How to Change the Android Keyboard on the Huawei

By Mandy Slake

The Huawei Ascend is an Android smartphone that uses the default Android keyboard. You can install and use many third-party keyboard applications, through the Android Market or by transferring the file to the phone through the Web or USB cable. Once your keyboard is installed, you must activate it though the phone's menu before you can change the keyboard.

Step 1

Press the "Menu" button from the main screen on the Ascend.

Step 2

Touch "Settings" and select "Language & keyboard." Third-party keyboards are shown near the bottom of the screen. Check the box next to the keyboard you want to use.

Step 3

Touch "Input method" and tap the radio button next to the name of the keyboard to set it as the default keyboard.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can switch keyboards on the fly by tapping and holding on an empty text area. Touch "Input method" and select the keyboard you want to use. Third-party keyboards will not appear on the list until you check the box in Step 2.
