Smile Sense Keyboard (or other T9) on TG01

The TG01 is definitely a bittersweet pill. For its omissions, it has added features... for its extra functionality, stuff seems to be left out. Does one balance the other? In my opinion, unfortunately not... as the most useful things seem to be the things missing. In particular, a good T9 / Predictive Keyboard Input!

So - whilst I'm mostly happy with the standard WM 6.5 UI (with SPB of course) - when it comes to texts and emails, this handset is, as it stands, as good as useless, whereas on my old TouchHD, the 'Phone Keypad' allowed me to text and email with ease.

So what about the HTC Sense 'Phone Keypad' or other integrated T9 input system? Has anybody tried any 3rd Party Input devices? As the first paragraph said, something 'cool' in place of something 'usable' - I can't text or email with the device, but I *can* plug in a full size USB keyboard. Great!!

All opinions and options greatly appreciated. Let's make this TG01 something really good to use!!

Well I did not try a 3rd Party Keyboard but I like the TouchPal Keyboard very much. You can choose in the settings the T9 input and it works very well for me.

TouchPal... right - I'll have to find that one and give it a workout.

Any others to mention? URLs / Screenshots would be useful too... this could be the definitive 'TG01 Keyboard Replacement' thread! Ha.

Having tried TouchPal, I, too am an advocate to it now, and am already considering PURCHASING it!! So it must be good, because I never part with cash for software!

Yes, in my opionen it's far the best virtual keyboard for Windows Mobile

So, go and purchase it. It's worth the money.
