Tap on the word 'Name' and the keyboard appears. Same for number, tap on the word phone or number and the number keyboard appears. Too simple for the experts to answer.

I posted this question. The Verizon store did a total turn off and then restart by holding down the sleep/wake button at the same time as the button at the bottom of the screen. After a few seconds they turned it back on and when it booted up the problem was fixed.

'''A hard reset can cure some of the problems.

I found that if you have bluetooth enabled - it is trying to reference another device.

Go to settings - turn the bluetooth off.

Restart the phone and problem should be resolved.'''

Hi - I had this problem on my iPhone 5s. I tried to fix it several times by turning the phone off. That did NOT fix the problem until I first turned off Bluetooth. Then it worked. Thank You!

I had the same problem. All it took was shutting the phone off, waiting a minute and turning it back on.
