Motorola Droid X :: Refurb - Swype Keyboard Not Responding

Oct 30, 2010

I just received my refurb droid x and its complete garbage. All stock and it lags like crazy in every aspect of the phone. I've literally shut it off three times the past hour to avoid throwing it. my swype keyboard will stop responding for twenty seconds after every word. Sometimes it stops in the middle of words. Every part of the phone behaves like this. I'm going to try a custom rom to see if it helps. It came installed with 2.2 also. Anyone else having these problems with refurb phones?

Motorola Droid :: Keyboard Not Responding Properly - Software / Hardware?

Jun 30, 2010

When I am using the on screen keyboard in the vertical position, the "q" and the up arrow key don't work. When I push them the button next to it depresses. So when I hit "q" the "w" key is depressed. When I push the up arrow the "z" key gets pushed. All of the other keys appear to work. This crept in the last few days. I am currently running the Bugless Beast .4 with no theme at this point. I did a full wipe before the install. I also loaded the stock 2.1 and did a wipe before I loaded. To troubleshoot I have done the following:

Wiped the phone
Loaded a new ROM - Problem was there from the start
Let the apps restore from the market and then did a shut down and a battery pull
Keyboard worked perfectly for about 5 minutes then started acting up again
Created a new Google account that would have NO saved settings or application in the market
Wiped the phone again
Loaded BB .4 and logged in with the new account I created
Issue still exists

When I have the phone in landscape mode the number key when pressed hits the Shift button above it and occasionally the screen locks up. I have to hit the power button to turn the screen off and then back on and swipe and then I can use the keyboard again. I tried to load Better Keyboard version 5.x and still had the same keys busted. I got this phone through Craigslist back in January so I have no warranty.

Motorola Droid X :: Are You Using Multi Touch Keyboard Or Swype?

Jul 21, 2010

I'm just wondering on the consensus here.I think the screen is so large that it is actually harder to type with Swype and easier to type on the touch keyboard in landscape mode. What are your guys thoughts? I keep switching back and forth.

Motorola Droid X :: Froyo 2.2 With Droid X / Black Keyboard With Bigger Keys To Swype?

Aug 22, 2010

Swype on the Droid X with 2.1 originally had a black keyboard with bigger keys to swype or type on. With Froyo, it's now showing as a white keyboard with smaller keys that looks look the Swype keyboard I had originally had on my Droid 1. Is this the "new" keyboard look for Swype on the Droid X or is there a way to bring back the old look before upgrading to Froyo on the Droid X? The version that is showing on the DX now is 1.64.40.9380.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Droid 2 Swype / Push Voice - To - Text Button / Multi Touch Keyboard ?

Aug 16, 2010

So I have the Droid X but I noticed that the Droid 2 now has a themed version of Swype to fit in with the rest of the UI. I like it a lot.
My question is this. When you push the voice-to-text button does it pop up a window like earlier versions of Swype or does it do the really fast and slick thing that the multi touch keyboard does (just replace the keyboard with the audio waveform thing).

Motorola Droid :: What Needs To Stay On SD Card To Use Refurb AnDroid?

Mar 11, 2010

So i just got my replacement Droid and I have to put my SD Card in. One question I have is can I just completely delete everything off of my SD Card so that I can start new? I would like to start off completely clean and not have all the other stuff on there. I don't have anything backed up so that doesn't bother me. Is there anything crucial on the SD card that absolutely needs to stay on there?

HTC Droid Eris :: Can't Type Using Swype Or Stock Keyboard

Aug 15, 2010

So yesterday my phone was working fine. No problems at all. But for some reason when I woke up this morning it started acting up. First, my phone would just freeze on me for awhile and then unfreeze like nothing happened. Second, my screen turned completely black twice for no apparent reason. And third, I can't even type using Swype or the stock keyboard anymore! It's either I can type but it won't show.. or I just can't type anything at all as if it's stuck.

HTC Droid Eris :: Default Keyboard Vs Swype Vs Shapewriter

Jun 17, 2010

I have installed Swype beta and Shapewriter. After installing, form the home screen I press menu, settings, language & keyboard and click either swype or shape-writer.However, when I use an application like G mail, or the web browser, the droid default keyboard is displayed rather the swype or shape-writer,Any suggestions on where I need to adjust settings so that the default keyboard is either swype or shape-writer?I have used swype in the past and it worked great, unitil the beta expired. I just downloaded the new beta from the swype.com site. Just can't make it the default though.

Jun 29, 2010

I noticed last night while on the charger I have the following problems...

1. Backlight no longer working behind the home keys.
2. Major lag in the keyboard.

Unplugging the phone instantly fixes all three. Just wondering if anyone else is noticing similar?

