    I have an inspire 4g. getting used to it coming from an iphone.

    i have a replacement sms app running as well as a stock keyboard replacement app runnin and up til this morning, everything was working fine.

    well, i fire up the phone before leaving the house . . . .nothing odd. I receive a sms message. But when i go to reply, i notice that the replacement keyboard app im running doesnt show up. Its the stock messaging keyboard thats there.

    I restart the phone, nothing changes. Same stock messaging keyboard shows up.

    I uninstall the 2 keyboard replacement apps i had. restart the phone, then re-download the apps. Go thru the settings again. Set things back up. Select the keyboard i want to use from the language/keyboard menu in phone settings. But still, all i get is the stock keyboard.

    Ive been thru all i can think of. ive unmounted/remounted the sd card. ive pulled the battery, ive done phone restarts and complete power downs and start ups. NOTHING, makes a difference.

    So . . . . . .anything im missing? Any suggestions?

    Oh, the sms replacement app is GOSMS pro.
    The 2 keyboard replacement apps are Gingerbread 2.3(free version) and swiftkey X beta(free version) if that info matters/helps. I was using the swiftkey app at the time the issue came up. But again, both or either worked fine til today. I cant get either back no matter what i try

    Thanks

    I did that as well. Nothing changed. Only the stock keyboard is showing up.

    I did that too. I could see gingerbread and the swiftkey apps as options to check and yet with 1 or the other selected, still . . . . .no replacement keyboard.

    Im stumped. It makes no sense at all. Working 1 day as it should, next i cant make either work no matter what i try.

    could it be something i need to select or de-select or something to look at in the native stock message app by chance?
    Im just guessing at things at this point.

    appreciate any help.

    no, just go to any text box, anywhere, (google search, sms, email etc.) touch and hold as if you were going to copy/paste and input method should show up, click it, select the keyboard you want and there you go
