    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.

    Explain what you mean by this. A picture or two would be nice.

    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.
