thanks for your work on this CvvB. I missed having the VKB available when I meta-doctored my Pre+ to 2.1, and continued missing it when I got my Pre3. I love having a real keyboard when typing a long e-mail or text, but it seems silly to have to slide open the phone just to type a word or two.
I know there are some bugs and limitations, but so far this works well for my purposes. The alert sound when opening the VKB is annoying, but livable.
One usage note: if you're typing numbers/symbols, you should ensure that you return the keyboard to alpha mode before dismissing it. otherwise when you bring it up again the keyboard will think it's typing letters, but the OS will see numbers/symbols. the remedy if you do get in the sitation is to put the keyboard back in number mode and then dismiss it again. this will get the keyboard and OS back in sync.
