    That's the problem I'm going thru now. :/ Great keyboard but the mistakes it randomly does is not fun.

    i'm running the HTC_ime and have had no issues - keys are slightly larger, white skin made the keys easier to discern for these 60 yr old eyes and in a few weeks i've actually gotten to where i'm typing faster than the predictive dictionary so i turned it off. - keyboard and installation instructions at HTC Keyboard on myTouch 3G - T-Mobile Community

    I'm using "Better Keyboard". It costs a couple of dollars but it works great. You can get both audio and tactile feedback on the keys. It looks really nice to. I noticed that you can also get "skins" for this keyboard and those are free I believe.

    I'm just looking into this just now. I wouldn't mind one with slighlty bigger buttons as I've got big thumbs - although not having that many issues with the native keyboard.

    I was looking at Better Keyboard, but don't want to pay for it if it's not any better.

    Well, it does have the ability to go into a QWERTY keyboard in vertical mode which means the keys will be bigger. Don't know how much that helps.

    Ive found some keyboards with alot of potential they just need to be developed, topkey, big buttons, anysoft, and tap tap keyboards al, work really well but they are lacking key features give them a try though and post some feedback

    I've found that Better Keyboard is more touch-sensitive than the default. I was having to seriously mash a couple keys, particulary the spacebar.

    but then again that costs money and im looking to stay away from that i feel like tap tap keyboard if it had vibration and predictive text it would be the best keyboard out there, its extremely uncoventional layout makes it extremely accurate and once you get used to the layout you can absolutely fly! I highly reccomend trying it out
