    First, install the keyboard and enable it in keyboard settings (slide to "on").

    Second, when you are actually typing in a textbox of some sort, there should be a keyboard notification up at the top of the screen - if you select it, it will let you choose input, and you can select which keyboard to use.

    Smart Keyboard Pro is fantastic for typing but horrible for predicting/fixing mistakes.

    What are the default keyboards that come installed on the One X?

    It comes with the Sense 4 keyboard which has a lot of functions, but the drawback is that the keys are too close together, I get a lot of mistakes when i type fast so I just downloaded an ICS keyboard off the play store. Not as much options but the spaces and the minimalist interface is great.

    I downloaded ICS keyboard. Reminds me of iOS which I still think is one of the best. I didn't need all those arrow keys on sense which took up unnecessary space.

    Just putting this out there in case someone doesn't know, but the stock HTC Sense keyboard has a swipe feature.

    I have the stock HTC keyboard of course, Swype, SlideIT (ICS, iPhone, Gingerbread and one other skin) and an ICS keyboard. The stock HTC keyboard would be the best out of them all if it just didn't have the stupid arrow keys at the bottom, I never use them and they take up space. Other than that, I really love the HTC board. However, I have grown quite fond of SlideIT since it works really well and it doesn't have the useless arrow keys. I do wish the keys themselves were slightly bigger like on the stock keyboard, though.

    More on topic... as said, you have to install it, then go to Settings>Language & Keyboard, and enable it. Then when you tap in a text entry field and the keyboard comes up, swipe the notification bar down and you will see "Select input method," tap that and a list comes up with the keyboards you have enabled.

    I must be missing something on enabling another keyboard. I downloaded the JellyBean Keyboard today and don't see an option to use it. I have turned it on in settings, but when I type in a textbox, no option to enable at all. any thoughts...

    When you are in a textbox with whatever is your current keyboard displayed, look at the top left corner (in the status bar) - there should be a keyboard icon there. Slide down the status bar and then click on the keyboard icon which would allow you to change your keyboard.

    Changing the keyboard was very very different in ICS. Took me awhile to figure it out.
    Now as for keyboards I love SwiftKey 3

    I actually like the TouchPal keyboard (in the Play store free) better than the stock HTC trace keyboard.

    It may be just me but it seems to have better word prediction.

    On my HTC One X there is an option to either show or hide the arrow keys.
