Try cleaning the screen with a soft wipe and if that doesn't work your touch screen digitizer needs to be replaced (~$200). Is it a 3G? If so I would schedule an appointment at the Apple store to get it replaced.

You have to press 2 keys for each letter. Example - Bob - Press the letter B then press 2, next press O then press 3, next press B then press 2. The number key tells which letter out of the 3 letters that you want to use.

Some fixes:
1. Change your keypad and see if it works. 2. If you have changed the panel recently it is the problem you need to fix it in exact position or you need to buy original panel for your mobile. Duplicates ll damage your key bed.

My blitz doesnt text


Try this. Touch Keypad simulates a wireless phone keypad on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols just as if you were using a wireless phone keypad. Touch Keyboard simulates a 20-key QWERTY (typewriter) keyboard on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols similar to the way you would using a QWERTY keyboard. To use Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard:  In a program, tap the Input Selector arrow, and then tap Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard. To type lowercase letters, tap the keys on the dial pad or keyboard. To type a single uppercase letter, tap the Shift key and then tap the corresponding key. To type all uppercase letters, tap the Shift key twice. To change back to all lowercase letters, tap again. To enter a space after the word, tap the Space key. To start a new line, tap the Enter key. To backspace and delete a single character in any input mode, press the Back key. To open the Symbol pad, tap the Symbol key. To change the input mode:  Tap the Input mode key to switch to a different input mode: XT9 (predictive), Multitap (abc), or Numeric (123).

Hope this helps, let me know if this works or if I can help you with anything else.
