How can I prevent my bluetooth mouse from disabling the onscreen keyboard in Android?

I paired a bluetooth mouse to my phone and, while it works fine, the onscreen keyboard that should pop up when I wish to fill in a text field has been disabled by android.. WTF? The only way I've found to restore that function is by not having the mouse paired. This is total bullshit and a Google search only brought up 1 other person with this problem and he didn't get a solution. Of course, I just might not have been patient enough but feeling pretty bugeyed at the moment. Anybody here have a solution that allows for using a mouse while retaining the onscreen keyboard functionality?

Why not pair a keyboard mouse combo to your phone?

Well, I don't have a keyboard & I'm generally lying in bed with the phone in 1 hand, which would make using a keyboard rather awkward. Add to that my hunt & peck typing and it's a recipe for a sore neck.
