    Something I don't recall running into on my incredible or incredible 2.

    When I go to send a text, and want to start typing the message, the icon pops up that allows you to drag the cursor. It also makes the letter W unusable.

    Any idea how to get around this?

    Have you tried changing the keyboard input method? i.e. Multi-touch keyboard or Swype

    I'm assuming you're using the stock multi-touch keyboard. I see what you mean by the icon to let you drag the cursor, but it doesn't interfere in the slightest with my keyboard. It's only there for a couple seconds anyway, then it disappears. On mine, the indicator hovers over the top half of the Q key, but the Q key is still 100% usable. The W key is free and clear with nothing on it. So, I'm not sure why it would be different on yours unless you're already using a different keyboard.

    Edit: Saw that you posted a reply before I finished typing up mine about the multi-touch keyboard.

    Swype does the same thing for me as the multi-touch keyboard for this. The indicator only covers half of the Q key, but the Q key is still 100% functional. Nothing is near the W key, and nothing is hindering any part of the keyboard. The indicator also still disappears after a few seconds.

    Cool, that makes me think it might be my SMS program (GO SMS PRO). I'll go digging through its settings.

    The behavior I get is:

    The indicator is there for 5 seconds.
    W is unusable.

    I wonder if the 5 second timer is customizable.

    Yeah, sounds like it's definitely something with your SMS app. I'm using the stock SMS without any of the problems you're experiencing.

    I've been using Handcent and Swype for almost a couple years now. No issues with my old Incredible and now my Razr Maxx.
