    At some point early on in my SF ownership, I accidentally pushed something that gave me a keyboard and word prediction that I like SO MUCH more than the little black box word prediction with Swype. I didn't download a 3rd party keyboard or anything. Problem is, I've somehow hit something again that has brought the black box popup word prediction and a different keyboard back. I've messed with every combination I can think of in Language and Keyboard, but can't seem to get the other keyboard back.

    The keyboard I currently have is the one that has the letters and symbols on the same key. The one I like has just the letters on the keys and a symbol button to push to get just the symbols. The word recognition I want has a bar right about where you type that gives you suggestions and you can touch the suggestion you want and it will insert (it has the most likely suggestion in red, I think).

    I make so many more typing mistakes with the black box prediction/current keyboard. Can someone tell me how to get the other way back?

    Press and hold in any typing area, then select your other input method. I would have to assume your were using the default "Android Keyboard"

    Simtech -- Thanks so much! That was it. . . and also explains how I changed it back without realizing it. I'm a happy gal to have that sorted out.
