Your problem is in fact really easy!
By default, Karvana removed the xT9 from his ROM... and left the standard phone keyboard layout (as your reported).
You need to install the xT9 .cab that is available at the xda-developers forum. Then, copy the .cab to your phone and run.
It will install the xT9 dictonaries to many languages. In Notepad (or in WORD), press FN+SPACE to access the xT9 properties and select the ENGLISH language. You just need than to edit the keyboard layout (follow the threads here and at the xda-developers forum to do so) to match the special keys to the ENGLISH version. Basically you copy the keyboard layout to your coputer, change the characters in the file and copy back to your phone.
If you select the PORTUGUESE language, it will work really fine... BUT, it will not function the SHIFT/CAPS key. And for that, my friend, I did not found any solution yet. You will be able to write but without capital letters.
To sum up, just install the xT9, select ENGLISH, edit the keyboard layout and you are done. and wait until I (or some one else) report a solution to the "CAPS missfunction".

I think my problem is a little bit more complicated...
I have a Portuguese-Brazilian Version of HTC-S621 wich is now running WM6.1 from Kavana (english) and the keyboard is crazy!
The FN key is not working at all. The layout has ç in J, º in K and ª in L.
The numeric keypad is acting like a standard cell phone keypad, wich means that if you press 2 (for example) several times, the letters A,B or C shows (one for each time you press). If you press 3, the letters D,E,F shows. If you press 4, the letters G,H,I shows.. and so on... so, it´s working as a standard cell phone keyboard. Other keys than the numeric keypad are working except for the non working FN key.
Can you help in any way? I tried to get a picture but i think it´s not sharp, so, if i can help you, please, let me know.
Thanks in advance.
