    Seems like more than lately usual when using my physical keyboard the cursor will just runaway with spaces, or it will randomly add a period when all i did was hit the space button.. Anyone else having this issue or know of a fix?

    Double tapping the space button automatically adds a period. Perhaps you're accidentally pressing it twice?

    I don't know if you are trolling but OP addressed a known issue with hard keyboard presses on the D3.

    @OP - This was fixed with the leaked update. I suggest that you find it on the internet or wait for about a week or so to receive the OTA.

    It has happened to me quite a few times. I will wait until official update hits, good to know that is one of the fixes.

    Same thing occurs every now and then with XT860 too. I think it is a software bug.

    I was about to open a thread about this, which drives me nutz sometimes.

    I'm glad to read there's a fix coming up. Hope to see it soon.

    P.S. While typing this short post I had those running dots go off three times. No kidding. Shoot!

    As far as I know there isn't a fix. I was lucky as I bought a extended warranty and Verizon sent me a new rectified phone. I hope you have an extended warranty. If not maybe this problem will be addressed in the new update Verizon is supposed to be releasing. Oh and I know exactly what it is doing. The guy underneath dose not. I am not trying to be rude it just that I had the same problem. You press the space bar and the cursor keeps going till you hit another button.

    Not only the space and dot keys, but also the delete key on mine.

    Still waiting for the air fix.

    Just received an OTA update this Friday that fixed this bug. No more nonstop spacing, periods, deleting and... whatever else it may have driven me crazy. Yay!

    Well we can put this one to rest, thanks to the OTA Angels of mercy.

    I wish we, Canadian users of XT860, could say the same.. No OTA yet, not even word about update ...
