Can anyone tell me if the Lumia 800 has a standard text message keypad (instead of qwerty).. thinking of switching from android but I hate qwerty for texting.. (and my samsung android lets me use a T9 keypad)...
Unfortunately, English alphanumeric keypad is not supported by Nokia Lumia. You can give us a feedback so that Nokia will know what can be added by the next update. Check this Link to send your feedback.
I am a big fan of Nokia and had been using only Nokia phones ever since I started using mobiles. I have been using N series mobiles since it were launched. I feel alphanumeric keypad is absolutely essential and should be made optional (as in N8), the user should have the option of using whichever keypad he/she uses. My work requires lot of typing and I am damm comfortable using alphanumeric/T9 and not QWERTY. With my N8 device, I always use alphanumeric option. I have been planning to get Lumia 800/920, but the lack of alphanumeric keypad and secondary camera has deterred me from getting one.
