The swype and keyboard input functions stopped working on my wife's Droid Razer Maxx.
Have tried rebooting to no avail. The keyboard appears but there is a small orange line between the t and f keys, which wasn't there before. Do I have any alternatives besides taking it into Verizon tech repair?

That's a strange one.  It sounds unlikely to be a software problem.

But.. if you're keen to avoid a tech repair, try a couple of alternative Keyboards first.  
Something like SlideIT (for a swiper) and Magic Keyboard (for a tapper).

If they both work, it might be worth trying:
- uninstalling Swype (to completely remove it)
- turning the phone on/off
- reinstalling Swype

We took it into tech repair and they simply gave her a new phone. But that was a good suggestion.
