I've got a new nexus 5 & I know it sounds odd but I just can't seem to find the option to switch to phonepad type keyboard for texting. Could someone please help me with it?


I'm looking for a keypad like this to use for texting.

I'm not sure if it is a good choice to use a alphanumeric keyboard instead of a qwerty one.

But here is some choices for you:

This one is paid, but seems better:


There is no much people making this keyboards, so it is probability that the keyboard is no longer updated.

  • Big keyboard (the first link) would have exactly been what I wanted if it used a dictionary. Would you know of a free version of one similar to the paid one?

  • @mindReader Well, I did not find other good keyboards, the ones that I wrote were the best I could find. Commented Mar 24, 2014 at 18:30
