    lost full keyboard and now have 9k HELP!!!!!

    I received an android Gingerbread (2.3) tablet/kindle. I somehow managed to screw up something in settings and have gone from my full android keyboard to a 9 key that also has some asian writing on some of the keys. I did this a few days ago and somehow fixed it but I've tried every combo of keboard and sound settings I can think of and just can't figure it out. The first time it did it, my husband said he thought it was something to do with a language setting - can you help me? I also have a thumb-key keyboard app which had also worked just fine and I was able to switch between this one and the full android keyboard without any problems, so whatever I did, I did it through settings.

    Hi kayj. Open up settings->Language & input and you should be able to change your keyboard and language there.

    Make sure to select Android Keyboard. Sounds like you might've selected a different keyboard/language by accident.

    I tried that (repeatedly), with no luck. By chance, when the keyboard was up, I did a long press in the area where the text your typing show up. Up popped this absolutely lovely box saying "Edit Text" "Paste" and "Input Method". When I pressed "Input Method" another pup-up appeared saying "Select Input Method" with a selection of different keyboards to chose from. The "Japanese IME" keyboard was the one it was showing as in use. When I changed it back to Thumb Keyboard, it worked like a charm! I made sure to WRITE IT DOWN in case it happens again. Thanks for your time, though!
