    Every time i tap my sms icon, its takes like 5 seconds to show up with the keyboard, then, when i go and start typing, the first few keys lag, but then it starts to catch up.

    i have tried deleting all my messages, and still the keyboard lags.

    I'd say reset it. if that doesn't work, try syncing it with ur comp. if that doesnt work, then try restoring it. and if THAT doesn't work, I'd say call
    them, and they'll prob say the same thing I just did, but it's worth a shot. u might just have to live with it

    I'd do a reset all settings. Seems to have cured lag for a number of people.

    Sounds like you've got a first-gen or 3G. Keyboard lagging may occur on those models due to the relatively small amount of memory they have. Other than what the others have mentioned, I'd suggest that you go to the Settings --> General --> Home --> Search Results, uncheck everything from there, and restart the iPhone. I understand that it usually works to reduce, if not eliminate, the keyboard lagging.

    Once you've got the issue taken care of, you can re-check items under Search Results.

    Hope that helps.
