No. Technically, you are allowed to search in a book. I can't recall just which key does it, but you can search for page numbers, or even phrazes. And you use the keyPad for input.

How do you search for words on a Victor Stream. Do you get to the dictionary by pressing one until it says dictionary, then, I guess you have to key in your word like s is 7 four times and like that?

Best from,

While I am a prescriptivist in grammar, and while I like to explain myself clearly and debate with civility, I feel as if I am back in Honour's Logic, where my every word is scrutinised. I also said "I can't imagine", which is stating an opinion. I, personally, can't see how this is possible. I didn't say "it is a fact that", or "I know that", or simply "no one can do this". I wouldn't expect anyone to read my personal opinion as an absolute fact, as they are two different things.

The only time I would ever need to work with ribbons is in Wordpad and Notepad, and I have changed both of them so that is no longer the case. As I said, I seee no need in complicating things that already work well.

Returning to the actual topic of this thread, does anyone have information on the systems that I mentioned, or does anyone have a phone that he would be interested in selling to me?

Thank you,

Gene, while your knowledge of technology is obviously vast, you seem
to like to tell people what to do and how to think and express their
ideas. I never said that other people couldn't text using the
numberpad. Clearly, several here have explained that they use them
successfully. I said that I couldn't. I tried to enter a simple
word and became extremely frustrated. It's not for me, and I'm not
the only one who experiences such difficulties.

agree with keypad phones. they have to be more tedious than a touch

I don't ever text, but even if I were to do so, I can't see how
anyone can write quickly with numbers. I actually researched the
letter/number combinations, out of curiosity, but I couldn't
imagine trying to navigate the Internet, etc. like that. My
Kyocera Rally has a regular telephone keyboard on it and no way to
connect an external qwerty. This is why, though it has a browser,
I have never used that feature.

Hi all,

I believe the Samsung Gusto has a QWERTY keyboard.
