Text Msg Crashes When I use Keyboard & type >160 characters

When I am using the keyboard to type a text message the program crashes and sends me back up to the first message in the text chain.  I have visited a store 3 times, with the last time saying my phone was broken and they ordered me a new one.  I have the new (to me) phone and it has the same problem.  In addition, sometimes it doesn't wait till the 160th character and just crashes after a few seconds. 

I have updated to Android 2.3.3, HTC Sense Version 2.1, Software No. 2.76.651.6

This is driving me insane.  Any help would be appreciated, but if I am told to hard reset my phone one more time I am going to go mad.

Text Msg Crashes When I use Keyboard & type >160 characters

After going to the Sprint store three times, having them tell me it was an issue with my phone and then replacing it, I think I actually found the problem.  When you use the swype input method it clashes with the keyboard, causing messenger to crash.  This doesn't cause an issue on anything else (google, microsoft email, etc).  Is there a way to update this?
