I have the same problem, but I wasn't sure it was Handcent or the Swype keyboard causing it.
I have this happen to me at least once a week and its annoying as hell. By any chance do those with the issue use some sort of task manager?
Had that exact same problem one time this week. I am using the regular messaging app and sms pop-up. I just closed it out and reopened. No biggie. I look at it as one of those "chit happenes" moments. Now if it happened on a regular basis I might worry.
I had a similar problem yesterday, but it was on the Facebook app. I was using the physical keyboard, and nothing would come up from my typing. it was so annoying that I just put my droid away for the night. I don't know what happened, but it sucks!
Like other people I am having this same problem. I use stock messaging and sms popup. I turned sms popup off and still received the problem (but not uninstalled). I get this issue multiple times a day and it is extremely annoying...as in like 50% of the time i respond to a text. I just back out to the main messages screen and it fixes the issue, but still annoying as hell. I hope someone figures out the cause or if it's a messaging issue that it is fixed in the update.
I've also only noticed this in the messaging app and nowhere else. Though I don't type in many other places apart from the browser and market.
I also was using the SMS popup with the stock messaging program... Sounds to me like that might be the culprit... I uninstalled, but also just switched to Handscent last night... So far, I'm liking it better... But my guess is that uninstalling SMS popup may resolve the problem most of the time... If not, it may have had something to do with an update.
I have this problem happen every once in a while too. It's happened to me while using my normal texting or SMS texting. It's also happened when I was using Facebook and Youtube. I noticed that the box where your text appears is highlighted with an orange box and when this problem occurs, it's all grayed out. The orange box isn't there. It forces me to use the sliding keyboard (which I don't like doing because I have that stupid hard case that scratches your phone when you slide it open) and that seems to be the only way to get the text to show up. This problem and the no sound from ear piece after headphone usage seem to be the two main problems with the Droid and both are extremely annoying.
I have the same problem. I do not use SMS popup. When it occurs on my phone all text entry is effected (SMS, GTalk, search, etc.) Waiting a while or powercycling are the only things that seem to fix it.
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.
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...
