    space bar force closes text messages

    I have a droid 2 global and since yesterday my text messages close when I hit the space bar. This happens on the slideout and the touchscreen keyboard. It happens on the messaging service that came with the phone and handscent i downloaded. If i don't use spaces, I can send a text. And the voice recognition works to send texts. Any help would be appreciated.

    Settings > Applications > Quick Launch is where you make shortcuts for key strokes. I know there is no "space" setting but check it anyway to see if there is something set in there you do not want. Sometimes you set one and it causes other things to happen.

    Same Issue!

    I am experiencing the same issue with the same phone, it force closes ever time I hit the space bar in the stock text message app and usuing the go sms pro app. I had a replacement phone shipped and it has done the same thing. I figured out that if you do a factory data reset it fixes the problem but only temporarily. I really need to find an answer cause I am tired of doing the reset and wiping my phone ever week. Help please!

    Not normal - chrstdvd's suggestion would be the most direct cause - last update I had seemed to change my quick buttons and had similar situation such as yourself.

    If it still occurs - I suggest either browsing droidforums.net for anyone that had similar issue or go to your local VZW retailer for hands on help.

    Good Luck!

    Wife's Droid 2 Global started this evening for no reason as well. Was working fine earlier in evening. All of a sudden about 15 minutes ago, space will force close on screen and physical keyboard.... was there an update recently?

    Found this post below and am trying options suggested.

    Found a possible solution:
    Go to Applications/Manage Applications/ALL
    Find "Multi-Touch Keyboard"
    Force Stop
    Clear Cache.

    not sure why but Built In Keyboard and Touch Screen Keyboard started working!

    I too experienced this issue on my Droid 2 Global where the spacebar was force closing texts. The procedure above fixed this problem, thanks so much for discovering!

    This worked for me as well! I wonder why it just started happening to all of us at the same time? Though now I don't have an excuse to take my husband's upgrade and get a Bionic.
