    If when texting he is holding the magnifying glass icon then he is activating the hotkeys associated with gmail, youtube etc. if he isnt holding the button down himself maybe there is an issue with the keyboard that it is reading that key as being pressed even when it isnt in which case he should get it looked at at a verizon store
