    Can't type more than 1 word on my DROID2 - any help?

    I can't type more than 1 word on my DROID2 when I'm sending a text, replying on FB or email. It stops then all of a sudden it kicks it out of wherever I'm typing to google search. Does anyone, has anyone fixed this or had this happen to you? I've done the *228, took the battery out and waited a few then replaced everything and restarted the phone. My phone holds a good charge and this didn't start happening until after I did the software update. I have an anitvirus program on it but it doesn't detect any virus and says all is ok (green check mark). Help if you have a fix, not really trying to go without my phone because I have to have it replaced.
    Thanks for reading and replying..going crazy Io_OI

    I found a fix, I'm pretty proud of myself for being technically challenged: Go to Menu--> Settings --> Applications --> Manage Applications --> All --> (scroll until you find) Multitouch Keyboard --> press the button that says: Clear data, a pop up will come up that will say deleting everything blah blah blah, say OK (it will only delete this apps issues, etc.). Then do the *228 and take the battery out wait a few and restart and voila, I'm able to text again! Hope this helps someone else.

    The solution worked for me too! Thanks!

    Just wanted to let you know that this solution worked for my phone (Droid 2 Global) as well! I had the exact same symptoms as WatsonDL, in that i couldn't type more than 1 word when i was trying to send a text message. The steps to fix the problem were a little different because I am running Android OS version 2.3.3. The new steps for this version of Android are as follows:
    1. Go to Settings
    2. Select Language & keyboard
    3. Select Multi-touch keyboard
    4. Scroll to the bottom of the settings page and select Clear learned words
    5. Select Yes when prompted to confirm this selection
