    The stock keyboard definately needs to be replaced.

    What are people experiencing as the best keyboards for this size screen that are "FREE"?

    Thanks in advance..

    I use shapewriter, you can google it and you'll find the .apk file.

    I also use the swype from my rooted Moment and it works fine. Not free, but....

    I paid for Swift keyboard, and may pay for ultra keyboard in the future...

    Jen here is a link to another forum with some discussion about the recent Over The Air update. Read through it and there is a post with all the things the update does. It will come automatically to your phone, within the next 24-36 hrs.

    Ahhh, thank you. Looks like it gives us Swype, which is cool, and fixes exchange bugs, which I don't use. No news on fixing the SD care issue huh?
