    I have a droid 2 global and since yesterday my text messages close when I hit the space bar. This happens on the slideout and the touchscreen keyboard. It happens on the messaging service that came with the phone and handscent i downloaded. If i don't use spaces, I can send a text. And the voice recognition works to send texts. Any help would be appreciated.

    Settings > Applications > Quick Launch is where you make shortcuts for key strokes. I know there is no "space" setting but check it anyway to see if there is something set in there you do not want. Sometimes you set one and it causes other things to happen.

    Same Issue!

    I am experiencing the same issue with the same phone, it force closes ever time I hit the space bar in the stock text message app and usuing the go sms pro app. I had a replacement phone shipped and it has done the same thing. I figured out that if you do a factory data reset it fixes the problem but only temporarily. I really need to find an answer cause I am tired of doing the reset and wiping my phone ever week. Help please!

    Not normal - chrstdvd's suggestion would be the most direct cause - last update I had seemed to change my quick buttons and had similar situation such as yourself.

    If it still occurs - I suggest either browsing droidforums.net for anyone that had similar issue or go to your local VZW retailer for hands on help.

    Good Luck!

    Good research! I am going to bookmark this for future reference. This issue comes up in all the forums from time to time.

    I too experienced this issue on my Droid 2 Global where the spacebar was force closing texts. The procedure above fixed this problem, thanks so much for discovering!

    Space Bar Force Close

    The whole: settings > applications > manage apps > all > multi-touch keyboard > force stop > clear data, thing totally worked for me too! I've been texting very slowly for the past couple weeks and calling people instead. Thank you for the help! Completely worked and now life will be a little bit easier again.

    I have the same problem that started several days ago. I bought my phone in August. I have tried the steps that you have laid out but when I enter "force stop" it gives me a warning. I keep entering "force stop" and the warning keeps appearing. the "Clear Cache" button is greyed out

    Try just pressing clear data instead. I got a warning screen for clear data stating that it will clear out all sorts of stuff, but after reading several forums of this being an issue on several DROID phones, from the 2 to the X, the solution from everyone was the same and seemed to work. I tried it and then sent myself several texts in a row: no issues. I updated my FB status: no issue. We'll see how long it works for. I will update if it goes haywire again.

    I was to the point where I was ready to drop a bunch of money on a new phone before my upgrade was eligible. When I am eligible, I will go back to LG. I will not own a Motorola again.
