Keyboard disappeared from Lumia 640 XL LTE Win 8.1 Update 2

This morning I woke up and when I came to use my phone to answer a message and use the keyboard, the keyboard wasn't there. I click to type at the cursor but the keyboard never slides up.

I only had this phone for a week and tomorrow I am going away and can't fix this problem :(

I tried restarting it 3 times, check all the settings but no luck.

Any help someone ?

I was having same problem but I solved it by turning off bluetooth.
When I turn bluetooth on, the keyboard disappears again. I turned it off and it started showing again.
I think the reason behind is that WindowsPhone 8.1 comes with support for bluetooth keyboard, therefore, the OS assumes that there is a bluetooth keyboard attached when bluetooth is on even when the keyboard is not present.
Microsoft should fix this bug!
