    I havent been on the forums in a while but i am just wondering if anyone else gets HORRIBLE keyboard lag. It is the main reason why i hate this phone with a passion. I am able to type very fast but this stupid phone is forcing me to type slow as $#@% because if i go too fast it doesnt register the right key or it thinks im long pressing a key. Does anyone else have this or has there been a secret fix that i dont know about?

    Download an alternate keyboard, like the droid x one from xda, they fixed some things on it.

    It works faster for me I only get lag in google voice texting now.

    I technically don't, but that might be because I type too slow anyway. According to an app on my phone, I can only type at about 25 wpm.

    You should go to their website and sign up for their beta or be notified when the beta reopens.

    Disable the heptic feedback when typing. It helps a lot.

    Also disable word prediction, or whatever it's called.

    It used to lag, especially when text messaging. But after I cleaned out the tons of messages that were saved in the SMS app, the lag vanished.

    Then I got Swype and it didn't matter.

    ^^ yes, a 'clean' phone goes a long way in solving many of the problems folks report.

    I disabled heptic feedback and that seems to help a little thanks!

    Settings > Language & Keyboard > Touch Input > Text Input and uncheck vibrate when typing.

    I've been using the Vlingo Keyboard quite a bit lately. I'm not getting much lag because I'm not actually typing anything. :D

    Thats weird. They usually email you back within 15 seconds. Have you confirmed that your email was correct?

    Actually, ever since I installed the Droid X keyboard on my Eris, I haven't had virtually any lag at all. And thats with haptic feedback turned on.

    mine lags like all hell. i use better keyboard now, but it even lagged horribly with swype and the droid x. i clear out my messages, tried haptic off, nothing helps. even haptic feedback off is still just as laggy. im learning to live with this stupid thing but its very annoying

    Rooted and use the vanilla Android keyboard. No lag issues here.

    I am starting to use a keyboard called Swiftkey, its avail in the market in beta form...so far I like it.

    Ill check out the X keyboard.

    How do I install this exactly, I tried to "use" it through input method, but it didnt show up.
