Using a keyboard with SmartTV

I recently purchased the Samsung UN40ES6100 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz Slim LED HDTV. It is allegedly a "SmartTV" but is not compatible with any keyboard. In order to fill in text boxes on websites (or even enter my email address to get into my Netflix account) I must use the tv remote control and move the cursor around on the virtual keyboard on the screen to pick out each letter individually, one at a time. And heaven help you if you accidentally hit the wrong key on the remote and have to start over. This is highly aggravating! Samsung customer service did not help at all, nor will the company allow me to upgrade to a better model that is compatible with a keyboard. And there is nothing that can be done to my tv, apparently, to make it compatible. I used to be a Samsung fan but am now angry that I am stuck with a tv that is so user-unfriendly. Any thoughts are welcome!
