I'm really missing Phone Pad from my HTC devices that allows T9 input... does anyone know of any good alternatives?

I've even tried to get Phone Pad running on the A701, no dice yet... ;)

Success! ;)

I can confirm it's possible, although somewhat challenging...

Hi Paul,

How did you get it to work? I tried but it was unsuccessful.

I have a working .cab file for this (intellipad) if anyone wants it. It has just installed on my a701 and works great.

Intellipad v1.0

Enjoy

If anyone knows how to make it remember my word entries after a soft reset, I would appreciate it?

Transfer it to the phone wherever you want then click on it on the phone. It will then install & you can remove the .cab file from your phone when it's done.

Copy cab to the phone using activesync etc..

Open filemanager and click the file, this will start the installation process.

Thanks murf62,

I installed it but it still doesn't work. It's like my phonepad .cab file. When I select Intellipad as the input method instead of keyboard, nothing happens, it stays in keyboard. Is there anything I have to do first?

Nope, I just selected intellipad then did a soft reset for good luck. Works fine for me.
Can someone else try it on an a701 to make sure I'm not the exception here?

How do you exactly set intellipad as the input method? Maybe I did it wrong?

It comes up in the list at the bottom. Click the little arrow next to the keyboard icon as if you were changing to transcriber.

That's exactly what I do, but in mine nothing happens, it stays in keyboard.
Really strange, maybe I'll give it another try the next time I hard reset mine.

Thx again for your help.

I had to soft reset after installing it to get it to work on mine. Is intellipad in the list or does it just not appear there?

Same thing happens to me sometimes an my A701. Sometimes IntelliPad works fine. Others I click it but it just stays on the keyboard.

If I reset it works sometimes but not others. It's getting really annoying cos I'm so used to my MDA Compact II.
