built in keyboard problems
Hey Guys anyone have this problem or know how to fix it.
I upgraded my wifes Droid 2 to Gingerbread and all was good.
About 2 days ago the phone started having issues with every keyboard. When I say eery keyboard I mean the physical one the onscreen one in both landscape and portrait. I am having a problem with it being able to type maybe 1 or 2 words before the keyboard just stops working. nothing except the home key will work at that point if you hit the home screen then go back into the txt msg then it will let you type 1 or 2 more words then it stops working again, but when I type gibberish ie: algdkhd aldgfhksd aldfkja... it works fine untill I start typing words again then it stops working again. Also sometimes when it crashes the keyboars and I have to hit the home screen what i typed disappears as well..
What I have done to correct the problem:
Pulled the batt.
checks for programs causing the problems. ( no new programs have been installed in over 2 weeks)
Short of a factory reset I am not sure what to think or do.
Any help please and thank you.

Dont know for sure if the issues are the same but a few months ago I started having issues with my keyboard and even when trying to type a text message.
I looked around several different sites and the one answer I found that seems as if it would not help at all - actually did and I have had no issues since.
Go to "settings" then to the Language and Keyboard setting. Go to the dictionary and delete all of the collected words within it. Then reboot your phone.
For whatever reason from that point on the "buggy" issues I was having w/keyboard disappeared from that point on.
Hope I addressed your issue properly and if so hope it helps!
