    I am unable to input text into any text box, whether it be texting, searching, searching for contacts, facebook...anything involving text. The phone auto corrected a word I was attempting to type (but couldn't see) and input it into the text box but I couldn't backspace (had to long press and cut to delete) and I have been unable to enter any text since then. I've tried restarting, powering down and removing the battery and I factory restored my phone just under a week ago for a different issue (which didn't fix it.) I'm concidering taking it to my provider for a replacement unless anyone can help me!

    Thanks in advance

    Next to you
    Perhaps somehow you disabled the keyboard..
    Go into menu/settings /language and input.. and enable the keyboard?

    I tried that :/ everything is checked exactly as it should be. I use the "swiftkey" app as my keyboard so I uninstalled that and it didn't help so I reinstalled and it's still the same. I have no idea what is going on with it. I didn't change any settings (that I'm aware of) and I've checked and rechecked the settings to ensure they're correct. I'm thinking it's just burning out on me already.
