    Is there a way to get this thing to stop vibrating with every touch of the finger? When typing text or email it vibrates with every input. There has got to be a way to turn this off. I had the Motorola droid when it first came out with the same feature and I just turned it off. I don't see that anywhere on this phone. I am liking it a lot though. Time to order the extended battery.

    Yes. With the keyboard open, click the "gear" icon (second icon on the bottom row.) Then click "text input" and turn off the setting "Vibrate when typing".

    AHHHH thank you thank you thank you. I use this phone for business and putting out 50+ emails a day is driving me crazy with the vibrate.

    What is swype? Is it in the market place or something? I am willing to try anything. I was have been a blackberry guy for 7 + years. Then tried the Droid and didn't really care for it. One of our engineers had the Eris and I liked that a lot. And know that there is a hardcore extended battery I was all over it.

    swype is here:
    Swype | Text Input for Screens

    if you google swype 1.16 you can find it somewhere on the net, but I don't think its ok to post direct links to possibly illegal software. the big issue is they don't sell the swype application they only sell to OEM's. So you'll never be able to by swype.

    It's the button between the 'keyboard' button and the comma

    @ Crackmonkey :

    Yikes! Am I too late? Did I miss the chance with your generous offer of your second swype account? I hope not, because I just got my first Droid phone a little more than a week ago, and by the time I even heard about Swype, the beta was closed.

    So, I can't send PMs yet (zero posts so far), but I'll try to post a few and PM you about the swype account. Later, since I don't want to just dump a ton of spammy posts. But if you read this before you get a PM from me, please consider me very very interested. I can return your email address, as you mentioned, within 24 hours. Probably much less, actually, since I'll swoop on swyyp as soon as I see your message. Thank you!!!

    On my Nexus I... with the keyboard open pres and hold the mike (next to the space bar) then let go once settings appears. A box labeled input options will open tap on "google keyboard settings" then uncheck "vibrate on keypress" veala no more annoying vibrations
