyboard if I'm really rolling with an email or a back and forth text conversation. (Wish everyone I knew had G Chat)!

    I've tried it out a couple times but that's about it. Not that I think it's a terrible keyboard or anything, I'm just really used to virtual keyboards so don't have much use for it.

    IMHO its an awesome virtual keyboard.

    I'm with the majority don't use the keyboard unless it happens to be a long email. I live in a virtual world most of the time anyway.

    i use it mostly for editing stuff (move the cursor precisely, copy and paste and if i'm typing in an odd string of characters since then the autocorrect is disabled)

    but i'd say for me 85% virtual 15% physical
