    I dont know what I did but cant figure out how to fix it. The virtual keyboard will appear with the phone held upright but when I rotate it to try and bring up the landscape virtual keyboard nothing happens. Any help? Thanks

    did you happen to restart your phone?

    if that didn't work did you happen to do a battery pull?

    did you change anything in the keyboard settings?

    Does this happen no matter where you're trying to type? I know, when I push the search button, it seems like I can ONLY use the virtual keyboard in portrait mode, although, in this case, the screen doesn't switch orientation at all.

    Also, is your battery low? Sometimes I have issues with the keyboard not coming on-screen with a low battery. I'm assuming this is on-going though, so that's probably not the problem.

    Can you describe the issue with a little more detail please?
