I have a Samsung Galaxy 4.2 player. I've gotten this to replace my old IPod Touch. I've been happy with it, but I'm having a problem with the unlock screen.

I've set my unlock screen to use a password. But my issue with the Samsung keyboard is that it doesn't "pop-out" the letters as I type them. Instead, it simply lights the key in a subtle way - too subtle for me to notice when I accidentally tap the character beside the one I intended to. As a result, I mistype the password frequently, which is pretty annoying.

The Gingerbread keyboard I have does pop out the characters as I type. I've been happy with it, but I can't seem to find a way to use that keyboard as my keyboard to unlock the device.

So my question is: is there a way for me to change the keyboard at the unlock screen?

Thanks!
