    I have downloaded both SwiftKey and the Droid-X Multi touch Keyboards. In both cases, I have changed the settings in Language and Keyboard to pick that keyboard - and when I go to email, text or internet, the keyboard never shows up?

    Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? How do I enable either one?

    Thanks, YB

    Hold down the black screen in an email or text and select input method and the ones you downloaded should be listed there

    You have to long press in any text input box and a menu will come up. Choose "input method" and you will see a list of installed keyboards. Choose the one you want, and you're all set.

    Edit: Looks like brad beat me to it. Haha
