    Sorry for the noob question!

    I went to the native Running Services to see what apps were running in the background. I accidentally ended the "keyboard" service, and now I can't find it to bring it back!?

    Every time i try to enter text in any field the virtual keyboard will not show, and it forces me to use the physical keyboard.

    How do I get it back?

    Rebooting the phone should take care of it

    Go to settings> language and keyboard

    Check off Android Keyboard (make sure it has a green check mark)

    Then you should get the keyboard back.
