Default Keyboard does not appear when using Storm

Please Login to Remove!

I've owned the Storm for over a year and upgraded the OS to 5.0 Recently I've had issues where the keyboard is not appearing on the screen. Even when I select "show keyboard" it still does not appear.

I've taken the battery the battery out before which solves the problem but I am now noticing this problem becoming more frequent.

What can I do to resolve this? Please let me know.

I had that problem appear when I upgraded my Storm2 OS to the .607 version provided by Verizon. It seemed to be a problem with the version of BBM included with the OS.

It was only resolved for me after I updated BBM through RIM's BlackBerry Beta Zone. At the time I was lucky enough to get an invite since it was only a limited release. At least now they've opened up the new BBM to all the Beta Zone members. You can head over to to sign up and get a copy if you haven't already done so.

I hope this helps you out!
