    I will post my results when my "new" phone arrives. Like I said, I'm hoping for the best... Just to be sure I'm reading your last correctly, are you saying that you think every X might be having this problem, but that it's just not something that others notice or are affected by (like if they use Swipe)? That's what I got from reading that but that sentence had like a double or triple negative (just giving you a hard time)

    If the new phone does the same thing I'm going to be pretty displeased and might try to coax Verizon into letting me make a lateral move to a different phone that doesn't have the same issue.

    If it was simply an aesthetic change that bothered me it would be one thing, but this is an actual usability issue.

    Overall I really like the new OS though, which makes this issue all the more annoying lol

    I have this exact issue as well. Also the spacebar sensitivity seams to change. Sometimes its super sensitive and I get a space before I touch the screen. Other times I have to apply a little pressure =\ I also have the issue with the punctuation.

    When long pressing on the period for the double bar slide your finger a little bit farther down the screen? @!?

    To do what? That's how I'm able to get all of the keys on the bottom row of the punctuation menu that pops up but I still can't get that menu to stay open without holding my finger on the button and the selection on screen does not match the location of my finger.

    If I long press the period at the very bottom of the screen it doesn't select it. I have to be in the middle of the button and then, when the pop up opens, the + symbol is already selected...


    Hopefully the referb comes Wednesday and I can move on lol.

    keep your finger down on the screen slide back and forth and down to highlight the punctuation you want to use. my phone does the same thing and I use better keyboard 8

    That's what I've been doing but this is different than is used to be, and for the worse... Also, the key selected when I do this is off by about 1cm. For example, when I hold the button to open that menu it should either highlight none of the keys, or highlight the "," key based on where my finger is wrt the menu that opens. What it actually does is highlights the "+" key which is on the upper row. That means to even get the bottom row you have to push your finger all the way to the outer frame of the screen.

    If it's functioning as intended I'm not impressed and pretty upset about being "forced" in to using it. I would not have bought the phone if that's how the keyboard functioned, mostly because I would have assumed there was something wrong with it...

    Yes, you didn't not read that incorrectly. Or not. Or something like that...
    Now I'm confused.

    Actually you got what I was saying exactly.

    Sounds like Wyld has the same problem but is coping like I am but what I'd really like it to do is to behave the way it did before with the pop up punctuation menu STAYING open and not requiring me to slide my finger while pressing against the screen. After all, on a regular keyboard, I don't slide my fingers to type. To change this in this way is totally counterproductive and a change just for the sake of change!

    Are you saying it acts the same way with "better keyboard 8" in that you have to keep your finger pressed against the screen AND you have to force yourself to slide your finger way along the bottom edge to select some punctuation?

    Just trying to make sure I read that correctly.
