    My phone seem to lose touch sensitivity when I'm not holding it in my hand. Whether it's laying down flat or tilted, if I'm not holding it, it barely registers my touches on the screen. Is there a way to get around this?

    I'm running Super D 1.9.2.

    I do not know. But you aren't alone, I have the same problem. I need to have it in hand and usually need to be using my thumbs. Its the strangest thing. I imagine its just something with the screen and just the hardware in general. Oh well, its dumb and kind of embarrassing when other people use your phone and like the touch screen doesn't work. Sorry about that.

    I found an article on how the screens may work. In this article the reference Iphone a lot. I think its based on the same principle. (then again im taking a big stab at it.)

    I hate making the phone bigger, but I wonder if there's something I can put on the back to serve the same purpose.

    Where'd you score your cheap cover? T-mo's is like $10 or something...
