    Surprised I didn't see this at the top of the thread list, however please check out the following video.



    I tested this with my incredible laying on a hat I have, just to give it a soft surface, and my screen is hardly responsive as well.

    Mine is just as snappy as if it was in my hand.... *shrug* I put it on a hat as well.

    Edit: just tried it on a variety of surfaces, and it still works fine.

    So I guess the reason you didnt see a post on it, is because its not a widespread issue.

    Another thought is, certain people's hands react differently to capacitive touch screens. I've heard stories of folks who can't use a trackpad on a laptop due to it not registering their touch. Sounds like something similar here.

    I find it hard to believe, that three Incredible's in a row, with the same problem, is not a widespread issue.

    I know mine does it, I can put an iphone on the same surface that works fine but when I put my incredible on it I get almost nothing. if my incredible is on a hard surface or in my hand it works fine. My room mate has one as well, I will test his when I get home. I'm putting the phone on top of a fedora hat, so it's a pretty soft surface, not like a ball cap or anything.

    Yes, I read it, but that doesn't seem to be the case. He did the same test with a Moto Droid, and a HTC Droid Eris. If he was the problem, then it wouldn't work for any of the phones.

    That would be true...if they were all the same touchscreen and they are not. Different manufacturers and tech.

    My guess this is caused by static electricity or grounding. Metal vs plastic case. But really, who cares?

    Obviously, the poster and the person who made the video?

    By the way, that can't be it, because it worked on a hard table top that was...not metal or plastic. It was some sort of laminated finish.

    I was thinking this as well, but the Droid Eris, and Incredible, are both made by HTC. I guess this falls under different tech. I really don't know all the hardware components that went into either phone, so it's hard to say.

    Most of us sane people carry and use our phones in our hands right? So, what's the point here? I actually tried my phone out on several surfaces after seeing this, (don't ask me why, curious) and guess what? I did not have any issues operating my screen. I just have to laugh about this one... So now what, we're going to start returning our Incredible's because they don't function on a piece of styrofoam? DUMB.:r_c:

    Dude, you're missing the entire point, the phone should work when placed on any surface. Also the caption of the video states, it is tested on styrofoam to simulate the worst possible scenario.

    I don't think so, there is no point. When is the last time you placed your phone on styrofoam and tried to use it? Please.... This is so ridiculous I refuse respond to any more of this nonsense. Have fun, in the real world I will continue to use my INC like a normal person and enjoy it until I move on to something new....
