    Is there a way to calibrate the keyboard? Mine has been going crazy (phantom types, multiple letters, weird screen pop ups etc). The problem seems to have gotten worse since installing ICS.

    Thanks,
    Amy

    It sounds more like you've got a digitizer (screen) that's going bad.

    Does it only happen when you have a charger plugged in? That's what mine does...and only in the leaked ICS install. Gingerbread didn't exhibit the issue. (I can go back to .905 and the problem dissappears, but I can live with it cause ICS is so much better).

    Just a my 2 cents.

    What would the solution be? I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and the keyboard when phone in regular position doesnt detect the backspace whwn 'pressing' it and flips over to the enterbutton or the m or l. And sometimes phantomletters. No errors when the screen is rotated (hotizontal).
    Thanks!

    Yes, help please! Ive got this problem as well. Sometimes it even takes me five minutes to write a sentence because pressing backspace turns into an L.
    Ive already tried resetting keyboard settings but it didnt help. What to do now?

    I need help too! My phone is doing the same thing! I try to press backspace and it hits L every single time - no matter how low I go. I literally have to hit it just right for it to actually backspace. It takes me forever to text! I actually have considered taking it up to Best Buy and having them look at it, but I'd prefer not to wait an hour for them to mess with it and tell me they have no idea what is going on! Any ideas of what I should do?

    I have had a firmware update yesterday and all of a sudden everything works fine again. So my advice is to just wait for your firmware update to fix the problem. ;)

    Another question is what keyboard are you using? I'm using Swype Beta and don't have that sort of problem.

    Kind of silly question, but what phone do you have?

    If you have a Galaxy S3, then your question will be better answered on the Galaxy S3 area of this forum.
