I've tried several keyboard apps, and Swype is working best for me For some reason I can't get Swype to remain the default. It switches back to the Android keyboard whenever I reboot the phone, and also whenever it seems to feel like it. While I have the ear of the knowledgeable, I have other difficulties. I love K-9 Mail, but stopped using it because it was becoming obvious that my outgoing mail problem was going to be a long back and forth session via Google group with the developer. I switched back to the standard Android mail client, and I'm still having problems getting my e-mails to actually send. I'm not even getting an error telling me the e-mail hasn't been sent, or that there's a network error, nothing. The e-mail just never gets to where it was going, although it otherwise appears that it's working fine. Another configuration problem that is eluding me, is why does the "check this box to use this program as the default" option doesn't work. It always asks no matter if you check the box or not. I know there's some apps that help with maintaining your preferences, and I have tried one before, but it only worked in some instances. I want to get these little annoyances fixed once and for all. Your help is very much appreciated.
