    Sorry, if this has been posted elsewhere, but I found something out about the stock Android keyboard that I would like to share with you all. In the portrait mode if you slide your finger up from the keyboard and two extra rows of number keys and punctuation pops up, allowing you to enter in a single character w/o having to switch to that page.

    I am on a Froyo rom so not sure if 2.1 has this ability.

    Hope this makes someones day!

    Hmm... just got my DroidX & updated to 2.2 and I can't get this to work. I tried both the multitouch & swype keyboards. What am I doing wrong - or does the DX not support?
