Has anyone else experienced problems on the transform with the swype keyboard?
I have tried downloading 2 different swype programs on the market and I am still getting the same result.
I brought it to the store where I purchased the phone and they even gave me a replacement the replacement is doing the exact same thing. I searched online and I cannot seem to find other transform users experiencing the same problems.
I have tried a justing done speed versus accuracy setting and also all the other settings under the swype keyboard category.
this is driving me crazy I am a big fan of this way and I used swype on my prevail for about a year with absolutely no problems. Any help guidance information for advice would be greatly appreciated.
Yeah, its not a problem with swype, its a problem with the screen. The problem isn't "sensitivity", the problem is that the phone doesn't properly detect when you've lifted your finger off the screen.
I think it has something to with the fact that the screen is capacitive, meaning that works (in this case doesn't work) through the electricity conducted through your fingers. With one finger, it doesn't work properly. You will notice, if you have two fingers on the screen, it works the way its supposed to.
I've posted more info in the other posts on what I've been able to figure out about the causes of the problem. You might want to call and harass Samsung or leave a bad review on Amazon to encourage them to fix this.
