    Interesting... In that case I may have to go back to stock and try it out :-(

    I have the Droid 3, had to get it replaced because spacebar began not working at all, or when you hit it it created two spaces and then a period after the word I was typing in an email or IM. My replacement didn't have that problem for 6-7 months. Then about a week ago the replacement Droid 3 began doing it. When I called Verizon, the Tech I got has the Droid 3 and gave me a fix that has worked so far. (Been using it for an hour since I did what he said without any problems). Here is what he had me do on my Droid 3: Go to 1. Settings 2. Applications 3. Manage Applications 4. Click On “All” tab at top 5. Multi Touch Keyboard 6.Clear Data. Voila! Good luck!

    Droid 3 sliding keyboard fix!

    I too have had issues with my slide out keyboard. Verizon replaced the phone and it worked great for a couple of months. Then the problem started again.

    The fix: I used alcohol to clean the keyboard and the underside of the phone body. Make sure that the alcohol is still wet and close and open the phone several times. My best guess is that the contacts that make the connection from the keyboard and the body of the phone get covered with oil and dirt from handling the phone all the time. The alcohol cleans off the contacts and the keyboard works fine then for a while. Please let me know your results.

    RWalker. I am going to try that because the fix I posted previously about clearing the data under multi-touch keyboard only worked for about 3 days and then the problem returned. Thanks for the info!
