I have an Xperia X10. Suddenly my virtual QWERTY keyboard has vanished and has been replaced by some other layout.

When I enter the "Contacts" list an try to edit I now get a standard phone keyboard layout instead of the QWERTY one.

What could have happened?

  • Are you trying to edit the contact's phone number or some other piece of information? Commented Jul 12, 2011 at 18:12
  • Other info. I have looked around a bit more and it seems my phone has somehow become Chinese keyboard! Can't get Hebrew at all now.

    SOLVED! Seems that somehow I changed my "Input Method" to Chinese. :(

If you long click on a text box, you have the option to change the keyboard to any you have enabled under Settings -> Language & Keyboard. Maybe you accidentally switched it ;)
