Do You Miss The Physical Buttons On Your Phone?

There used to be a time when dialing a phone number; we actually had to press the physical buttons the the keypad. There was a 'physical' connect that bonded humans to the phone. But those days are gone. Everything has been replaced by the touchscreens and we all have become 'screenagers'.

Do you miss the physical buttons on your phone?
Yes I do miss it. I have been using touchscreen for over 2 years now and I was missing the keypad and buttons a lot. So I decided to maintain two cell phones one with keypad and the other touchscreen so that I don't miss either of them 😛

I hate touch screens. I know that touch is the present and the future.
It is so difficult to get used to it in the beginning. I have a Samsung Wave and I used to hate it when I scroll through the contact list and the scroll goes from A to L in a split second.
Miss the buttoned phones badly.

Actually, you should get phone which works for you better & get your most of the work done. Not worrying about whether it's present thingy or future 😛

It's good you have Wave, if you had an Android mobile, you'd be much more disappointed !

Hell I love my touchscreen! Sure the buttons were okay, but I think touchscreens are more neat.
