    Wife got X2 2 weeks ago. After 2 weeks of no problems the screen starting locking up when using the keyboard, especially on the "period" key. Battery pulls and changing all the keyboard setting did not help - kept freezing up. Installed a couple of keyboards from Android Market (Gingerbread Keyboard, Better Keyboard 8), and the problem went away. No more freezes. Anybody else experience this problem? Hopefully it will be fixed with next update.

    Thank you so very much

    That trick worked ("clear data" in "multitouch keyboard" app setings).
    FWIW, the last time this happened...Verizon tech support told me I had to do a factory reset...and I was dreading spending this AM doing that.

    This worked for me also, although it clears out your saved settings for the keyboard. It only takes a few seconds to get those back though, hopefully they'll patch it up in the future.

    One other little tidbit that helped me with that was that I checked off "Next word Prediction" in the keyboard settings. I did not have any other issues after that. Do not know if my issue was different but it sounded similar to what you guys were talking about.

    thanks!

    I just hit the 2 wk mark of Droid X2 ownership and I was fearing having to return it. I've just made the suggested fix and we'll see if it help. I was stunned when I saw the original post saying "2 weeks" of ownership as that's exactly where I am at. I'd love to know if it's a known problem with a potential permanent patch/ fbuix or if I'll run up against this again!

    Awesome!

    This fix worked for me as well. It is very interesting that I too am in my second week of Droid X2 ownership. There should be patch for this.

    I am so happy to see this post and am hoping it solves my issue as well! I have owned my x2 since July 23rd this year and have gone through a factory reset almost exactly every 4 weeks since. It's a total pain to have to go through all the set up and reinstalls each time so I'm hoping this works. Thanks again!

    Wow! Thanks for the awesome fix! I've owned my Droid X2 for about 5 weeks now, where the problem started for me at about week 3.5! So, yes I've been dealing with it by using PERIOD for my SPACEBAR, since SPACEBAR would cause the keyboard to automatically click "DONE" in most cases (where DONE was an option to the right). And just today using the COLON (for Smileys) started to make my phone freeze completely. First link led me here and that fix has made it work properly again! I'll hope for things to remain fixed! :D

    Thanks Again <alexdroidx2>!:D

    I am SO glad I found this thread....my X2 started doing this THIS MORNING! Called tech support, they wanted to do a factory reset and send me another phone if need be....and I just got this thing less than 1 month ago! I had the space bar problem, and turning off the 'next word prediction' fixed that. Hopefully this stuff works for me....I love the phone, but these kindergarten keyboard problems are for the birds! Thanks guys!

    Great solution! I tried everything that I could think of just short of a master reset but the clear cache fixed 2 Droid world phones.

    Thanks,

    Thank you so much. My droid keyboard caused my screen to freeze. I thought i needed a new phone, but instead followed the steps you describe and my phone's keyboard now works again.
