Issue with Texting

I have had my Droid 2 for just about a year. Now, when I text, it lets me type a word or sometimes just a few letters, than locks up. If I am using the keyboard, I'll close the phone and use the touchscreen board or even flip it right side up and use that screen - makes no difference. Sometimes, instead of just not typing what I am putting in, it will boot me out to my main screen or into the previous message in the texting conversation. I have done 3 battery pulls, I have turned it off and charged it fully, and I have turned it off and reset it multiple times as well.

Any advice? I realize that Verizon gives out cheap phones that don't last through until your renewal time on purpose to make money, but I really don't have the money to buy another phone.

Hello,

This has happened to me two times.  Do this...

1.  go to settings

2.  look for Language/Keyboard

3.  Look for "Next Word Prediction"

4.  Uncheck "Next Word Prediction" if it is checked.

Then go back to the home screen and test the textin/emailing feature.  It should work; it worked for me.  If it doesn't work, call Verizon. 

Hope this helps.

How long did this work?  I have been having this issue for 5 months.  I think this "solution" was done to my phone on one of my calls to Verizon and it didn't solve the problem.  Just wanted to know if it solved your problem.  Has it been a couple months?  Long enough for you to feel like your phone is "fixed".

They have me clear the cache/data and then it seems like it is fine for another 4-6 wks.

I have had my phone for a long time too.  I never had any problems till the software update in Sept 2011.  The old software worked fine!!!
