Q keyboard layout description

For Q users or prospective users...

The square with the raised circle in the center is where the arrows and center button are located. This is used to select menu items. There are two long buttons on either side of this as well as two smaller square buttons below these on each side. The long buttons are the left and right soft keys. The small buttons below the left soft key are the talk/answer button on the far left and the home button next to the arrow square. Below the right soft key are the hangup/end/power button to the far right and the back button next to the arrow square.

On the qwerty keyboard, the dot is on the D, which also functions as the number 5. The bottom row is shifted right, and where the Z would normally be is the alt key. On the right side, below the P key, is the enter key. Below this is the caps key.

On the bottom row, the left-most key is the email key. 0 is to the left of the spacebar. The camera key is to the right of it, and the speaker phone/voice recognition key is the last key to the right. The key on the actual right side of the phone near the thumb wheel is another back key.

This is why I need to see one of these phones. Your description was good. Please don't think it's not, but I just do better with hands on when trying to visualize something. But still, it at least gives me some idea. So thanks!

seeing the Q
Oh, I totally agree that seeing the phone is a must. Is there a Verizon store near you? The keys are pretty small and took some getting used to; but I'm doing ok with them. If you see it, my description will probably make a lot more sense.

Re: seeing the Q
I went to a wireless store today... one of those that provides for a few wireless companies including Verizon, Sprint, and maybe one other one. Either way, both Verizon and Sprint have the Q available, but this guy said he didn't have any of them in right now, and then he went on to discuss how he didn't think he'd get any more because customers complained about them, said they were fragile.... basically was trying to talk me out of getting the thing. He then was trying to suggest other phones. That's all fine and good, but I told him thanks but I had to have specific ones because I have to have special software, and I informed him that I'd look on the site to see what might work. So whatever. Guess he hates the Q, which is funny because I've heard from a couple other people that they really like it, and I've not heard of them breaking and all that. Sure they're thin, but I guess maybe his customers aren't too careful with their phones. Whatever, I'll go to my other Sprint store at a later date and time. But at least I tried!
