    Is there an app out there that will allow you to modify the vertical keyboard to text using the normal T9 mode for texting?

    Note: I did search before posting and came up empty handed so dont bash me if this has been asked before.

    I think Handcent text app has a T9 keyboard option.

    If you're rooted, look in the All Things Root section for the HTC keyboard thread...provides the best keyboard available on the Droid, aside from, IMHO, the Swype keyboard (which is not T9).

    Redflea, Thanks for the reply. I thought I had seen the T9 in my handcent as well. For some odd reason I cannot find it anywhere.

    If you're totally convinced that T9 is the be all / end all, you can ignore this post. But SWYPE is thee way to type on a virtual keyboard. Amazing!

    SWYPE for Android

    Swype isn't in the marketplace, it hasn't been fully released yet. I have tried just about every keyboard out there... for T9 I prefer the HTC_IME hi-res version. Although landscape hasn't been quite ironed out, the portrait works great....

    handcent is your winner.. you go into the settings and change it to T9 there

    Swype is very easy to install and my favorite thing to use, and i loved t9. i think swype is just as fast if not faster once you get the hang of it. I think I am going to go ahead and install the HTC_IME hi-res but i believe you have to be rooted to do that?

    you do not have to be rooted. just download the apk and install it. I'm typing this with v9 :)

    Rogue, I am not seeing the voice button on any of the keyboards. What is your set up for hancent? Do I need to be creating a text message.

    Thanks for the previous quick reply

    gmail and tapatalk make it easy to respond quickly..

    the microphone is on the Eris keyboard... sorry I wasn't more specific. I suppose its in the settings on the keyboard itself. have you loaded it yet?

    I meant its on the keyboard so you need to load that first, whether it be on handcent or on droids native messaging app

    so in the end nothing to do with handcent lol..

    it is a great program though and worth a look
