    Hello,

    I got my first android based device (the MyTouch) this week, and I'm very pleased with it so far.

    The only issue that I'm having is with the on screen keyboard, and the edges of the screen. It seems like it will not register my input for the keys on the very edge of the screen. For example, in the vertical layout that is the "p" and "DEL" keys on the right side of the screen. The "L" key (which is slightly indented on the right side) has no problems.

    I haven't really had an issue with accuracy on any of the "non edge" keys. In order to hit the p, I actually have to hit the space between "o" and "p". The problem is that sometimes it highlights "o" and sometimes "p". Making accuracy problematic.

    Is this something that others are experiencing, or is this a hardware issue with my phone?

    I'm totally sold on this phone, otherwise.

    Thanks!

    I thought i recall hearing someone talking about a calibration feature ! Have you check the "Menu" or Settings to see if there is a calibration feature?

    Mine does the same thing. I got used to it really. You can still hit all of the buttons, it just takes a couple days to get used to where you have to tap

    Mine is same, common complaint amongst co-workers with same unit.

    Search for HTC_IME for an alternate keyboard. I like it.
