Default qwerty display on screen?

Please Login to Remove!

I had heard that it is possible to display the qwerty keyboard on the 8130's screen and use the trackball to select letters when entering text for e mails, etc...is this possible or must I use the hard keys (lettering is hard to see for old eyes....

maybe a 3rd party program does that but i have yet to see a factory option that enables that.

I second that, have yet to see anything that would allow this, unless its 3rd party.

it really wouldnt make sense to have this on the pearl in the first place though because the pearl is special because its smaller and more sleek. if he is looking for a full qwerty then thats why they have other full qwerty blackberrys

it does seem kind of time consuming but if the op is concerned about old eyes the qwerty bbs would be even harder to type on as their buttons are even smaller, like on that episode of the office....
