    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 :(
