I have had my atrix for approx 4 months and I am a fan - however yesterday my feelings began to change - when texting the touckscreen keypad keeps flashing off and then relaods texts when i begin writing there it goes again - does anyone know of a software update / fix to this it is also impacting me sending emails. the rest of the phone is working perfectly and it has not been damaged - this is why im guessing at a software issue

i am having the exact same issue. a few days ago i was sending a text, all of a sudden the text was dissapearing, as i typed parts of the words would appear or nothing would show up (however the suggestion bar would still populate). also after i press space the keyboard will dissapear, and i have to press in the text box to make the keyboard appear again. it now takes twice as long to send a short text.
i am not sure if this affects email, however it does affect social networking (eg when pdating facbook status)

If it is happening in more then one app, then it can't be the app. Have you installed any alternate input applications? Do you have a case or screen protector? Any new apps recently that may be the culprit?
If no to all of the above, then you could try a system reset. If that doesn't fix it then your phone will need to be serviced. A system reset does erase all data, so it should be a last resort.
