    I am having a problem with the touch screen on my droid. Some parts of the phone are not responsive, when I hit the q key the w comes u every time, I have a few other keys like that.

    Has any one had the same problem and any ideas on how to fix this?

    I had the same issue a while ago, what i did was downloading a free keyboard app and install it. Change the default input method to the new keyboard app, use it for 5 minute then i reverted the default input to the android keyboard. somehow that fixed, kinda like a "keyboard reset".
    I hope this will work for you:icon_ banana:

    Tried doing both doing full unroot and installing a keyboard and uninstalling the keyboard and the exact same problem.

    Its like the bottom left side of the touch screen is messed up, guess I need to call Verizon.

    Any other thoughts?

    good luck
