    - Download this zip file:

    http://files.getdropbox.com/u/1002975/ANDROID/Tastiera%20T9%20Samsung%20Galaxy.zip

    - Copy the two .apk files to the memory of you Galaxy (you can mount your SD card to your PC and copy the files - plug in the cable, pull down the notification bar and click 'USB connected', then mount the sdcard. It'll show up as a new drive on your computer)

    - Install Astro File Manager from the android market

    - Then open Astro File Manager and click and install HTC_IME , and then click and install Clicker

    - Go to Locale & Test in the settings menu and select Touch Input and Exit

    - Go back into Locale & Text and in the Touch Input options choose the alphanumeric Keypad and exit.

    - Now create a new text message and click and hold the text box and select Input method, and select Touch Input

    (If you use adb you can just install the apk by typing adb install HTC-IME.apk and adb install Clicker.apk)

    This is great man, thanks a lot! I can't believe no one had thanked you before, I went ahead and registered an account here just express my gratitude. The keyboard, is really the only thing that I envied of Hero users. I can do without the extraneous eye-candy, but good UI is good to have.

    Not sure if this is old news, but I've been using the TouchPal keyboard and I find it to be very good.

    I have it configured for full qwerty in landscape and T+ (2 letters to a key like BB Pearl) in portrait. I find this makes the keys big enough to hit in portrait and the word prediction takes care of the rest.

    It's free until Sept 30th.

    I tried touchpal, and I couldn't stand it. I like the HTC keyboard a lot more. That's just my own personal experience though.

    That's the great thing about android, you have a choice!

    I like TouchPal because the keys are bigger and I have big thumbs. I found the keys on the HTC keyboard too small.
    I also love that I can choose different layouts for portrait and landscape.

    Mine is little laggy and choppy the standard keyboard is much more responsive, If not for lag it would be perfect.

    Eh... used it... not that impressed.

    Just get Touchpal or Better Keyboard (cost $). Better options IMO

    Yes, it does. All apps are affected - not just sms.

    You can go to locale settings and turn on 'sound on keypress' for the stock android keyboard. Not sure about this one, but probably can too.

    Yeah wierd, even tho the setting is in the 'android keyboard' sub section, it still doesnt work!

    I use adb to install the keyboard. If you're on galaxo, its already installed - hold down a text box and go to select input method and you'll have touch keyboard.

    If not, you can use astro. Open app manager and it should let u install it.

    Or use adb to install it

    adb install apkname.apk
