does anyone have any problems with there keyboard freezing up wile texting? i did a reset its good for a few days then it acts up again other than that i have no issues
Some times I notice that when I type the keyboard is popping the keys but no text is coming up. Not too often does this happen. I hit the back button and then back on the text box and it starts working. My Eris did this a ton and it took minutes to work..
Go to settings/application /manage applications /all tab and you can reset the keyboard. You might lose saved words in the dictionary.
i think my problem was the yahoo messenger since the new 2.3.340 update yahoo messenger has been having problems i was reading the reviews about the x's freeezing up
happens to me all the time with swifkey or swype.

driving me nuts

This happened to me randomly yesterday (first time). My Swype "trail" just stayed on the keyboard and it took about 20 seconds for the word to finally pop up and the trail to go away.
I get that every once and a while, using swype, it only seems to happen when i use the search key and then type something.
I've noticed a serious lag on my X today. I have Yahoo! Messenger and noticed the serious lag between what I swyped and when the letters appeared in the screen. I've also noticed that instead of the "i" I would get the "&" even though I never changed the keyboard.

I also noticed the lag with Tweetcaster Pro. When trying to scroll through the program, it wouldn't respond.

I've turned off and turned on the phone and I've done a battery pull, all to no avail.

It was working fine yesterday.

Any clues? Any answers?

It definitely appears to be Yahoo! Instant Messenger. I deleted it from my phone and have not had a problem since. dancedroid
