lol.  i was already crazy before i got my iphone.  At first all i typed was 
gibberish but then i got used to it.  I like to use a blue tooth keyboard for 
long emails  where it's not practical to dictate, but I don't have to use the 
keyboard in order to get the email written.  I don't think i was that much 
faster on a number pad style keyboard.
