Nope, the only thing you can do is changing to other OS.

I like typing with physical T9 keypad. It's like become DNA in my life. Haha, just kidding. Well, if there's no work around, then change phone. If possible to stick with Symbian I will too.

Why you want to stick with symbian when is no longer supported by Nokia. Its very buggy, slow and laggy. So many cheap android phones but way faster than symbian you can choose from.

yeah, i don't mind physical button or not. but some pretty hefty with numpad/keypad.
which only symbian did offer. giving up on this kind of phone somehow unavoidable.

wondering if any people here still using symbian for whatsapp.
