    Just wondering if this has to be used?
    I can't get in with it as I find the space bar too small.
    Is there anyway to use a different board?
    You'll have to excuse my total newbie-ness, I'm new to android having been using iPhones for the last 4 years!

    Yes, you can download any number of keyboards from the play store. Personally I use Swype.

    I've tried several and I find the A.I.type keyboard the best. It's larger and very intuitive. It's free for a short period of time and then you have to decide if it's worth $3.99. I think it is.

    Try out the free versions of Swiftkey, Kii, Thumb keyboards. And then decide for your favorite. I got the paid versions of these three and they are good.

    Initially I liked the stock keyboard... I thought no need to Swype or Swift Key which I've enjoyed on other phones and my HP Touchpad running CM. I think I'm about to download and install those. The LG word correction and some other behaviors are beginning to bug me.

    Ooooo. Liking the SwiftKey keyboard a lot. Seems much more powerful than before.

    update: 12/3... Oh, I find that SwiftKey has some not so beautiful behaviors too. Maybe I'll try Swype on the device next.

    I was a BIG swiftkey fan. I am coming from the SGS4, The Samsung keyboard was fine. Got totally used to having the numbers on the top row - without having to hit the Number key first.

    Pretty much HATE the LG Keyboard - then I tried Swiftkey again - and (Unless I'm missing it - which is entirely possibly) does not have the row of numbers on top.

    I no have A.I., Google, Kii, and Swiftkey. I like A.I., but can't figure out how to swipe.

    I just checked the Swype site - looks like it doesn't have the row of numbers either.

    Any advice? TIA!!

    Been using the Swiftkey Beta and has number row on top which i liked on LG. Recommend Swiftkey to anyone.

    New update for SwiftKey beta with emoji and number row!

    Actually - after downloading that - the regular version works also - user error - I didn't realize that I needed to long-press to get the numbers.

    Thanks much!

    Thanks. I've tried a couple But they seemed a bit slow and sluggish compared to the stock LG board.
    I'll give the swift key beta a try.

    I've used Swype since I got my Eris but I'll have to look at SwiftKey now.

    I'm using Google the swift key beta which is good!

    Another question.
    Whenever I put a smiley into a text. I mean an emoticon it converts the sms to a MMS which isn't ideal. Is there a way to stop this. Such as on the iPhone e it sends them as sms
