    I got the update last night around 11:30 (Austin Texas, 78613 fyi) and a friend of mine received his a day prior. I have been going through all the new stuff.. and so far I like it. the text message problem I was having went away (I had too many texts, and it would freeze when attempting to delete threads) but the one main concern I have right now is....

    I have no On-Screen keyboard. I have been lurking around this forum since last night and have yet to figure out how to find this mystical app... I have gone into the "settings-->sound/display" menu and have found the boxes to enable the Orientation and Animation, but there is not one single thing that mentions an On-Screen keyboard.

    Any help guys/gals????

    the checkbox to turn on the keyboard is here:

    settings>Locale & Text

    (you have to scroll down to see this section)

    I forgot to mention I had found those options also. The box marked "Android keyboard" is checked with a green arrow...

    When I enter the sub-menu that says "android keyboard" each box is also checked (vibrate, sound, auto caps, quick fixes, suggestions, auto complete)

    Now how do I bring up this on screen keyboard when I enter into the text box? It still does not appear and I have the full sized blank screen. When I press and hold on the text box at the bottom, a box appears that says Edit text with "Input Method" under that. When I click this Input Method it gives me ONE option, and that is Android Keyboard (with the green circle next to it)

    That is all.. it gives me no other choices...
