Suddenly tonight, I’m receiving on my iPhone random prompts to use my iPhone for keyboard entry for my Apple TV. Not unsung Apple TV (my television is unplugged, actually, at the moment). Never happened before until tonight. Anybody else ever experience this? It’s coming up every 10 minutes or so.

Try plugging your TV in and see if it stops.

Is your ATV plugged in? If not is unplug it and see what happens.

It the ATV remote just sitting there, untouched?

Weird issue...

are you in an apartment?

it's possible your neighbor has one, and it's in bluetooth range of your phone.

I occasinally see my neighbor's aTV in my airplay menu from time to time. As the aTV will now advertise over bluetooth also.
But I'm not sure if text entry works the same way.
You could try standing next to the various walls, and check you airplay menu, see if you see anything that's not yours.

if you figure out who it is, you might be able to ask them to change airplay setting on their aTV from "everyone" to "same network"
