***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Why is there such a huge lag (at times) when I'm typing a text message?

When typing a text message, I can type a couple characters, then my G3 goes off into never never land, probably either trying to guess what I'm going to type next, or to look up the spelling of it's guess. It will hang for a good 10 seconds or more. During that time it might pretend that it's accepting characters... or not.  It might offer a spelled word... or not.  It might display what I'm typing and then delete the first word typed while it was thinking and keep the rest of them.

Any thoughts?  Are there smart typing settings I can turn off (since autocorrect doesn't work all that well anyway)?

Let’s work together to bring your device back down to the main land. When did this keyboard lagging start? Does this happen with every text message you try to send? Also, are you using the original keyboard that was installed on the device?
