I've used qwerty and qwertz keyboads on a PC so I don't think I would have that much of an issue. Also I have a couple people checking to see if the keypad can be changed and the phone programming updated to be qwerty.
From other phones that I have seen that people have tried to change they weren't able to cause it's in the coding and such...so I would say it wouldn't be able to ...would just have to watch out though cause people could change the keypad and say that it's qwerty but it's actually qwertz
