ATT Galaxy note with S-Pen question
Hey all I have a question. I hope someone can help here.
I just got the ATT Galaxy note with the S-Pen and I am having what I believe may be an odd issue as I have not seen any problems documented.
Basically regardless of what app I am in, the S-Pen begins writing on the screen when the pen is about 1-2 inches away from the screen. Where this becomes overly annoying is if I use the stylus as a stylus and tap away at the letters on the virtual keyboard, the letters and letters surrounding the intended letters all start displaying.. So for example, if I were to attempt to tap out the word "galaxy" what would actually display on the screen would be something like "ggfvbtgrbaaqsazswalmklliolm" well I think you get the idea. Also when you try to draw something, the drawings will begin with the pen hovering 1-2in above the screen.
Has anyone seen this? Does anyone know anyway of fixing this? I have attempted to calibrate the s-pen using the test s-pen app. On the phone dialer '*#0*#0 and select the s-pen test, yet the problem persists.
I would really love it if someone can offer any advise. It could make the difference between keeping the note which I love, or returning it back to ATT.
One note that I do not know how relevant, this is but the Galaxy Note is still on the Gingerbread v2.3.6. According to Samsung website, the note IS slated for Ice cream sandwich v4.x but no release date has been set.
Again I would really appreciate any help I can get on this and maybe this post will help someone else who may have this problem.
