    How often do you turn it off?

    Ok. Do you use the home key or back key to exit applications? Also, do you have a task killer or antivirus app installed?

    Hmm.. both bc I found the back button exits without saving. Could this be the cause? No taskkiller or av.

    Very good chance. When the home key is used, the application remains both open and running. Using the back key will just leave it open until another application needs the resources...then the OS will shut it down. This is why 3rd party task killers are unnecessary. Power cycle it then just use the back key for a few and see if that helps. Let me know.

    Thanks again for your suggestion. I did a power cycle and used the back button and battery pull to try to solve another issue but still having problem when selecting phone numbers on a page that are fairly close but i'm clearly selecting a different number than the DX is selecting for me. Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Well, I have a few options for you. Computer troubleshooting is a process of elimination...

    Take off the screen protector.

    Restore a backup you've made

    Install a rom that replaces /system

    .sbf flash

    Call vzw for warranty replacement.

    I'd do those in that order if my phone was acting like yours.

    When my screen is unresponsive/sluggish, I moisten a lint free cloth with window cleaner and wipe it down. Works every time.

    May not be the OP problem but I do the same thing. I notice that you still get a fare amount of oil from your fingers build up on the screen protector and needs a cleaning every once and a while.

    I realize that it may not be the op's issue, but I've been reading quite a bit of the forums and I've noticed alot of the responses are so technical. When I've tried to follow their instructions they are so convoluted and difficult. I've found much simpler ways to resolve them. I try to work under the KISS method. Just thought I'd toss out a fairly obvious and much simpler option. :)

    I agree with you and was pointing out the greasy screen can be a problem as well.
