I am unable to get the keyboard to come up. It works in landscape mode, but not in the vertical view. When I tap the text field it trys to copy the message above it. I have restarted multiple times and nothing happens. How do I fix this, so I do not have to use landscape all the time?

    When you say you have restarted, do you mean powering off?
    If so, try a reset. Hold the sleep/wake button and the home button down at the same time until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the option to turn the phone off.
    This procedure cures many ailments, hopefully yours.

    Like Ride1992 said
    restarting is holding the sleep/wake button and the home button until the iPhone switches off, and the apple logo reappears. If you have restarted it then I think the best way is to sync your iPhone and make-sure everything is backed up. Then restore and don't back-up! Start a new iPhone and then sync everything back in. I have heard that backing your iphone up and then restoring from the backup is the exact same because the backup has system files from your previous iPhone, so what I am trying to say is that restoring from a backup is the same is before. (sprry if you don't understand)
