Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!! I have been banging my head against the wall trying to figure out WHY the mic would not show up on my keyboard after I installed the gingerbread keyboard and after ALL the settings were set for it to show up. I even checked the settings on my msg app but could not find one specifically for the keyboard (it never crossed my mind to hard press the text area). Thanks to you I now have the mic on my keyboard!!! It was getting irritating sending a text because I have rheumatoid arthritis and texting w/o the mic was becoming cumbersome. Thanks again!
