    Definitely seen this a few times. Usually I'll have to close out everything, get to the home screen and open messages back up to get it to work.

    this is happening to me more often than not.

    I will get a text message (using the stock text message app), pull up the stock virtual keyboard to respond, and the keyboard will not respond, neither will swype. In fact, some of the swype keys are missing all together.

    I'm not sure if it's a swype issue, or a droid issue.

    However, I took a screen cap to so people can see that I'm not nuts. I haven't found this issue within swype forums or here.

    The only temporary fix I found is to restart my phone, but the keyboard will stop working shortly thereafter.


    Droid 2.0.1
    Swype Version 5652

    same thing here...

    I have Handscent and Swype. It has happened to me while using Swype as well as regular texting inputting methods. My trial of Swype expired, so I dont use it anymore but it is still installed on my Droid. Either way, this happens 2-3 times a week with my regular text input method and Handscent. It is extremely annoying and the only fix I have found is to restart my Droid. Hope someone can help us out there...

    Same issue but with all inputs

    I have the same issue only I am not able to enter any text in any application.

    I can start to enter text in messaging and it will take 4-5 characters and then stop responding. In 15 seconds or so, it will shutdown messaging.

    The same thing happens with Gmail and the Browser. I receive a message that says, "Activity Browser (in application Browser) is not responding" Force Close or wait

    I have shutdown my phone and even pulled out the battery. Nothing seems to correct it.

    I am also facing similar problem.
    Sometimes I am unable to type anything, whether on android message or other apps. This persists for 15-20 mins and is very annoying.

    What can be the problem and how to fix it? Kindly suggest.

    if it is a typo mistake or error, it would also appear while typing some thing online or does it happen only offline, i mean in your text only.

    It will clear the issue of typing tab or your handset ///

    Happens in offline texting also. For eg, even when I am sending SMS, the same problem persists.

    Just to clarify, I face the problem whether i a typing online (whatsapp, viber etc.) or offline (SMS, contact list, etc.) . So it is about all kind of typing.

    I have the same problem with you, but only a few keys were not touchable. This caused by a system update.