Motorola Droid X :: APP - ROOT - Keyboard - Keyboard Manager - Dual Keyboard - Portrait - Landscape Switch

Nov 10, 2010

I tried it and it works so far.

Dev = ne0fhyk from XDA.

From the XDA forum: Link to app page = [APP][ROOT/Keyboard] Keyboard Manager - Dual keyboard: Portrait/landscape switch - xda-developers

Verbage:

Keyboard Manager allows you to customize what keyboard (input method) appear on input based on your phone orientation.
It displays the keyboards you have enabled on your android device, and let you select one per orientation (landscape/portrait).
As your phone switch orientation, the app automatically switch the keyboard.

Requirements:
- Rooted android device (app was tested on Samsung captivate 2.1)
- Root Explorer app, or similar app that allows you to edit the permissions of a file.

To install:
1- Download the app (KeyboardManager.apk) on your device sdcard.
2- Using Root Explorer, move the apk file to /system/app
3- Using Root Explorer, edit the file permissions like below:
-- User: 'Read/Write' checked
--Group: 'Read' checked
--Others: 'Read' checked
4- Exit Root Explorer

The app should be visible in your launcher as 'Keyboard Manager'

Update:
- Added option to disable notification icon
-' start on boot' feature is disabled because it's not yet complete and tested... Sorry for the confusion

Bugs:
-On certain applications (i.e: Messaging on Samsung Captivate), the input window occasionally freeze on orientation switch. Exiting the app, and resuming should fix it.

The app is still in development.

Motorola Droid X :: Phone Not Responding To My Touch 1/2 The Time

Sep 14, 2010

Half the time that I am using the phone doing normal things ex: writing a text, going to the market, opening up an app, etc. the phone will not respond to my touch. I have to lock my phone and then unlock it to get it to respond.

I personally don't think that is normal and if it is it should not be a normal thing someone has to deal with.

Motorola Droid :: Unlock Screen Not Responding / Bypass It?

Mar 29, 2010

All of a sudden my screen stopped responding to touch input on the home screen where you have to slide to unlock.

If I hold the power button the phone options (silent mode, airplane, and power off) buttons work, but I cannot physically slide to unlock the phone.

I need to get into the phone to backup some information, is there a way to bypass the unlock screen? the keyboard works and so does the screen, but for some reason I can't hit the slider at the bottom of the screen to unlock or mute the phone.

Motorola Droid : Touch - Lock Screen Is Not Responding

Jul 14, 2010

My Touch screen was acting up the last few days (not responding intermittently) and then yesterday I installed a new rom from Jrummy (Kangerade V5.0.9)... once it booted up I was unable to "Touch the Droid to Start" or whatever is says and after multiple battery pulls and restoring to old roms, nothing has changed.. When they boot up I cant get past the lock screen..

I went to Verizon and they are sending me out a new phone should be here tomorrow or Friday. Do I need to be worried about sending a rooted phone back to Verizon? Is there anything that I can try to do to unroot with out my touch screen working? Is there a way to get the screen working again?

I can still boot into Clockwork Recovery, and all the hard buttons work. Obviously I am a novice with all of this, so your patients and understanding is appreciated.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Phone Features / Functions Not Responding Correctly?

Sep 28, 2010

I got my droid2 as a replacement for my droid from verizon after the droid crapped out with 2.2. Now, when I turn on the flash, it's yellow instead of white. Also, when I go into contacts and click on someone, most of the time the number doesn't show. Also sometimes when press the call button next to someones name in the phonebook, it will call someone else. Ex: tried to call my friend Dave and it called Scott.. Not even close to each other in the list...

The camera only works half of the time. When I try open up camera by either pressing the app icon or the hard button, it wont open. There are also times that when I open an app, another app will open. Like I tried to open maps and Dominoes game opens. Other times I tried to answer a call and I try to swipe over and it doesn't slide.

HTC Droid Eris :: Refurb - Can't Hear After Upgrading To 2.1

Mar 11, 2010

My phone just doesn't want to consistently make calls (audio problem - either i can't hear the other party or they can't hear me) and I am pretty sure it's my phone as I don't hear about that happening much here. It's gotten twice as bad since upgrading to 2.1. I hate the idea of a refurb but I might have no choice. Just wondering if I might still have a chance of getting a new handset. For those who have definitely gotten like-new handsets, what condition was it in?

Motorola Droid :: Home Or Back Button Not Responding At Times - Freeze

Dec 7, 2009

Sometimes with the home or back button not responding at times? Kind of like a freeze where u have to press the buttons a couple of times then they will respond. Also, have you noticed that sometimes that pressing the power button will not wake the phone up? And when my phone call ends, it takes a while for the screen to come back from black so I can end the call. Should I get an exchange for my phone or are these issues supposed to be resolved with the update coming?
