    Hey guys,

    First post here for the rookie, but im having some very annoying issues with my DROID X. Everytime I try to type on my keyboard whether its TXT, Email, Facebook etc. my spacebar decides not to work and I have to use periods to separate words. That was last week, now, My keyboard freezes after about 10 characters are typed in and then when i press the home button i see half of my home screen and half of my keyboard, then it freezes copmpletely and i have to turn off and turn back on. Same thing occurs within safe mode as well. I know a supposed update came out for this specific issue (I still see no system update). Any help or comments

    thanks

    I am having the same issue as of 9-27-11, what is going on? My phone is still doing it and I have taken out the battery, left it off all night, restarts, etc and nothing is helping.. I can only use my touch keyboard because my actual keyboard makes the text freeze and then I have to hit home and then I go back to where I was writing and the entire message has been erased. When I do get my messages written using my touch keyboard, some of the words short out and don't show up. And as I'm typing, I hit space and the keyboard goes away.. Very annoying.
    My poor droid 2 :(

    Solution

    Solution to this space bar problem, go to your nearest verizon store. Tell them what is going on and they CAN fix it. Quick, easy, and very painless! They go through your settings, hit some magic buttons, and ta-da all fixed in under 3 minutes. :)

    You don't need Verizon store, its an easy fix... Go to <SETTINGS>, go to <Applications>, scroll to <Manage Applications>, select <ALL> at the top, scroll down to <Multi-Touch Keyboard>, and hit <Clear Data> button. That is it.

    This is true. Going into a store is a waste of time. The only things we are suggesting are 1.what "imixit" just said. 2. Download Gingerbread keyboard 2.3 from the market. It is a known problem. Factory reset, warranty replacement.. they're all going to have the same problem. Now, a week ago Verizon said that an update was already being pushed out to fix this.

    This forum has been a life saver for me!! I was on the brink of smashing this phone until I followed all your suggestions! It seemed to have worked for now!
    I say for now because this all started with a new update that was installed! so thank you all!!!
