new pulse mini

5 posts in this topic

hi all,

just got a pulse mini yesterday, its my first ever android phone and whilst im not usually confused by technology (im an it engineer by trade) this has me flummoxed

for one i absolutely hate the keyboard... why have qwerty on something so small? anyway i go to try and change the settings to use a 12 key keypad (like a standard nokia for example) but does it work? no... also the bloody word prediction, i type you, it auto chooses your, to - top, and so many other words, i dont need to be told what word to use on the iphone, blackberry and this phone is no different....

So... my question, can i actually remove this god awful feature... in settings -> locale and keyboard -> touchpal -> word prediction is off and layout in portrait is set to 12 key phone pad, but still no dice

now i vaguely remember changing the keyboard to andoird.... but i cant remember where or how i did it :rolleyes:

so if anyone can help please let me know.

ive looked at the droid guide but i cant seem to find much about keyboards.

cheers in advance

Bob

You change the keyboard by longpressing a text box, then input method (i think), If you have downloaded a new keyboard, you'll have to go to settings and enable it first.

downlaod better keyboard you will love it. Its so worth it .

I've been using the "Über Keyboard" with my Pulse Mini for months now - its well worth trying the free version and seeing if that gives you all the options you need.
