    There has been plenty of discussion regarding the different keyboards and ways to input text on your phone so I thought I'd make a poll to see what the community uses.

    Let me know if there was any option I missed and maybe a mod could add it.

    Also, I realize some phone's Stock keyboard is not the standard Android keyboard, so consider the Stock option whatever keyboard is your phone's default.

    Need to be able to pick physical keyboard & another one for people with a physical keyboard.

    However, I use physical keyboard 99% of the time. I can't type on the regular D1 soft keyboard. But I just upgraded to Swiftkey. This might change me over to 99% Swiftkey.

    I don't have a phone with Swype preinstalled, but I'm guessing its not the default keyboard that gets enabled, so I'd choose the Swype option.

    I probably over complicated things with the options...I just wanted to see how many people use swype, how many people use a third party keyboard thats not swype, and how many people just use what the default.

    Me too! I make a new one from scratch whenever I change themes or grow bored with the one I've got installed.
