    You can go to the Android Apr Market and download different keyboards. I recommend SwiftKey Beta X, it's for free and is absolutely amazing. There is a paid version but I prefer the beta. The paid doesn't do everything the beta does. Hope this helps you out man.

    And you are able to push your phone back to Froyo. My brother did it because as of right now you can't root GB. I don't know how but there's probably some other thread dedicated to it.

    Also the flext9 isn't very good, I got that as a free app of the day from the Amazon App Store and it felt counterintuitive.

    Keyboard screwing up.

    I have most of these issues, that you have been talking about. I have a Droid X and when I went to update the phone it "bricked" or something, basically it ended up freezing and I couldn't use it for the rest of the day, then they had to reset it.
    A week later-a couple of days ago-the spacebar stops working whenever I go to type a space it closes the whole keyboard so I took into Verizon, the associate guy was very friendly and said that it was probably a problem because of the "bricking"-messed up update. I am under warranty so he ordered me another one.
    As I was waiting for the next phone to come in the mail the keyboard started freezing when I would use the periods because due to the spacebar not working "I.had.begun.to.type.like.this" periods acting as spaces. The period button and keyboard would freezing making the phone not able to be used. Luckily my new one came in the mail that day.
    It worked for a couple of hours to a day normally but then it started having the same issues as the old one was having.
    I went to Verizon and the representative just said that it is a known problem and they are working on it, the new Gingerbread software was so new that's why it wasn't advertised.

    Earlier today I was texting and the period started freezing along with the whole keyboard and it wouldn't work when I was using the periods "like.this.as.spaces." So I tried commas and question marks which worked for a short amount of time so now "IHaveToTypeLikeThis"

    I hope that they figure the update problem out soon but I am thoroughly annoyed currently. I have had bad phone luck and I enjoyed this one but now I am starting to hate it.
    Any ideas for a temporary fix?

    The rom that I flashed last night DarkslideX seemed to have fixed the long pressing on the period issue where your finger didn't match up with the highlighted punctuations. And I use better keyboard 8 market app works great for me. And type a little slower. Lol

    That's what I'm reading in other threads that a factory reset will fix some of the bugs with the ota.
