    You've never gotten into your phone's settings? Home button> menu button> settings

    Starting to sound like an app is to blame. Have you installed any apps recently? Have you cleared the data and cache of the offending apps?

    Try disabling ALL the keyboards except the stock one, rebooting, re-enabling all the keyboards you WANT to use and then seeing if they work or if you need to re-enable.

    Also, if you're using Swype please check to see if there's an update to the installer.

    Here to and happy to help. :)

    Hopefully this straightens things out. Also, if you haven't, get into the applications manager and clear the data and cache for the Market. It's a good idea to do that once in a while. If you have any further problems, let me know.
