Are there any phones left with koodo that have a physical keyboard for typing besides that one lonely blackberry 9320 on the pre-owned area? A full keyboard, not the alcatel one with the abc def ghi stuff.

Nope, right now Blackberry is the only company that is really making a full QWERTY device. There are some small ones here and there, but if your set on a keyboard blackberry is probably your best bet.

You can add attachments to many popular phones. Very slick. Here is one for iphones.

You can find some Droids but only on the used market.

My sister-in-law requires a physical keyboard, due to fashionably longer fingernails that get in the way with touchscreen so I can't argue if that's an issue.

I used to have a slider with keyboard because I am a typing geek. Got fed up with small size and Samsung Note II with Hacker keyboard (software) installed is just fine. In landscape mode, the keyboard is wider than any hard-keyed phone on the market --- over 4 inches (10 cm) in width & lots of space to use bigger text sizes. Plus you get an up-to-date phone at a fraction of the price of the latest Note 4.

Texting from home I can use my Mac bluetooth computer keyboard paired to the phone or the entire computer screen with MightyText software. These last 2 solutions work with just about any bluetooth-enabled phone.
