    I went from a Samsung Relay with slide out keyboard to this V10. I really love this phone, but greatly miss a slide out keyboard. The more I write emails and texts, the more I hate typing on screen. Every sentence I type adds an 'n' or 'b' or "." between several words. I have tried various settings for the keyboard layout, but keep having this problem. I type mostly in landscape. Can anyone recommend a better keyboard layout or app. Now, to the right of my space bar I have the . and , (period & comma). It would be great to have backspace key moved up and have a second shift key, this one on right side.

    I have to use a stylus. Ya know women, nails. LOL Actually like using the stylus you can use the swipe easier.

    Has anyone tried Triangle Keyboard? There are only 2 comments so far so I imagine it is not so popular, or is new.

    I too use a stylus and have for several years. The tips of my fi ngers are broad and I've reached a point of almost being able to touch type with the stylus. Try different ones - get them from Amazon where most are inexpensive. I favor the Birugear for the V10 - they provide enough reistance but no too much.

    I've been using Perfect Keyboard Pro for several years. They offer many layouts, different themes, and every option I've ever wanted. I tried the LG for the V10 and it's an ok keyboard. But we're using Android because we want to choose exactly what we want - so try different keyboards.
