    Hi fellow X owners.

    I need some help from all you smarter-than-me smartphone users. (The X is my first, so I need to learn a lot!!!)

    I don't know if this is possible on the X, but how do I calibrate the touch screen? I've noticed two things that are beginning to drive me crazy. The first is that it is so sensitive at times, if I pass my finger over a button without actually touching the screen, it thinks I pressed it and executes the function. Second, I noticed that the spot I touch actually is off a bit so when I try to hit a link from a list (such as a thread here) it will pick the one above it.

    My second issue has been answered...so I deleted it. THANKS Doit2it! :)

    Thanks everyone in advance!!

    I can not for the life of me find where to calibrate our Droid X. The Motorola support website says NOTHING about calibration. if anyone else finds this funtion, let me know too.

    To exit away from a text/comment box, just press your back button. It will ALWAYS remove the keyboard.

    Ok, so if we can figure out how to calibrate the touch sensitivity , we're all set. :)

    It probably does an auto calibrate whenever you boot the phone, but my HTC Eris and LG Dare both had a calibration option in the settings, I don't know why the Droid X doesn't.

    Here is all I could find on the Motorola support website.

    Damn them! I can live without the sensitivity getting messed with, but is it supposed to be dead on accurate out of the box???? Where I tap doesn't always match where it registers!!!
