Thumbs down SureType problems

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone, I'm not sure if this is a coincidence or not, but I recently updated to OS v4.3.9.97 a week or so ago, and I'm noticing glitches with SureType. It seems like I'm running a 10 year old IBM laptop with tons of spyware. When I type, the cursor will stop and then catch up quickly about 2 seconds later, or just freeze for longer then continue. Also the space button has been giving me problems for over a month. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I originally thought I was missing the button with my thumb, as it works when i type slowly, but after having the pearl for several months, I'm not sure thats the case

anyone have an tweaks or insight on how to fix this problem?

Thanks

Have you done a battery pull? Remove the battery from the device (while it is still powered on) for about 10 seconds, the reinsert.

oh trust me, i do the battery pull whenever the pearl starts tweaking out for various reasons, yet the suretype is consistently slow and the space button works maybe 75% of the time... even when i type slowly

i got the warranty from verizon, i'm just wondering if i can bring it back because of these problems and maybe get a discount or something towards a curve

Maybe try reinstalling or downgrading the OS?

don't think that would work... i mean the suretype has been lagging a bit, but the space button only working part of the time has been going on long before i upgraded the os. i think i might drop by verizon tomorrow and see what i can do. i took a look at the curve the other day and am now converted. i just hope i can get one for a decent deal (ie not paying $400+)
