    Screen lockups using stock keyboard

    Wife got X2 2 weeks ago. After 2 weeks of no problems the screen starting locking up when using the keyboard, especially on the "period" key. Battery pulls and changing all the keyboard setting did not help - kept freezing up. Installed a couple of keyboards from Android Market (Gingerbread Keyboard, Better Keyboard 8), and the problem went away. No more freezes. Anybody else experience this problem? Hopefully it will be fixed with next update.

    Thank you so very much

    That trick worked ("clear data" in "multitouch keyboard" app setings).
    FWIW, the last time this happened...Verizon tech support told me I had to do a factory reset...and I was dreading spending this AM doing that.

    This worked for me also, although it clears out your saved settings for the keyboard. It only takes a few seconds to get those back though, hopefully they'll patch it up in the future.

    One other little tidbit that helped me with that was that I checked off "Next word Prediction" in the keyboard settings. I did not have any other issues after that. Do not know if my issue was different but it sounded similar to what you guys were talking about.

    thanks!

    I just hit the 2 wk mark of Droid X2 ownership and I was fearing having to return it. I've just made the suggested fix and we'll see if it help. I was stunned when I saw the original post saying "2 weeks" of ownership as that's exactly where I am at. I'd love to know if it's a known problem with a potential permanent patch/ fbuix or if I'll run up against this again!

    Awesome!

    This fix worked for me as well. It is very interesting that I too am in my second week of Droid X2 ownership. There should be patch for this.
