Samsung Galaxy S3 keyboard dissapears
hi there, thanks for any help in advance! i just bought my Galaxy S3 and i have 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.
I've tried a new firmware, other keyboard applications and factory reset, but problem persists.
I was hoping someone here could help me.
Thanks in advance
