I'd suggest two things: 1) flash the phone, again, to 2008.9; then give the
FDOM a shot. 

The text entry issues you note sound exactly like my learning curve on
illume -- if you haven't already looked here, check
for more info about how to use it. FDOM includes a kb switcher that will
give you a full keyboard (with up and down and CTRL, etc.).
