    Pthang. I would suggest posting this in the forum that corresponds to your phone. This is a droid x forum and you will get a better response there. I would move your post but I don't know which lg optimus you have.

    I've moved it over here, Metro PCS is the Optimus M I believe - maybe you can get the help needed by other Optimus M users.

    I'm not 100% sure, but if I understand your question - switching keyboards is kinda easy.

    Go to anyplace where you enter text - say - like you're going to do an SMS.

    Now, in the box where you enter text - long press on that. If you have more than keyboard installed, it will pop up a choice to allow you to reset the default to the choices on your phone.

    Hope this helps!

  4. Have we found out if this works? I have a Droid X (why I joined AndroidForum.com) :p but my fiancee has the Optimus M and I'd like to know if this works in case she ever runs into this problem.

    I know, this is the Droid section :rolleyes: I'm just asking in case anyone ever posts the results.

    Same as EarlyMon suggest. Long press in the box where you enter text, it will give you a choice of input method. Choose what you want to use. That's it. I had lost my swype and started freaking out until I figured it out. Hope it works for you.

  6. I came across this thread while browsing androidforum and was just looking into how this problem would/could be solved in case it happened to my fiancee. I've copied Ish05 & EarlMon's suggestion for that other person & saved it to my computer if this issue ever appears on her LG Optimus.

    Thanks :D
