That's the exact reason why I never got an iPhone and why I've been waiting for the Pre. I have a Treo, which I love. I love the buttons. I've tried the keyboard on the iPhone, and I have an iPod Touch (which is awesome). People say that you get used to the touch screen keypad. But the way I see it, when ever somebody says you'll get used to something it probably sucks to begin with. I never had to get used to the Treo buttons. And I always thought that if there was a phone for Sprint that was like the iPhone, but had actual buttons, I'd get it. So I'll be picking up the Pre pretty soon.
