    All the goodies..

    I start typing and when I use the space bar.. And only when I use the space bar.. I loose the keyboard.. And other random stuff... The keyboard disappears.. The words dissappear.. Random periods.. So I searched.. Came up with turning off word prediction.. And doing a hard reset... So I did the hard reset.. Problem still there.. So I turned off word predition.. Problem still there.. Did a hard reset.. Problem still there..
    Very upsetting. The thing is it only happeneds when I press the space bar.

    Suggestions???

    Subscribed to this thread. It sounds like I'm having the same issues with a few more annoying symptoms, which started a couple days ago. I haven't disabled word prediction nor have I done a hard reset. I'm running leaked 2.3.3 version 4.5.588.MB810.Verizon.en.US NOT rooted.

    When I hit the space bar, it freezes for a second, then the keyboard will go away and I have to bring it up again. After this, it won't show what I'm typing. If I select a word using word prediction, it will still freak out and the keyboard will go away. When I get the keyboard back, it won't show what I'm typing, but will display random periods, spaces and dashes.

    Sounds like we may have something installed that's causing the issues. Here's what I have:

    I was having the same problem with mine. One way to solve the problem is to just download the gingerbread keyboard from the app market and install it by going to your settings/language &keyboard/ and select "gingerbread keyboard. I did that while running stock gingerbread. I am now running the rooted gb and I have not been having any problems with the original keyboard. Hope this helps.

    That didn't work for me. I downloaded the gingerbread keyboard and experienced the same issues so I cleared the data using the instructions above and it seems to have resolved it (of course, I've only sent two texts so far).

    I was having the same issue on my Droid 2. Using the physical keyboard or the virtual one, when I would hit the space bar I'd have the same symptoms described by slngsht. After clearing the data from the multi-touch keyboard though it seems to be working. Have sent multiple emails and texts now, using both physical and virtual keyboard and no more issues.

    "Try settings/application/manage applications/all...then locate multi-touch keyboard...clear data, reboot phone. You should be ok after that."
