Hi guys and gals. Last weekend I said goodbye to the old 8310 curve and grabbed a 9800.
I am having all kinds of issues with the touch screen. My fingers aren't too obscenely huge, but for some reasons - even after cleaning and using the polishing "wipe" that came included - this thing acts like I'm fat-fingering or knuckle-dragging every key I try and touch. Sometimes it simply thinks I'm touching the key next door to the key I'm actually using... others it acts like I'm hitting whatever key I'm touching in addition to the first key on the left side of whatever row of keys I'm on. Changing sensitivity settings and orientation don't seem to have any type of effect, neither does changing the "style" of keyboard input.
Earlier it refused to accept that I was touching one key and would simply highlight entire blocks of texts in between dates in my messages window. Sometimes I can "double-tap" a key... wait a bit... double tap it again (holding my mouth right this time)... then proceed to finger-flick whatever I'm tapping on for a good 10 seconds before it ever decides it wants to join me in welcoming or banishing whatever email I want to/from hades.
Yet other times it seems to acquire this funny look and grin and works like a charm.
I just updated the OS to 188.8.131.52 a bit ago from whatever came OEM. I've also played around with soft-reboots, hard-reboots, battery-pulls, voodoo dolls, and santeria. I'm contemplating asking the UN to pass a resolution (non-binding of course!)
Comments or suggestions welcomed.
