Default texting bugs- word deletes after pressing space & texting freezes while trying to type some words

Hi all!

I've had my samsung galaxy for a little over 2 months now and these little texting issues have been bugging me. First of all, whenever I try and type the word, 'side' - they keyboard freezes up when I try and type the 'd'. Then, the phone freezes all together for like 2 seconds. I have no idea why it's only with the word, 'side'. I've tried it with other words that have similar spelling - ride, glide, hide - and all of the words give me no problems! After that happens, I delete the word [as well as the rest of the text] & try to type a new word. I type the word, press space and then the word I just typed gets deleted.

Lately this has been happening more often and whenever it does, I just exit the texting app for a bit and try again later. That method usually works but it's getting quite annoying!

Please help!! Thanks!

I see this is your first post, so Welcome to Android Forums. I'm glad to see you found your way to your phone's forum.

Are you using the stock messaging app and the stock keyboard?

I am having the same issue and it's only with the word 'side' and it doesn't do it all the time. It is really irritating. I found this thread while searching for a solution.

And I don't have a texting app. I'm just using the standard messaging for texting. But it also happens when I am posting in Facebook.

Oh, I just saw that this was posted in the Galaxy S forum.. I have the Galaxy S II

Anyone come across a solution to this yet?
Same problem. Galaxy S2 freezes when typing any word beginning with 'si...' in text messages, Facebook or viber.
