    Hey all. Recently I've been experiencing double letters when typing with the physical keyboard.. started off at just repeating o's very rarely, now it's every letter pretty often.

    Any one else having this problem?

    Yup, I'm experiencing the same thing. i've had my Droid since it was released and I use the physical keyboard quite a bit. I'm thinking the keys losing it's reflex (for lack of a better term) therefore inputting the letter twice when pressed.

    I've thought about going to VZ with the problem but I really don't want to deal with the VZ store on the weekends...

    I'm having a similar problem, only mine is just the space key. So I end up with a bunch of periods everywhere in the middle of my sentences...

    Mine is like that too. Only happens to a all of my keys, just some more than others. I'm gonna try and take it to VZW when I get home Sunday to see what they say. I'll update you guys when that happens, unless someone else knows a fix.

    So they just told me to call and get my replacement "refurbished" phone. No one at the store could figure out what was wrong :(

    double letters

    I started noticing the double letters after the last update. I think that its a software issue, not a hardware issue. Its pretty annoying to say the least.. hope they address this soon.

    Never thought of it this way.. but now that I do it makes sense. When I installed my first 2.1 ROM I noticed it. Even with stock 2.1 I noticed it.. gonna try to go back to 2.0.1 stock and see if it's still there.

    Hmmm... maybe it is a software issue. Regardless I finally got around to going the Verizon store. They didn't even bother to try and troubleshoot it. Instead they just said they'd send me a new phone. If that doesn't solve it then its got to be a software issue. Ill just have to us the virtual keyboard.

    Holy sh*t. You are the man! Everyone else having issues, definitely do this. If you still need a touch-screen keyboard, grab Swype or any other replacement.

    Thanks A TON!!

    I'm not having the same symptoms as the ones you describe, so this fix does not work for me. I just get the first letter of whatever field in duplicate. Most commonly in the search bar of the browser, so it definitely is software and not hardware related. Don't know what to do about it... Droid 1 (milestone canada) android 2.2.1 rooted..

    clear out the keyboard data

    I just solved this problem by clearing out the keyboard data.


    Go to settings > applications > all > android keyboard

    And select clear data.

    A warning pops up that says it isgoing to delete all your stuff, but you wont even notice.
