Are you using the same keyboard that came with the phone or did you install a new one, also many Androids come with Swype so if you use that, look for it.
Basically, look for ANY app with the name "keyboard" in it, and make sure you are on the "all" apps tab.
Ok, then we need to see if its the keyboard or a more serious underlying issue with the Kernel of the Android OS which is far more rare but could be the issue.
Please download "GO Keyboard" from the Market (its free). Install it and follow the setup instructions to use it as your keyboard. Then tell me if you have the same issue when using the GO Keyboard.
Ok, then I was afraid of it, as I mentioned before... you most likely have some corrupt data in the kernel and we can only resolve that with a reset.
As long as you have a Google account synced to your device, your contacts, calendar, etc. will be re-synced to the device after you run the initial setup again as long as you sign in with the same Google/Gmail account.
I do recommend you go to gmail.com on your computer and click on the contacts link, then check all your contact groups to make sure the contacts are synced(if not, ask me about contact backup instructions).
Any apps you have, you can also get back by opening the Market, pressing Menu on the phone and choosing "My Apps".
As far as any data that is stored on the SD Card(images, music, etc.), it will not be erased. Only the phones internal memory is formatted.
To complete a Factory Reset follow these directions:
Are you using the new Keyboard or the old one?
OK, then the problem was the old keyboard. You can continue to use the new one or you can reset the phone and use the original one thats restored after reset.
Also, I thought I had told you this prior but I guess i didn't. You can switch to different keyboards that you have installed by pressing your finger in a text box that you would normally tap to write in until a menu pops up. You then choose "input method" and thats how you switch between keyboards.
No problem, have a great night!
