hi there, thanks for any help in advance! i have had my Galaxy S2 for a couple months now and for the last month i have had a major issue.
any time i am entering text, whether i'm txting, facebooking, emailing, navigating, googling, etc, the keyboard disappears while i'm typing. its very random and not consistent. sometimes i can type for 10 secs before it happens, sometimes 1 second. and after i tap in the text box to get the keyboard to reappear it may stay up again for a sec or 10 secs. this process goes on and on. as you can tell, it makes things very hard to do since i end up taping on whatever is behind the keyboard when it pops down, whether thats a link or the send button or whatever. even if i just sit there and don't touch anything the keyboard will go down on its own. and if i use speech-to-txt functions while it will cancel the recording while i'm talking. its almost like the "back" button is being pressed, but i dont have any issues with any other aspect of the phone. i never get backed out of an app or whatever.
Sprint is aware of the problem and apparently other people have it too, but Samsung hasn't offered a fix even though it has been going on for months. Sprint offered to give me a new phone but there is no guarantee the problem won't happen on that one and i dont want to go through the hassle of switching all my apps and settings for nothing.
i have tried installing multiple keyboard apps and changing any and every setting possible. i have searched the web for hours looking for help elsewhere. hopefully someone here has a solution!
