    Hi guys. I am a long time lurker since I had my HTC Hero. I've had the Evo since November and have been loving it, until I had my first real issue with it last night. I noticed that when I tried to type a text, that the "n" key wouldn't work and still won't in landscape mode. It just types an "m" or a "b" like the N doesn't even exist. I also noticed the problem on the upper part of the screen when I was playing a game...it was like there was a dead spot and I couldn't click where I should be able to. I tried to reboot the phone, but when the prompt pops up asking if I'm sure I want to, the screen stops responding and I can't click on anything. I had to do a battery pull to turn it off, but the problem still exists. I can't seem to find anyone who has had this same problem...any recommendations? My phone is not rooted but I do use launcher pro if that helps at all.

    it doesn't sound launcher pro related but have you tried changing your default back to sense?

    there are a few apps that can help you test the screen but ultimately if you find there is an issue you are going to need to take it in to a sprint repair center.


    you can also search the web for an apk called htc calibrate apk

    it is a more precise calibration tool pulled from another htc phone.

    Thanks, I downloaded the multi-touch test, and scored a 2. I'm not quite sure what that means exactly though, the directions didn't have a key or anything that I could reference. I couldn't find the other htc calibrator thing but I'm starting to think maybe I downloaded a bad app that is making it freeze and misbehave. I'm going to try a factory reset and see if that fixes it. If not, I guess it's off to the sprint store :(

    Update: This issue has now mysteriously gone away, after the reset and many reboots after that. And since I had reset it, I decided to try rooting the phone too, which I had never done before. Flashed Cyanogen and am now back in love with my phone again (it's kind of like having a new phone with the new ROM.) Very strange though.
