    Anyone else notice a lagging screen? I also feel like I type too fast for my screen, the letters don't register as fast as I type. I've tried different keyboard apps but it's still an issue.

    Though I have never tried kb apps, I frequently find my screen lagging. Sometimes if I just shut my screen off (put the phone to sleep) and then wake it up, it helps. Have you tried swipe??? It put a band aid on my texting issue. One of the moderators will probably be able to help more. I did notice though, when my phone had this problem, in the dark I noticed a dim led notification red in color. It may not be related, but it seems to be.

    I did try swipe and I can't get it down. It took me a while to even be able to use the touchscreen, I'm used to slideout keyboards. It doesn't happen all the time, sometimes it keeps up w my speed and sometimes it doesn't. I guess I'll have to just deal w it.

    I'm so sick of having to press the screen numerous times for it to register tho. Like just now within this forum app I had to press the topic 3 times before it opened.

    Oh and I would have threw this thing out the window w/o different kb apps. They allowed me to make the keys bigger, spaced apart more, etc. So I'm more accurate. What a NIGHTMARE it was before. I use Smart Keyboard and LOVE it.

    I know how u feel on that. I am always having the typo issue. But I've yet to use a kb app, not saying its not a good idea, just that I haven't used one.

    I have to ask, do you have a case on your phone? I have an otterbix that has a screen protector on it, and I was using another screen protector under that. It was giving me similar issues to yours. I removed the screen protector, leaving the otter box protector, and it helped some. My phone does work great naked though. But that's not an option because I don't want to risk damage to my phone, or scratches on my screen.

    Imho they should have a screen sensitivity setting. Also found that keeping my screen clean, helps....

    I feel your pain, the double and tripple tap.... is getting very very old. I'm upgrading to the maxx and a slew if new problems tomorrow.... I hope not, keeping my fingers crossed!!!

    I was the same way with physical keyboards, always ensured that my phone had one. Once I switched to the Bionic I tried the virtual keyboard for a while and then switched to Swype. Took me a couple of weeks to get used to it, I would just give it some time and you'll get the hang of it.

    Yeah its a little different... but u can use swype the same way you use multi touch. I had to get used to it because of the issues with multi touch on the DX2 after the gb update.

    I kind of feel the same way about Swype but I have decided to give it a try. I'm hoping that I will pick it up soon. Best of luck to you on your key board issues!!

    FlexT9 is another good swype style keyboard. I was able to get it for free at the amazon appstore, but after becoming addicted to it, would happily pay for it. Instead of having pop-ups for word recommendations, they're above the keyboard...hard to appreciate until you use it.

    I have a hard case on my phone but no screen protector. But I'm glad to hear it's not just me. I was thinking how annoying it would be to do a phone swap then reset all my features. My old Droid2 had the best screen sensitivity, never had to tap twice. And they SHOULD have a setting for the screen, exactly.

    As for the keyboard issues, I'm fully satisfied with Smart Keyboard. After trying about 3 different ones this is the only one that has made me not want to switch back to a slideout keyboard phone.

    Now if I could just figure out why as many times as I hide the preset VZW contacts in my phonebook they reappear eventually... it's always something!
