try xda developers, i got mine from there. Look for the forum for the Trinity and then search the forum for phonepad. That should do the trick.

You'll open a can of worms here, input methods are really tricky to get working on th m700. I think i've tried em all and at the moment i'm running pocketcm keyboard (which i only managed to get working by running it through pocketcm full).

You might spend weeks trying to get one to work and to stay as the default too.

Good luck!!!

I would be interested in any solutions people have for getting input methods to load and even stay as teh default. I love Tengo Thumb, it works for a while after a hard reset but wont stay as default. Then after a few more days it just wont load at all. Shame cos i dont like the default keyboard at all.

The only reliable answer is to flash the device with another ROM :(

The ROM on the SPV M700 has been modded by Orange to include a number of custom processes which deplete the available resources. These are in the main ROM, so can't even be aborted by limiting the Ext_ROM installations.

I did find SIPChange enabled me to occasionally use Tengo but it was generally short lived. Updating to a custom WM6 ROM sorted it out, but isn't an option if you want to preserve your Orange warranty :D

Well i would consider that. I remember removing all the orange cabs on my old m600. It was a right pain loading all th einternet and mms settings again. I still have 6 months left on my contract so dont want to brick my phone. Willing to give it a try tho!

I was hopinh there might be a registry key/hack I could do to switch Tengo to default? (sorry dont know a huge amount about the registry)
