    I was looking for keyboards on the marketplace and came across the gingerbread. I installed the free version and when I went to settings to switch to it it said that it can collect personal data and credit card info. Perhaps I am just paranoid but does the gingerbread keyboard just collect it to phone or something more "sinister"?

    It's just a warning that pops up for every keyboard, all of the popular keyboards from the market are safe to use

    Thank you. I figured as much but I just wanted to make sure.

    I changed the settings and I can't get the settings to apply. Any thoughts? I did save the settings.

    I have tried restarting the phone to see if that would work but it did not.

    Perhaps you should uninstall and reinstall the keyboard? Maybe that'll help.

    Are you running any ROMs or are you rooted? Some ROMs have what are called "sticky options" issues, meaning your settings don't "stick" or stay, they revert back. If thats the case, let me know what ROM you have, and I can try to walk you through help. If not, I would try the uninstall method teanpa posted. If you aren't 100% on that keyboard btw, I absolutely love Swype, and it's free. It's a little different from what you might be used to, but once you get the hang of it, you'll probably love it too.
