VKB not showing in SMS

I am not sure if this is a dupe, difficult issue to search for, so please someone close it if something similar exists.

When I launched the SMS/message app. I selected a contact's history at the first screen to enter a new message. Then, no matter how much I tapped the input field at the bottom it didn't pop up the virtual keyboard. I quit the app and relaunched it several times but no difference.

I then rebooted the phone and it was back again.

This tells me the VKB can enter some bad state where it doesn't show up anymore. I believe this has been a little flaky in the browser as well, it doesn't always show up (even though I believe the state I ended up in the SMS-app was more static).
