I personally kind of enjoyed the clicks myself, but I was worried it would drive OTHER people insane. So I turned it off and pretty much forgot about it. But if I wanted the clicks I could see where that would suck!
That sucks about your keyboard clicks but let me just tell you that you definitely don't want them on anyway. When you text while on the phone, the other person can hear the clicks if they are on! No one likes to find out that you are texting while they are talking.
