    I use the stock messaging app and have SMS Popup and it happened to me. It was too annoyingn for me because it would happen a LOT. I ended up uninstalling SMS Popup one day assuming it was the culprit, and the problem stopped occuring. Not sure if it's the same case with you, though. :/

    I have it happen with the handsent pop up once or twice a week. Before the last update, when it would happen, I could still input texct, I just couldnt see it. After the latest update, if the text doesnt show, it isnt there. I just close the popup and open the app and it works fine from there.

    I have the same problem, but I wasn't sure it was Handcent or the Swype keyboard causing it.

    Had that exact same problem one time this week. I am using the regular messaging app and sms pop-up. I just closed it out and reopened. No biggie. I look at it as one of those "chit happenes" moments. Now if it happened on a regular basis I might worry.

    I had a similar problem yesterday, but it was on the Facebook app. I was using the physical keyboard, and nothing would come up from my typing. it was so annoying that I just put my droid away for the night. I don't know what happened, but it sucks!

    Like other people I am having this same problem. I use stock messaging and sms popup. I turned sms popup off and still received the problem (but not uninstalled). I get this issue multiple times a day and it is extremely annoying...as in like 50% of the time i respond to a text. I just back out to the main messages screen and it fixes the issue, but still annoying as hell. I hope someone figures out the cause or if it's a messaging issue that it is fixed in the update.

    I've also only noticed this in the messaging app and nowhere else. Though I don't type in many other places apart from the browser and market.

    I also was using the SMS popup with the stock messaging program... Sounds to me like that might be the culprit... I uninstalled, but also just switched to Handscent last night... So far, I'm liking it better... But my guess is that uninstalling SMS popup may resolve the problem most of the time... If not, it may have had something to do with an update.

    I have this problem happen every once in a while too. It's happened to me while using my normal texting or SMS texting. It's also happened when I was using Facebook and Youtube. I noticed that the box where your text appears is highlighted with an orange box and when this problem occurs, it's all grayed out. The orange box isn't there. It forces me to use the sliding keyboard (which I don't like doing because I have that stupid hard case that scratches your phone when you slide it open) and that seems to be the only way to get the text to show up. This problem and the no sound from ear piece after headphone usage seem to be the two main problems with the Droid and both are extremely annoying.

    I have the same problem. I do not use SMS popup. When it occurs on my phone all text entry is effected (SMS, GTalk, search, etc.) Waiting a while or powercycling are the only things that seem to fix it.
