    Hello guys,
    I've been noticing while looking at other i7500 reviews that my keyboard layout is completely different than all the other i7500, whether in landscape or portrait mode I don't have the caps lock key, instead i have a T9 :eek: and the printed orange colour keys is what I hate most :mad:
    Pls look at this pix, and tell me what can be wrong with this keyboard.
    In my settings these are the steps:
    Settings>Locale & text >Samsung keyboard, that's all I have, no other Keyboard available, am I missing something or what?

    FV 1.5
    Baseband V I7500XXII4

    Thanks
    JT

    You have the O2 branded firmware which has the samsung keyboard. You can either install the HTC keyboard (its better but a bit laggy), install touchpal or another keyboard from the market, OR update to the II5 generic firmware using odin

    Having the I7500XXII4 :eek: (original O2 Firmware) in my device, which one you'd suggest to go for the I7500XXIH8 or I7500XXII5?
    One more question, if I go for either of those updates, will I be able to update the i7500 once Samsung release officially an update using NPS?

    Thanks ;)

    id got for ii5 but use jzip to delete the cache.img from the tar so it doesnt put german settings on there

    if you ever need to update to an official o2 csc then you can flash back to ii4 using odin so then nps sees the rom as official
    the files can be obtained from the stickies
    personally though if you are staying on a standard rom then stay with ii4 and get a 3rd party kb like touch pal or better keyboard
    ii4 is an ok rom

    touchpal has disappeared from the market :/

    Its a shame, as the laggy HTC keyboard from the galaxhero release is getting quite annoying :)

    Edit: just installed "Better Keyboard", well worth the $2.99 imo, I can actually type at a decent rate now :D

    Yeah, I couldn't find it on the AndroMarket, but I installed Better Keyboard along with some cool skins and I'm so pleased to finally got rid of that orange weird Samsung kb :rolleyes:

    i have the ShapeWriter keyboard on my phone. it's expensive as far as apps on the market go ($9.99!), but i love it. i've tried the Samsung, HTC, Better Keyboard, and Touchpal keyboard, and the ShapeWriter is by far the best imo
