    I've had my 1st BB, the 9930 for almost a month and really like it.

    One feature I wish it had was an onscreen keypad for making calls. It would make things a bit easier when dialing a new phone number.

    How would that make it easier than just typing it in using the keyboard?

    Sorry just being realistic...not trying to be an *******.

    Actually I agree. The numbers on the keyboard are small and hard to use when dialing, plus you can't see what letters they correspond to on a dumb-phone keypad which is sometimes necessary. The touchscreen dialers are really nice and easy to use (I had the storm2 before this and have used iphones and androids and they are all quicker and more appealing than dialing from the BB keyboard).

    They should have it that when you touch the "phone" icon that it brings up a number pad for touch screen dialing. Would definitely be a nice feature.

    I agree. The calculator is already touchscreen. Besides, when you start to get on in years those keys start to look mighty small.

    Just a quick tip.. If u have a number with letters like say 1800flowers, just dial the numbers like normal and when u get to the letters just hold the alt key and what ever letter u need and when u dial it will dial the correct number for u.

    That would be awesome!

    Dialing phone numbers using the keyboard is really the only thing I don't like about my 9930. I'm sure it wouldn't take much to give the 99xx an onscreen keypad for dialing.
