Hi diddle ive the samsung sll which is touch screen it took me a while to learn how to use it but i did find a (really cant think what it is called) but its like a pen and you just touch the screen and keypad with it, it makes the phone easier to use, mind you every now and then when fibro fog comes along i can just look at it think how do i do that lol x

Have a good day

Hi diddle your right about fibro not going with technology, I've lost count of the amount of times that I've gone to delete an e-mail then got a fibro jerk and deleted the one above as well!!!!!!
