    Pushing "a" on the keyboard sometimes selects all text.

    I've had this problem about 4 times now and it is very frustrating when it happens, since the touchscreen keyboard on this phone is awful. But sometimes when using the physical keyboard I'll be typing and it'll randomly decide to change the "a" key into a "select-all" key and once I press another key, all my text that I've typed prior to that point gets erased. Restarting the phone corrects it until the next time it happens, and that seems to be the only thing that fixes it. It's incredibly annoying to have to restart the phone and re-write what I've written every time it happens.

    Could be a key that sticking. I don't have a physical keyboard but I would think long pressing the 'a' key might be a macro key to select all text.

    That actually happened on my D3 just earlier. I was texting my girlfriend and was trying to put "a" but instead selected all the words I had previously typed. All I did was close my keyboard, use the virtual kb for a second and went back and it was fine. Idk what it was but I didn't like it.

    And might I add that that's NEVER happened before.
