    Hi All,

    Is there an app or a way to get a numeric key pad (e.g. "2/abc, 3/def...")? I've seen a few other threads on here but they're a little over my head! lol.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Thanks... although, it's not quite what I'm looking for. It seems to be qwerty keyboard(s), but I'm looking for a numeric keypad (1/ans, 2/abc, 3/def, 4/ghi...)

    I've seen something on the And.Market and don't mind paying for apps, but only buy Sterling(

    The HTC_IME keyboard from Jonasl on XDA developers does qwerty/compact qwerty and T9 Numeric. It is actually pretty straightforward to install and is free. Below is the user guide I followed:

    Installing the HTC Keyboard On Your X10 - SE-NSE Forums

    There is a variation on this on XDA developers by a chap called Gimpsta which I think is the one referred to earlier in this thread. Its the same as above but gives you the option to skin it (ie customise the colours of the background/keys etc) Link follows:-

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=654179

    Its worth ten minutes of your time to give it a go, its free and its pretty darn good. I tried the HandCent keyboard which was rubbish and another one called Swiftkey which was rubbish too in comparison to the HTC one.

    The HTC_IME keyboard from Jonasl seems nice, worked well when I had a little play, still prefer the QWERTY option tho.
