This is quite an annoyance, which i don't think is limited to the G2 as I previously noticed this on another Chinaphone running JB. Then I had worked around this by using the Hackers Keyboard from Google Play that had a setting to pop out the soft keyboard even when physical keyboard is present.
What can I do to have the physical keyboard not be enabled by default? (supposing that unpairing the BT keyboard resolves the issue, I would prefer not having to do this).
Thanks in advance for your help.
