I just bought a Cygnett Bluetooth keyboard for $29.95 at Frys Electronics today that pairedd perfectly with my SGT (T-Mo) and works perfectly well.
I dont see any reason why it would not work with all SGT's.
The thing I like most is it is small enough to fit in the Pelican case that I have for my SGT. I just cut the foam in half, removed the foam for the keyboard and now have a 2 layer foam cushion for the keyboard and SGT.

Well Verizon apparently went into the tab and deleted some bluetooth drivers so it will pair with devices but will not connect. I was just wondering if someone out there got a keyboard to work with their Verizon tab? If they did I would buy it in a heartbeat. Thanks though for replying

Sorry about that, I had not read any of the Verizon BT threads since I am with T-Mo.
I just dont get why service providers do this... If the manufacturer enables something, leave it alone.

I agree 100% my friend. I'm hoping someone will find something that will work. Thanks again.

I posted on the Verizon Community Forum and a Moderator said they were aware of the "issue" and were looking into it. The post is now gone. The thread may disappear too. It is a shame that they decided to remove the feature. I hope a solution is found too.

Check Brando's website out. They have a bluetooth keyboard/leather case combo for $59. Not sure it will work for the Verizon Tab.

It will not. There's no HID driver. Without that, no bluetooth keyboard will work.

If it's due to a lack of drivers, would it not be possible to just copy the drivers from a model that has them?

Who knows? I'm just guessing it's the drivers, perhaps Verizon completely blocked the functionality at a higher level like they did with the dialer. Could be any of a million things and, frankly, $80 for a docking keyboard I could be using in an hour sounds like much less of a hassle.
