I understand the predictive keyboard and have it mastered with a stylus 
but it is still insane, sadly when it comes to SMS I'd say that IMO the 
iPhone wins, I'd be happier wit a number pad like the dialer that just 
did T9 input frankly. Also to find a contact since the scrolling never 
works with the use of a finger I have to whip out my stylus to scroll 
down to who I want to call, if I don't have their # memorized. I love my 
FreeRunner don't get me wrong but those two things drive me up a wall so 
quickly that on occasion if I know it's going to be a day filled with 
lots of SMSing I have been known to grab my old Samsung T409 cause I can 
text so much faster on it, but that's rare cause I much prefer using my OM.
