Re: My Sony Xperia Keyboard Not WorkingWhile Calling

Hi and welcome to the community! Since you're new please be sure that you have checked out our Discussion guidelines.

 

I'm not able to replicate the behavior in my Xperia Z1. Do you use the standard keyboard or do you have a 3rd party keyboard installed? 

 

If you are using the standard keyboard you can try to clear data for Xperia keyboard under settings > apps > all > Xperia keyboard > clear data. Restart your device and try again. 

 

If the behavior still persists, I would suggest that you try to boot your phone into safe mode to see if the problem may be related to any 3rd party app that you have installed in your phone:

I found the solution its the "Smart Key" app uninstall it, it stops your keyboard from working when in a call and the back button won't work and it also messes up your widgets on your lock screen uninstall Smart Key

Strange. Sony knows this problem for over half a year and nothing was done. Why has this application still not been repaired? The answer to disable or uninstall it is not a solution. What the person who wants to use SmartKey should do?

Re: My Sony Xperia Keyboard Not WorkingWhile Calling

I'm afraid it's an issue that can't be solved.

When the Smart Key call actions is enabled the Smart Key application creates an overlay view in order to intercept headsets actions.
When this overlay view is shown, the Android System can not know when the user wants to fill a text field and does not show the keyboard.

Re: My Sony Xperia Keyboard Not WorkingWhile Calling

I have a slightly different issue.

brand new phone - out the box.

when I make a call to an automated system that requires you to use the dialpad to enter a number - I press the key, but the system does not recognise it.

 

is there a setting that I need to actiate?  it means I can't ever get through to the correct department!!!
