    Hello,

    I apologize in advance if this topic has been covered.

    I began experiencing a problem 2 days ago, basically I will begin to type something in twitter, or on a website, and today even a text message. The cursor will freeze up, and after a few seconds I will get the message that "_____ has stopped working" and have to force close it.

    Anybody experiencing this?

    when I had my pro, it did this and it was frustrating. first try wiping the cache, if that doesn't work, you'll most likely have to do a factory reset. that's what fixed mine.

    good luck!

    under settings or you can boot into bootloader and wipe the entire phone cache.

    The Solution Is Simpler

    This is a problem that has plagued most Droid Pro users when upgrading to gingerbread. Here's the fix for it.

    Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> All -> Multi-Touch Keyboard

    Then press Clear Cache and Clear Data

    Reboot the phone

    Everything's fixed.

    Thanks hotkoko for adding your comments.
    I'm just very disappointed overall with the Droid Pro. I bought this model 14 months ago (when it first launched) & when the OTA Upgrade Automatically downloaded several months ago it removed/ replaced a lot of functional features with headaches.
    I'm sure rooting this phone may resolve some of the issues but I don't want to go that route.
    Thanks again for posting your comments!

    I've been experiencing alot of the same frustrations.I've done the factory wipe. Cleared and deleted everything I possibly could, but nothing seemed to work. It has gotten so SLOW and quirky and freezes with typing and is so sluggish! I'm so frustrated. My upgrade is due in April, but I'm tempted to go back to the Blackberry (!!!!!) Because this thing has gotten so frustrating and I don't see any hope of them catering to OUR needs for a hard keyboard by debuting an updated replacement for the Pro. All the other models are CONSTANTLY improving and updating, but NOOOOO not us "Blackberry converts" who still want the same keyboard! *sigh* Grrrrrrrr.......

    You read Overmann's post from December 30th? It totally worked for me & every time my typing freezes up, which is only about 1x/ month.

    Don't know if you got an answer. Auto word select was on my bf's pro. Verizon peeps said if you don't use the suggested word, pro stores it. Then when phone gets full, it starts freezing. They deleted his stored words and settings were changed to NOT suggest words. Hope this helps-i'm not too tech savvy, but that's how I remember it.
