    Hello, from the last WebOS Legacy rookie.

    I think there is no virtual keyboard compatible with WebOS 2.2.4 (Pre 2). Anyway, I would like you to confirm it to me, to know if I have done something wrong.

    No virtual keyboard works in WebOS 2.2.4 (Pre 2)? Why?

    There was apparently code in there, but it didn't work until webOS 3.0 on the Touchpad. The obvious reason is that there's a perfectly good H/W keyboard on the phone..?

    There was an app called quick keys keyboard that worked OK. It sits at the bottom like a notification to be called up with a tap. IIRC, the problem was that it couldn't be closely tied into the system, so text had to be 'sent' to the app by pressing a button on the KB.

    Well, actually if I remember right there's somewhere a patch to activate the hidden virtual keyboard on 2.2.4. But it's not recommended, since it can cause issues ( I think crashes if rotating, for sure ).
    As Preemptive mentioned, the route with less troubles was a 3rd party app

    I'm willing to try that patch (I'm curious). Can you give me more information? Where I download it? What is your name?

    I will also test the Preemptive applications.

    Lately I am very busy with my Palm. I did not think I was going to be so busy with her (I bought it months ago)!

    I'm pretty sure it's in a thread on this forum, and a zip or such is added there, but right now i don't remember its name ( my name is Alessandro )
