    Intermittent keyboard freeze in landscape mode

    Has anyone else seen this problem pop up? I find that when typing in landscape mode the keyboard intermittently will freeze or lock up for a short period of time. This has happened with the stock keyboard, go keyboard and smart keyboard pro. Anyone have an idea what could cause this?

    The keyboards all work fine in portrait mode.

    Yes, I have the same issue regularly but intermittently. But mine happens in portrait and landscape. Kinda pisses me off. I've never used an iPhone that has this problem.

    I also had the same problem. Also found I could not scroll when in the browser.

    It turned out the I was holding it with my hand or finger in the proximity of one of the four permanent buttons at the bottom of the phone. It turned out to me to be the problem. Makes it seem intermittent.

    I have 901 and it happens to me as well. I do suspect that it is due to my proximity to the buttons or sensor, however. Strange thing is I never noticed the issue w/ .886 -- only with .893 and .901.

    I am curious if it has anything to do with the launcher. I just removed go launcher and the freezing seems to have gone away. I was surprised as I didn't think the launcher would have anything to do with it.

    The proximity sensor is something I also haven't considered. But as the problem has not showed up since reverting back to the stock launcher I want to do a little more testing. I am currently using go keyboard and am running 901.

    That's interesting. Mine has never force closed or given me a message. It would just freeze up while typing and keys become unresponsive for a time.

    Well I pulled the trigger and did a factory reset. I have put about half my apps back on and am still having the problem while typing in landscape mode. Intermittent freezes while trying to type. Portrait mode works fine.
