I apologize if this has been addressed already, but I searched as best I could and was unable to find anything on it. This is partly about the virtual keyboard and partly about the update.
When I first got the phone I tried all 3 keyboards and found that I didn't care for either of the virtual ones. So I had it set where those 2 were just kept off all the time. I'm not sure if this was the reason, but I noticed slightly better battery life after I did this because that was one less app. running. Ever since I downloaded the update though, it won't stay turned off. I go into the settings to uncheck it, but if I kill some apps. or turn the phone off and back on, it is running again. Before this update it didn't matter if I used a task killer or turned the phone off, the virtual keyboard never came back on. I really feel this is what is causing my battery to drain faster now after the update since most people have mentioned improved battery life. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone has any information on how to fix this.
If not, is there a way to remove the update? I've seen all of the things it is supposed to improve and personally, I had no real issues with any of them before. That's probably because I didn't really use most of it enough to care, but that isn't really important.
Thanks for any help that is given.
