    Is anyone else having this issue the screen freezes when messages? I have to reboot to get it working again, it's very random.

    Thanks in Advance

    Yes. Accidentally sent text twice because of it. Sometimes killing messages app and reopening fixes it.

    I think the 3rd party keyboards are causing my freezes on messages. I deleted them and had no freezes. I added SwiftKey back, and am having freeze issues again. Someone needs to fix this.

    Led I fully agree with you on your observation. I'm also considering removing SwiftKey.

    Yes, I have two iPhone 6's and they BOTH freeze in the message pane... annoying.

    Reboot seems to be the only option

    I noticed when I had Swype installed, that would happen. I've since delete Swype, although I like the keyboard.

    Seems like it's SwiftKey issue unfortunately.

    I like using SwiftKey too much to give it up. I haven't noticed much freezing today. Not sure why not. But I'd rather use it and have to force close messages a few times a day. I don't like the stock keyboard at all. It keeps entering email addresses when I don't want them. And I can't read the predictive words very well. I wish we could choose the dark theme keyboard that's used on Spotlight Search.

    I agree and will stick with it for the time being I wonder if SwiftKey is aware of the issues / problem.

    Probably. But it's not just SwiftKey. It does it with all the 3rd party keyboards I've tried. I also like TouchPal. But it freezes with it too. I think the fix will have to be from Apple. I've sent them feedback about the issue after each iOS 8 update. To here:
    http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

    And I keep hoping the next update fixes it. It would be nice if Apple would at least acknowledge the problem. They may see it as something the app developers need to fix.
