Keyboard freezing when responding to text messages

2 nights ago i received a text and when i went to reply, it froze up my screen and would not allow me to input any info or exit that screen unless i reset the phone by removing the battery or holding the power off button for a LONG LONG time.When it finally resets it goes to a plain white screen and takes some minutes to show the main screen again.Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Re: keyboard freezing when responding to text messages

My razr v3 froze somewhat like yours. It would turn on but no buttons worked. The only way to turn it off was remove the battery. BUT, if I removed the extra 1G memory card, replace the battery, everything works again. If the memory card is put back in, nothing works. Maybe this will help.

How to block text messages

You can block text messages from a specific number or contact on your Android device with a third-party solution. Just follow these steps.

Blocking Text Messages

Option 1

Note: These steps are for the stock “Messaging” app included with Android 5. Some carriers may include a different app for messaging.

Open “Messaging“.
Press the “Menu” Menu icon icon located at the upper-right corner.
Select “Blacklist“.
Set “Blacklist” to “On“, then select the plus (+) to add a person to block.
Type the number you wsih to block. Check “Block incoming calls” and/or “Block incoming messages” as desired, then select “OK“.
If you wish to remove a number from Blacklist, select the number, then choose “Delete“.
Option 2

If your messaging app does not offer a Blacklist option, use Handcent.

Download and install Handcent SMS for your text messaging needs. It’s available in the Google Play store.
Since you’ll be using Handcent for text messaging, disable the notifications for your current text messaging app. Otherwise, you’ll get double notifications for text messages.
Open Handcent then select the “Menu” Android menu button icon at the upper left corner of the screen, then select the gear in the lower left corner of the screen.
Select “Security & privacy” > “Manage blacklist“.
Tap the plus (+) icon to add the phone number you wish to block. You can choose one from your contacts, call logs, or input the number directly.

Now all of the text messages from that person will be blocked and not visible in the Handcent app. You won’t get notifications you’ve received a message from the person either. If you ever want to unblock the person, return to the “Manage blacklist” screen, tap it, then select “Unblacklist“.

Some users have reported that the app “Private Space” works well for them.

Sending an Automatic Reply

If you want to let a person know they have been blocked, you will need to download and install SwiftReply. SwiftReply will allow you to setup an auto reply for specific Contacts.

Ensure the mobile number you wish to block is listed in your Contacts.
Open “SwiftReply” and tap the plus icon (+) to make a new auto-reply.
Type the name you would like to use for the reply and the text you would like to send to the person.
Scroll down and select “Enable User Filter” > “Contacts“.
Tap “Add” and choose the people in your Contacts list that you would like to receive the reply. Tap “Done” when your list is complete.
Tap “Save“, then tap “Off” to turn the auto-reply on.
The specified people will now receive your message automatically and Handcent will block them from your view.

I have had my samsung impression for 3 months. First issue is during texting, after sending a few text messages, it will not allow me to send anymore unless I turn the phone off and then back on. Okay,...

unfortunately there is no quick fix for this as far as i know. my first impression (that i only had for 3 1/2 months) decided to completely freeze the touchscreen, when i had absolutely no water damage and had never dropped it. i tried EVERYTHING took out the battery and the sim for an entire day, turned it on and off, and nothing worked. One thing i know, try your best not to drop this phone because my friend also had to get a new one because she dropped it several times, and they are VERY sensitive, and dropping it throws off the calibration, as does getting liquid on the screen. I went to a local at&t store and they said I would be eligible for a new phone because I had not caused the phone to stop working, but they could not give me one at the local store. i went to a DSC (device service center) for at&t, and the guy took one look at my phone, tried to play around with it, and within a couple minutes said I would be receiving a new phone that day. I received a new phone, and even got my numbers and my sim transferred for me. if your phone continues to freeze up, definitely bring it in. hope this helps :)

Missing new text message notification and alert sound

well i am not so sure about what would have went wrong..but you can check if you have enabled Screened messages. In that case messages do come but they directly go into the screened messages.
