    swype for eris is the only way to go IMO. Google it and watch the video to see what its all about before you download. BTW, there are two versions out now, one that is approx 2mb and one that is approx 7mb. The larger file has more options and is overall better IMO. Search Swype HVGA.apk for the download.

    Does the better keyboard app have any known issues? like sowing down the phone or causing a lot of FC's?

    No not that I have ever heard of.....I love Better Keyboard, but I can't say anything about how it works on the Eris...it might not even be available on the Eris if the app is made for only versions higher than what the Eris has ya know? Just tell your wife to do a search in the Market for keyboards...whatever will work for the Eris will show up

    I tried Better Keyboard and found it worse than the Eris keyboard, ymmv.

    Someone else mentioned Swype, but it's a memory hog. SlideIt and Shapewriter are pretty good.

    I have been running Swype for a couple of days now and absolutely love it. I'm not noticing a memory hit.
