Today, for no apparent reason, in modules like text, email & IM, every time I typed a sentence, the moment the bottom ribbon launched with corrections, the device would freeze and I'd get an error with the option to wait or force close.
The phone would then start freezing up and even the home screen would freeze with the wait/force close error. Neither a soft nor battery-pull reboot fixed it.
I tried disabling all of the k/b functions but it didn't help.
I found the answer on the Vz support forum. To fix, go to Settings> Applications> Manage Apps> Multi-Touch Keyboard and clear data.
Just thought I'd share if others are experiencing this bug.
