    Has anyone experienced when you select something on the touchscreen, and the phone suddenly zooms down to the bottom of the whatever page you were looking at, like it misinterpreted your touch press for a swipe?

    Yeah I notice it a few times a day... if you use a longer touch rather than just a brief tap, it'll help alleviate the issue (more often than not anyway haha).

    Happens to me pretty frequently. I assume when we touch it our finger moves the slightest bit which causes it to super scroll...
    Never happens on my iPod Touch, so I think there should be some kind of leeway or amount our finger has to move before triggering scrolling...

    Happens to me once in a great while. Not really an inconvenience though since I almost never see it. Device is still an INFANT so haven't worried too much about it.

    Happens to me ALL the time. The weird thing is it only shoots down to the bottom. Never scrolls up. Very annoying. Hope it's fixed soon.....

    Yeah, it's a minor annoyance, but I was experiencing other touch and keyboard weirdness that are probably all software bugs.

    Happens to me all the time. Very annoying, specially when it does it over and over on the same screen. *Tap, Scroll up, Tap, Scoll up, tap, Scroll up, Tap.. YAY! I got it*

    I feel like I passed a test or something when I finally get it work work.

    It's a technique issue, not a hardware or software issue. What you (we) are doing is called a Flick, by accident. From the Droid manual:

    Wrong. Anyone posting here knows the difference as well as anyone who has used an iPhone or iTouch. This is not a user error issue.

    Definitely a minor annoyance for me, too. And it's definitely not an accidental flick. With a flick, you can see the scrolling and stop it any time. This problem just puts you instantly at the bottom of the screen with no scrolling visible. The funny thing is, it could actually be a useful feature if I knew how to consistently activate it only when I wanted it.

    For me it is actually scrolling, and I attribute that to a minute flick that is imperceptible to me but obvious to a computer. The 'flick' gesture sensitivity could be dialed down a bit imo.

    It's not a technique issue it is a known bug, been talked about since day one over at HoFo.

    Sounds like we are looking at two very similar issues then. Mine is indeed scrolling down, and I can stop it with another tap. I have never seen it just instantly flash to the bottom of a page.

    Happens to me, but not too much. One time I had it on my table and had steady hands while using it when it happened. Never occurred to me it was thinking I used a flick. It feels like a bug to me, but isn't bad enough to outweigh the phone being as awesome as it is.

    Why are you defending a tech issue that you obviously have a problem with also? Does it make you feel good when you talk down to others?
