Default Can't change back to the LG Keyboard

Hello,

I recently bought this smartphone and I'm having some difficulties with something. I was using the LG keyboard (which simulates the usual mobile phone keyboard with letters spread around the number buttons) and somehow I changed to the Default Android keyboard.. but now I can't change back! I go to Settings -> Location and Keyboard but there's no way I can change to the LG keyboard, no chackbox, nothing. What did I do wrong? How can I go back?

I also tried installing the Swift keyboard and checkd it on the settings panel, but to no use because I always get the Android Keyboard...

Thanks

Ok, just found out how it is... press and hold the "?123" key and voilá. Not very intuitive, but it worked!

I have an optimus T but since this topic is discussed here, I'll try this forum: I have the android and the swype keyboard and I have a very hard time using either one of them. I would love to have the old number keyboard with the letters but it does not show up in my keyboard options. It only comes up when I need to dial a number. Does anyone know how I can get the number keyboard for use as text input, just as on the older phones? I would love to get some inpout.

None of the solutions are showing on my screen, only the questions. What do I need to do to see the solution.
