    I just got my droid replacement yesterday after my first one had dust under the screen. I noticed that my new droid was perfect except for the keyboard. At first I thought it would be better since it didn't look as flat. Oh how was I wrong. whenver I slide my fingers to the next letter on the top row, sometimes my finger will catch the edge of the key and it slows peels off. My "I" key is just about to fall off and now I have to get another new droid... I've had this one for 1 day... Has anyone else had this problem.

    I read these threads too much. Someone posted a while back that part of the corner of a letter was coming up and he superglued it back down and it worked...

    Mine is doing the same thing with multiple keys... the corners catch while typing. I just got this phone through an exchange and when I took it in to Verizon they said they had no record of the issue and that there was nothing they could do. Any suggestions?? Seems like total BS as my first one had a perfect keyboard, just a faulty headphone jack.

    Is there a new model now? My keyboard is just a flat piece of plastic, essentially one big key, not individual ones.

    I'm thinking there is something different for sure as my first Droid's keyboard was alot nicer than this one. Guess I will just have to go and make a mess at the store... I hate doing that.

    On very close examination, my phone appears to have one large key, just as kristoff's...

    This particular phone is only 45ish days old.

    It's a large sheet of plastic molded to look like it has individual keys, when it's just one big sheet, so it's waterproof between the keys, but of course not at the edges.

    Sounds defective - they didn't cut the sheet...

    It's molded to look like individual keys, but it's just one large flexible piece of plastic. It may be 'defective', but I like it. Seems better made than one with 100 individual pieces of plastic.

    The way that mine and Kristoff's is made is the only way that really makes sense from a manufacturing standpoint. 100 individual pieces of plastic for keys makes a lot less sense than one large piece of plastic that's formed to look like a keyboard....

    I have that problem with the delete key, my bottom right part of the key is peeling up everytime I slide open the keyboard. I thought it might be the top part of the case but nothing hangs down.

    The first droid I had brand new the keys were all uneven and wavy, eventually they started to peel up a bit, first certified replacement wasnt any better. second certified replacement the keys are actually flat.

    I think the manufacturing is at fault

    I have a thoery about this. I am on my third droid. On the first the keys came bubbly. The second flat, but looked less flat when i got the third. on the third ive noted by photo and day one they were flat and are now bubbly. So the keyboard does get less flat over time. But just as others, mine is a solid piece. Least it looks like it. I think they all get less flat over time. Some peel which is bad news. But motorola will replace it. I don't see it as a huge deal. You never go without a phone. They send you a phone then you activate it and youre back up and running.
