    I need to type in both Swedish and English and the one thing I miss from my "other" phone is the easy switch of the keyboards while texting. I could text in both languages just by touching a button. With the Galaxy I have to go out of sms, go into settings and change the typing language. Is there an application or an installation to have multiple keyboards? Granted I could just type in English with the Swedish keyboard but then the spell check is in Swedish :rolleyes:

    That is good, but I really want something that changes just the keyboard language while I am using it. It is a setting in the iphone (Settings and go to General → Keyboard → International Keyboards) and you can pick which keyboards you use then, while you are using the keyboard for whatever, you can just switch between them by hitting a global key on the keyboard.

    also, if you have multiple keyboards installed, if you long press in the test field that you are typing in, a pop up apears to ask what input method to use, you can then switch keyboards mid typing.

    This one just has a button on the keyboard to switch, which is what I wanted. I tend to mix my languages as I am typing. Pressing and holding will slow me down:)
