I have had a slider phone for years and could text super fast. Then I switched to an Eris where I had the option of using the qwerty keyboard on landscape OR I could hold it upright and use the numeric keyboard with T9 like I did on my slider. I always held it upright and was very happy. I was having reception issues with my eris so I traded it for a Moto Droid. Is there an option for the numeric type of keyboard becuase it takes me friggin forever to type a text.
How can I set numeric-only soft keyboard option for a text field? When I set the input-type to "number" it brings a soft keyboard which is actually a alpha-numeric one but already switched to numeric mode. What I want is a pure numeric soft keyboard with big numbers (no alphabets at all). I've already seen this in other applications and but don't know how to do it.
I have a TextView (or MultiAutoCompleteTextView) field where user can enter both numbers (0 - 9) and characters (a -z, what ever).But I would like to set the numeric soft-keyboard as default. I want the numeric keyboard appearing first, but user can press the [ABC] button and enter what ever character he wants. Is this possible?
I am developing an android application where we are using WebView to display Web page being served from Web Server. Everything is working fine except with the problem that when i am using the soft keyboard and switched to numeric key entry and move from first field to next field, the keyboard layout automatically changed to alphanumeric.
Is there any way using which i can pull up virtual keyboard in numeric mode only when i need to enter numbers only?

I am trying to do something that I thought would be simple, yet I still haven't found the right approach. I have a Edit Text field that should only accept unsigned decimal entries. Using android:input Type="number Decimal" in my layout xml file achieves this, however the soft keyboard that is raised with this input Type is the standard keyboard but just uses the alternate view with the number row on top. This is far from ideal for a field that only allows numbers. A much better soft keyboard for numeric entry is the "phone" one. It has all of the numbers and a decimal. Perfect!! Well, except that for the life of me I cannot figure out how to use both the phone keyboard AND allow only numeric entry. I've tried everything I can think of but if I use the phone soft keyboard then the input field also allows things like "(" and any of the other symbols available on that keyboard. Is there any way to get the nice big numeric buttons of the phone keyboard along with only allowing decimal entry?

And I am greeted by a screen: Enter SPC password and the buttons Verify and Cancel under the window. It will only take a numeric code and I tried a few (last four of my phone #, my PIN for my voicemail.) I have a MotoDroid with the Froyo 2.2 forced update. Now knowing that:
1. What IS the SPC password? 2. What does the ##Program show? 3. Anything else I should know before I try (IF I should try?) this again?
My wife and I both have Moto Droids. She has been having a problem where, occasionally, people that she sends text message to tell her that that the message arrives with non alpha/numeric characters and instead are either (a) blank, or (b) filled with special characters and the original message is not sent.
I found a thread that says blank messages may be caused by draft items, but nothing about special characters.
From the XDA forum: Link to app page = [APP][ROOT/Keyboard] Keyboard Manager - Dual keyboard: Portrait/landscape switch - xda-developers
Keyboard Manager allows you to customize what keyboard (input method) appear on input based on your phone orientation. It displays the keyboards you have enabled on your android device, and let you select one per orientation (landscape/portrait). As your phone switch orientation, the app automatically switch the keyboard.
Requirements: - Rooted android device (app was tested on Samsung captivate 2.1) - Root Explorer app, or similar app that allows you to edit the permissions of a file.
To install: 1- Download the app (KeyboardManager.apk) on your device sdcard. 2- Using Root Explorer, move the apk file to /system/app 3- Using Root Explorer, edit the file permissions like below: -- User: 'Read/Write' checked --Group: 'Read' checked --Others: 'Read' checked 4- Exit Root Explorer
The app should be visible in your launcher as 'Keyboard Manager'
Update: - Added option to disable notification icon -' start on boot' feature is disabled because it's not yet complete and tested... Sorry for the confusion
Bugs: -On certain applications (i.e: Messaging on Samsung Captivate), the input window occasionally freeze on orientation switch. Exiting the app, and resuming should fix it.
While texting on the full keyboard, why did they force us to use the exit keyboard(lower left) icon instead of oh say making that one the SEND icon and once pressed have it auto kick you back to the main text screen or put a send icon somewhere along the text screen itself like they did with shorter keyboard? I still don't see how this was overlooked.
A few days ago, my phone got the lastest 4.3 update. Since then, I've noticed that the texting keyboard is different. I am not a fan. You're now forced to hit the swooping arrow to skip auto-correct, which is my biggest complaint.
I have a terrible feeling that i got the wrong phone when choosing the xperia x10... So to make it a tiny bit better..can someone PLEASEE help me, how can i turn off the sound of the keyboard while texting....i tried everything but i just cannot find it.
The screen on the X10 mini pro is pretty small, but why make it even smaller when texting by taking up the bottom portion of the screen with the language of the keyboard? I do not envisage myself ever needing to change the keyboard language, well except for when I have changed it by mistake, by accidently hitting the language bar that shouldnt be there?
Sometimes when I 'Tap to compose' after reading a text message the keyboard will slide up but will not allow me to type and the text area is grayed out.I can press the keys on the keyboard nothing will show on the screen.Any ideas?
I'm finally going to make the jump over to android from winmo this week after years of loyalty but the one thing that could sway my decision is the ability to do t9 texting. yeah i know there are all these new fangled ways to text like swype but imo nothing beats the simplicity of a 9 button predictive layout I played with my brother's incredible which had it but i'm unsure if that was an HTC thing or not. So are all android keyboards the same with the same option and if not does anyone know if the X will have t9 text?
The vibrate feature for my text and email alerts no longer functions. It is just completely silent (ringer is off, but phone is set to vibrate, not silent). I have the setting for Also Vibrate on Notification checked so my setting are right, it seems. The vibration works for incoming calls, but not my alerts... I did have locale installed which is the only app I can imagine messing with it. I have uninstalled Locale but the problem persists.
So i have my contacts in my phone, fine and dandy, when i first got my phone i accidently synched facebook contacts with my phone, meaning every person on my facebook with a phone # on their fb was imported into my phone, you know as well as i do, 90% of our fb friends arent phone contact friends, so i unsynched fb..now the issue im having is this. If i go into messaging, and in the To: feild i start to type a persons name in my contact to text them, for some people it doesnt show up, altho if u go into my contacts their name is clearly there. The other issue, is when i start to type names, it still brings up peoples names and numbers from FB altho their contact isnt saved in my phone..so everytime i wanna text someone i hasve to goto contacts, find them, clickhold and select text contact..kind of annoying for mass texts ect....
It seems like every now and then when I'm texting my 3g service goes out and is now 1x.. i live in a small town so do you think this is normal? it has been doing this since i got it. I heard handcent is really good. is that more bugles then the default texting app on the droid?
I think I read it on here a while back, but can't find the post, about setting up an autoreply for texting. Something along the lines of "I am currently driving and cannot read nor respond to your message," that you turn on and off like an email "Out of Office" reply. Anyone know if there is an app that does this?
Is there a way to have a pic. show up in place of the android dude when texting?
Like it shows the other person's pic next to their text when msging but when you reply it shows only a cartoon image of the android dude for you. Is there a way to change that picture? I can't seem to locate it.
