    I can't stand texting with a number pad. Why would you want that? You have a full keyboard to use!

    I doubt they're changing the keyboard, unless it's bigger.

    The number pad is there in 3.x. You have to turn off MMS in message settings and then you will get the number pad when you are typing a phone number in for text messaging. It shows the full punctation keyboard, because you can send an MMS to an email address.

    FYI, when you send an MMS to anyone it actually is always by email. Your phone has an email address and the "inbox" is the messages app. Try it for your self. Send your self an email from computer to your phone. Your phone email address is (212) 555-1234(at)mms.att.net

    Your phone number (at) mms.att.net

    hopefully 4.0 brings both options instead of having to choose between them :D

    Are you saying that, in some previous version of the iPhone OS, if you clicked on the _123 button in the SMS app it would bring up a standard number pad for entering numbers instead of the usual offering? That's a cool feature, but I imagine it was changed for consistency's sake and is unlikely to be changed back. Apple's all about UI consistency.
