    I like using the vertical keyboard so that I can type with one hand. Does anyone know of an app that will give me bigger keys on the vertical keyboard? I downloaded Big Buttons Keyboard and it doesnt work at all....I have no clue how to access it. I download it and it just sits there...it doesnt give me the option to open it.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    ***SORRY THIS SHOULD BE UNDER THE APPS CATEGORY...NOT THEMES****

    to use big buttons keyboard you have to go into "menu/settings/language and keyboard" and disable "android keyboard" and enable "big buttons keyboard" youll probably have some options for BBK in there as well

    though im not a fan of BBK, i prefer better keyboard, its not free like you want, but is awesome

    You don't need to disable android keyboard. You do need to enable any other keyboards you've downloaded, but you can switch back and forth by long-pressing on the text box you're typing in and selecting Input Method. This way you can go back-and-forth fairly easily if desired.

    Does better keyboard have bigger buttons on the vertical keyboard? Im looking at the description and all that sounds good but I just need bigger keys so that I can text and email with using my vertical keyboard. How do you grade the vertical keyboard?

    the portrait keyboard in better keyboard is the best...it uses "suretype" and im coming from a bb pearl after four years so this thing is awesome for me...
    if you dont know what suretype is...its essentially two letters per key to use with either predictive olr multi tap...def recommended

    Big Buttons Keyboard is an absolute essential download for Vertical. You can test it out but I am waiting for the updated version so when it goes in horizontal it will default back to the normal virtual. Right now the buttons are just as big in horizontal but an update is coming, if not done already. I gotta check soon. Must have app though once the update is ready and you can always use it now and then default it back to normal in settings when typing in horizontal virtual (or just use the physical when in horizontal).

    get the HTC keyboard. set it on compact qwerty and then just one tap the buttons. the predictive type is good and will figure out the rest.

    First smart phone, first post :) ... just did a search for a better keyboard with bigger keys (want to see if it will make my Commando usable for my disabled girl friend) and wanted to know what others are using since it looks like Better Keyboard is no longer avail.

    Thanks for the forum and your help
