    Unable to input text

    Occasionally I am unable to input text in the messaging applications. The onscreen keyboard shows up but nothing shows up.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    What messaging application(s) are you using? That will help people to troubleshoot with you.

    been using handcent for over a month and have not seen this....
    any pattern to it? using another app before texting?

    Keyboard text messaging problem

    I am having the same problem, as well as a similar one... Every few times when I go to answer a text, from either the landscape or portrait on-screen keyboard, it comes up, but won't let me type... In portrait, the keyboard looks fine, but nothing types; in landscape, the keyboard comes most of the way up, but does not fully load, and does not let me type... I need to go out and back in to the text to get it to work... Physical keyboard always works... Is anyone else having this same problem? I am using the original messaging program that came with the Droid... I just want to make sure I don't need to replace the phone to get it to work right

    Do you have any issues with other text fields or just messaging programs?

    I've been having this problem also or seems to be the same. I get a txt while I'm on the home screen and (I have it set to pop up on screen), I push in the box to answer, my keyboard comes up and covers what I'm typing, so I can't see what the heck I'm typing unless I close the keyboard. This is really pissing me off. I'm wondering if the recent update messed this up cause it was working fine before.

    However, I did notice a couple hours ago if I have pandora up full screen and I get a text, then the msg jumps up on the screen while keyboard is open and I can see what I type. Very strange. I've tried all sorts of things and can't fix it.

    I had this today with Handcent for the first time. I had to close the app and then do a search in the browser to get the text field to populate. After relaunching Handcent it worked properly.
