DEFY Virtual Keyboards... no "Number/12-key" Version!??!

I was playing with one of these in the store as I'm trying to finally move to the current times and give up my flip phone... the only reason is I can't find a phone with a bigger screen/android/symbian OS that has the standard "12-Key" configuration.

Many touch phones you can change the standard QWERTY keyboard to the 0-9 number pad to type with (3 letters on each key and using T-9)

This one doesn't have it --- does anyone know of an app that can add one??? It's the only thing stopping me from getting the phone...

WCDMA 850 & 1700

Does that mean it COULD work on AT&T's 3G network? (Atleast in places that use 850MHz).

I know in my city they use it.

Thinking about getting this for AT&T, does anybody have any experience of unlocking android phones? Will T-mobile give me an unlock code?
Heyhey, we're thinking the same thing. Before you go forward, double-check that the UMTS in your area is on the 850 frequency!

As to your question, I was going to have a friend on T-Mobile claim they were going overseas and see if TMo would unlock ...

Question to the author, Phillip Berne

Hi Phillip,

Thank you for your review of the product. Having worked on this product myself, I find it surprising and troubling to note that you had issues staying up on WiFi and using the WiFi calling feature.

Do you mind sharing with me the model and specs of your router along with the firmware version running on it so that we can conduct further tests and make the product better than it already is? Thank you.

I use an Apple Time Capsule as my home router. It's running Version 74200.9 of the AirPort software (also described as 7.4.2).

Good luck. The Wi-Fi issue was one of the few flaws I called out on this phone, it would be great to see that fixed.
