    Is the Samsung keyboard that comes with the Reverb replaceable without having to root the phone, etc....?

    I use Big Buttons. The stock keyboard is way too small for me.

    I'm a Swiftkey 3 fan, although I had to switch to the 'Small' mode in Portrait because my thumb kept hitting the B and N buttons instead of the spacebar, which was annoying. It's great at predicting though so hitting the exact letters in Small mode isn't important.

    I'm a fan of Thumb Keyboard on my Acer tablet, but prefer Swiftkey Tablet to that. One thing I wish Swiftkey would implement that Thumb has is the tab/next key and also an optional top row of custom macro buttons to paste frequently used strings of text like email addresses, names, etc.

    Swiftkey 3 is a big improvement. I'm impressed so far.

    It isn't really swype, I installed the beta swype, the secret cursor keys mode is not as good as it was on my Optimus V. I really want a keyboard with arrow keys and text select mode.

    Touchpal has an edit mode with arrow keys and select. I might suggest downloading the older version, as version 5 in the market asks for even more permissions.

    Try Go keyboard. I'm still on the opv till taxes, but Go is the only keyboard I use. You can add the cursor keys on the bottom or there's a button that let's u use arrow keys and also text select and all that. Tons of features, just download and play around with it.
