    Hi everyone, was just wondering what you guys suggest i can use as a phonepad type keyboard, you know the old type where you have the numbers 0-9 with the letters on each one. I'm currently having to use the stock qwerty on the X8 and the letters are far too small for my hands to cope with. Keep making plenty of mistakes. Any ideas what i can use? Thanks.

    This phone has a phonepad type keyboard. on the qwerty keyboard, long press the input button (EN/CH) to show the option to change the on-screen layout. There is also an option to activate the swipe to switch layout. Just swipe the keyboard horizontally to change the layout. Hope this helps.

    Don't know if I'm just being really thick but please can you tell me which is the "input button" and what the (EN/CH) is. I'm desparate to get this number keypad as my fingers are too fat for the Qwerty keyboard but I'm losing the will to live!!

    Many thanks!!

    I had the same problem when I updated to android 2.1 the option os wype stopped wporking - i presumed it was because i bought my phone from singapore - but you can only change the keyboard option s on the chinese keyboard. It drove me mad enough to install the HTC IME keyboard - works perfectly

    I don't have this either so I wonder if it is a regional thing?

    I use the HTC_IME Keyboard so have a look through the linked thread above and see if that suits your fat fingers!! In actual fact I have slim fingers but I still prefer to text using the numeric pad both on my X8 and X10 - I am soooo much faster!

    I used smart keyboard, with the option you can make the pad larger and smaller (with dragging keyboard in the option setting). And also you can choose the theme for the keyboard.

    First, download the keyboard. you can find it from market or other source such as the above posting.
    Second, go to SETTING > LANGUAGE & KEYBOARD > then find new keyboard option and setting on it, then mark it.
    Third, go to any input box such as message or phonebook, then press and hold on the input box. then choose INPUT METHODE, you find it!

    Try it!

    I've been using "better keyboard" now, it is a paid app, but it is good. I like it the best so far.

    Atm i'm using Smart Keyboard Pro. I get the feeling its much more precise than HTC IME keyboard... Not sure why, but even with calibration i couldnt get the precision on HTC keyboard to be good.

    I type much faster and with less errors with SKP...

    Inspired by your thread I checked every keyboard I could find (everywhere). My favorite is now Ultra Keyboard.

    Swiftkey Pro! it's not free, but it has a great predictions dictionar that makes you type a lot faster. evening if you type a wrong letter in a word, Swiftkey will still recognize and suggest you the right word.

    Could'nt live without it!
