    Is it possible to use a different virtual keyboard for the search function vs other apps? Right now swype is my default virtual keyboard, but it is not good for searching names and stuff. Can I change to use different keyboard just for when I hit the search button on droid? How do I do it.

    I cant seem to figure out even how to switch input method using swype. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    If you long-press on the input area you'll get a dialog that asks you what method you want for your input. Just choose Android keyboard.
