How to clear focus for EditText?

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I have an activity with a search box (EditText) on the top, and a ListView below. Whenever the activity starts, the EditText always has focus and bring up the keyboard which partially cover the ListView. There's no other text view that can have focus. I want the EditText to have focus ONLY when the user touches it and start typing. I try to put clearFocus() in onCreateView, onViewCreated or onCreated, but no luck. (HowTos)
