Default keys not working?

Please Login to Remove!

So my phone has recently been acting really strange.

When I use the "W" "S" "G" "H" keys or the go back key it instead types "HL"

I've tried doing hard resets and it doesnt seem to do anything. Then, after a while it just magically works again. However, its super frustrating

is it an OS issue? I have

something else?

whats the deal!?

yup, sounds like some sort of liquid is on the keypad. Could be something sticky that gets stuck or corrosion from water. Don't think AT&T covers that so you might have to invest in a torx screwdriver and some denatured alcohol to clean off your keypad yourself.
