    Strange issue lately. I'll be typing a text message or email and the keyboard will suddenly close/disapear. It seems to happen when hitting the space bar but even that appears inconsistent. Typically get out 2-3 words before this happens. keyboard re-appears when I start typing again but then it starts acting odd ... the "cursor" is in the wrong place, letters start appearing in odd spots and not where I should be typing. can't easily backspace to erase the errant letters.

    this also appears to be happening in some of the other apps I use as well.

    To the best of my knowledge, I don't have an alternative keyboard but who knows what might have been installed. For SMS, I'm using handcent but I was having the same problem with Go SMS. email is K9 but my browser is experincing this sympton as well so I truly believe it is back to the keyboard itself. I haven't tried rotating the phone horizontally and will do that but I'm thinking since it is a virtual keyboard, phone orientation isn't an issue.

    Any suggestions?

    Go to the keyboard settings and un check the box for next word prediction.
