BlackBerry Storm2 - Japanese Text Input Error

Hi all, 


I have to respond to emails on a regular basis in Japanese, and on my Storm2, I get an error when switching input languages. I get "Input system error. System is being restarted." and then I don't have a keyboard for a few minutes. I can pull the battery, but the next time I switch, the error is back. I've done a complete device wipe, reinstalled the OS, and tried 2 Verizon supported OS versions. Any ideas? I might switch back to my Tour just to get things done!

Just passing the solution on for others who may have this similar issue.  

Do this to turn off the Predictive Input option:

  1. On the BlackBerry smartphone, go to Options> Language.
  2. Below the Input Style setting, click the Show Text Input Options
  3. Deselect the check mark for Predictive Input
