Are you typing with caps on. Lol just kidding. What about typing "j"
If the screen is damaged, it will be damaged. I doubt it will just decide to not put dots on letters
do a battery pull?

As stated above, I would try removing the battery for 30 seconds while the phone is powered on. If that doesn't work, contact your carrier (T-mobile) and let them know of the issue. They should be able to send you a replacement if the device is under warranty.

Actually, since you dropped the phone, this may not be covered under warranty but may be considered user abuse.

is there visible damage to the phone? they wouldn't know if you dropped it if there isn't. good luck. i find it hard to believe dropping the phone would do something like that.
