    I'm used to keyboards w/ , . ? ! & in the same buttons as the letters. Just long press a letter to get a ! or ? or & etc.
    Anyone use another keyboard?
    I'm tired of hitting the: ?123 button.

    Swift Key has a slide type function currently in beta. It's gonna be sweet!
    They call it flow.

    This was my biggest complaint with ICS. I use SwiftKey now and love it. Not quite as accurate as the stock keyboards (at least not my DI2 and Eris) but definitely better than the stock ICS keyboard on the Maxx HD.

    SwiftKey with flow is out of beta. It's available in play store. I think it's on sale now for half price. I think also there is a trial version.

    I'm wondering how many people got the "Swype" keyboard uploaded on their phones. I think it was installed during a system update a while ago.

    The swype keboard seems to be a little more refined than the standard android keyboard and is able to perform the functions the poster was looking for in the first post of this thread.

    His only complaint was not being able to get to the comma and other punctuation without selecting the numbers key.

    And I told him how to pull up all the punctuation symbols without having to change to the numbers keyboard.

    Just long push the period . and a blue box filled with all the other punctuation marks will pop up, and then just slide to the one you need.

    Agreed. You can flow, you can type normally, you can do both, and all with great predictions and corrections.

    If you want a good free one, can't go wrong with Touchpal.

    Thanks for all the replies
    I like a keyboard that has a # or & or @ or + or = or $ when you long press a key on the keyboard. I don't like going to another screen to select a symbol or any number. The SwiftKey 3 is the best. That's how every keyboard on every phone should be.
    I guess when you go from an HTC to a Samsung to a Motorola you find out what features you like from each phone.
    I'm loving this RAZR Maxx HD, but it's not perfect & not worth the $300 price tag.
    The complaints I have with this phone, I've never had those or any complaints with blackberry. But bberry is behind the times rite now. Can't wait to try out the new model coming out soon.
    Anyway, this phone with the SwiftKey app is almost perfect. Now only if the camera was better.
