After updating to android 10 on my Note10+ the keyboard is missing. I couldn't restart because it needed a password, but I managed to restart using side buttons. Still no keyboard. I currently have an expensive brick in my pocket. Please help.

@user5HClBV8PIZ Does this issue still happen when your phone is in safe mode?

I'm not sure what you mean by safe mode but nothing can be accessed on the phone because we cant get passed the initial start up screen. We have to put a password in, biometrics dont work after a restart it has to be an actual password which requires the keyboard....

Recently had a missing keyboard problem.

I solved it this way: 

  • bought an OTG adapter and connected a PC keyboard and was able to log in. Changed to pattern lock to avoid more keyboard issues on login. Code number lock might also work without keyboard.
  • Found that no keyboard was installed, only Google Voice. Installed a keyboard from the app store. Maybe experts might find the original keyboard APK deep in the file system and reinstall it. Or in the Samsung Store? There is a "Samsung Keyboard" by Samsung. On my S8 it is shown as installed so it seems to be the original (updated) one. Might be best to use the one which was on the phone before if it can be found. Warning: The "Samsung Keyboard" I found on the Play Store is not by Samsung. 3rd Party Keyboards can steal passwords!

Note: I read on the net that sometimes the original keyboard is there but does not work. Maybe in that case you can go to app management, show system apps and clear cache and data of the keyboard.

My Samsung keyboard also disappeared after my phone updated. There is no choice under default keyboard. I tried starting in safe mode, but I still can't choose a default keyboard. I don't have any third party keyboards downloaded. How do I get the Samsung keyboard back so I can use my phone?
