I updated my HTC Desire X software to 4.1 and restarted my phone. When my phone turned on again, I tried using the search bar but there was no keyboard. So I thought I'd search the internet using my phone to see why my keyboard hadn't come up before, but even when I clicked on the search bar on Chrome, the keyboard still didn't come up. I then went onto my text messages and tried typing there but still no keyboard. I tried looking through the phone's settings and didn't find anything there.

Has this ever happened to anyone else? If so, how did you get your keyboard back?

Have you checked if there's anything set in Settings > Language & Keyboard?

Let me know if it works.

In my settings there is no 'Language and Input' instead it says 'language and keyboard' and then gives me a list of options which are system language, HTC Sense Input and then speech voice search. There is no Keyboard and input methods option here. – Creme224 Aug 15 '13 at 12:20
Yes I can see them and I've tried going through them but they're just you're usual settings. It doesn't give any thing else really so I don't think it has something to do with the settings but the phone itself. – Creme224 Aug 15 '13 at 12:34
@Creme224 How about if you unset the keyboard, and set it again? – geffchang Aug 15 '13 at 12:35
