SMS text entry and send glitch. Fed up with it.

I've been having this problem since 10.1, and I'm utterly fed up with it.

 

Trying to send an SMS to someone, and the keyboard shows up and I can start typing, but I don't see my input field anymore, and sending does nothing.   I can go back to my SMS list, and select someone else, and the original person the glitch started with will pop up again.

 

The only resolution is to restart/battery pull my Z10.  This happens constantly, and I am fed up power-cycling my phone every **bleep** time to 'fix' it.   This has been occuring since the last 10.1 update that caused text historys to disappear (which they didnt, they just took for ever to load)

Re: SMS text entry and send glitch. Fed up with it.

This is actually quite annoying I agree. However there is a better way to 'fix' it. If you are on 10.2 that is. Go to settings > app manager > device monitor. Then find the text messaging app in the list of running apps. Long press it and click 'stop' to kill it. Then go back to the sms conversation and it will reload and work. I hate this bug too and I really hope BB has a fix coming soon.

Re: SMS text entry and send glitch. Fed up with it.

I have the exact same problem and this doesn't work...when I go back to my texts there's the same issue. Has there been any other way to fix this? This is the second Z10 I've owned (took the last one back) and there's the same problem

Hey, I can say that this bug is completely fixed in 10.2.1.1055.

Re: SMS text entry and send glitch. Fed up with it.

Hello, I've tried to do that, however I held down the text messaging icon for about 20 seconds and nothing showed up to "stop/kill". When I clicked on it, if shows the delete button, however it won't let me click on it. Please help, thanks.
