Help Text input not showing up


May 5, 2011
Sometimes I'll have issues with a text input field. I'll send a text or post on facebook/twitter via tweet deck or something else and I'll start typing and nothing will show up. I have to back out of the application and hit my task killer and go back in and try again before it'll let me do it.

Is anybody else having this issue? Or know a fix?
yes, i've had issue with this as well.

what keyboard are you using?

this was a common problem for me with Swype.
after i installed FlexT9, and uninstalled Swype, this no longer occurred.

the fix for me was, as it was for most people,
long press the text input area
switch keyboards
long press the text input area
switch BACK to your desired keyboard

it worked every time.
