    In my search for a keyboard that types what I want instead of what it wants, I came across hackers keyboard. Sony warns me that this keyboard may steal that which I type. Is this a real worry with this keyboard?

    That's a standard warning for any keyboard you install. Hacker's Keyboard is just a name. It's named that way because it contains functions like the F1-F12 keys and other keys you find on a full PC keyboard, which incidentally, hackers use. As if normal people don't. But if you install Swiftkey or TouchPal keyboards, you still get that warning. Keyboard apps have functions that let them save the words you type for predictive purposes. Eventually they'll be able to predict whole sentences for you. It comes down on how much you trust the developers that they won't use what you type. I can't say for Hackers Keyboard, but I do believe that Swiftkey and TouchPal keyboards are from trustworthy developers. I've used them a lot over the years.

    Are there any that do not have an auto correct feature (there is apparently no way to turn AC off on this phone)? It would also be nice to have the keyboard at the top of the screen. Also, your avatar is extremely disturbing.

    You turn off autocorrect in the keyboard settings. And I do not know of any keyboard that put it at the top of the screen. That just seems so unnnatural, that the keyboard be above what you are typing.
