    Is there another keyboard (virtual) that can be used? I use the "draw" or trace function when I type & blackberry doesn't seem to think like I do.

    Use any keyboard you want. Check Google Play Store.

    Swiftkey and GBoard are popular.

    I just downloaded GBoard on my dtek50 and the phone won't acknowledge another option besides the stock BB vkb. I'm new to BB Android... did I do something wrong? I'll try swiftkey next...

    Edit:

    It worked after all. Instead of changing the keyboard, it wants you to change the setting called 'multilingual typing', or something like that. After that, it acknowledges you want to use a different keyboard. goofy.

    Actually, I'm trying a non BB keyboard bc I can't figure out how to get BB vkb to show the numbers row above the keyboard. It will show it occasionally, such as when typing a password, but I want it to show all the time. Anyone know how to get that setting? Or even if it's possible?

    Thanks, all

    Try slowly dragging in number pad, I found it even better than the numbers in the top row

    numbers show across the top in password fields because passwords commonly include numbers.
    there is a hidden number pad (like on pc keyboard). while kb is open in any field swipe in from the right edge, left towards the middle
