*SOLVED: SEE BELOW* so i just picked up the htc dream in canada. of course rogers is stupid and removed the soft keyboard even though the OS is technically 1.5 No big deal, I can just install chompSMS and steel right? I did, and I can't see any keyboards. Is there some option I am missing? Is it possible this rogers version of the phone blocks all soft keyboards in apps? chomp I just dont see anything other than the flashing cursor for me to type in. steel loads to a black page with this 3/4 circle inside a square in the bottom right corner of the screen. I can type in to google using my physical keyboard, but then this black transparent overlay covers the page and the 3/4 circle thing is still there. can anyone confirm that I don't have to do anything special to view the keyboards in these apps? If rogers has somehow gimped this i will be mighty angry... and I guess next question is if anyone knows if it's safe for me to switch to the US cupcake... but that's another topic. edit: worth noting that the Setup Wizard under About Phone still gets you to try the the soft keyboard... of course us canadians just click in the field and nothing happens... oh rogers, when will you ever learn. EDIT 2: SOLVED! See my last post below... there is a VERY easy way to install the keyboard into rogers dreams.
