This. I remember some 14 years ago dropping one of the old motorola clam shell phones on the same day I bought it. No recourse. Accidental damage was not covered at the time so I was stuck with a busted outside screen for 2 years.

Smart phones are different. I'm always forgetting to charge them so much I don't even take them out of my pocket. Dyspraxia can be good because if I remembered to charge it, it would have been broken by now! :lol:

I have very small hands and still can't type on my phone. I have always had this issue and never understood what I was doing wrong until now. Struggle to swipe on it as well and always dropping it!

Have you tried Text-To-Speech? It's a lot better than it used to be, especially on Android phones.

I meant Speech-To-Text, lol, in that you can use your voice to type messages. :)
