    It happened 2 times already. I open the slideout keyboard and start typing an email, some letters (like C) does not type so I try a few times clicking the key and it types. then when I hit A the entire text is highlighted and the next character that I type replaces the highlighted text. You can imagine how annoying this can be. I thought I must have done something wrong and examined that the fn key was not pressed (cycled through it by pressing fn 3 times). No luck.
    I tried the same thing in 5 min and it all worked fine. I am baffled.

    Anyone else has ever seen this?

    This happened to me one time. I power cycled the phone and all was good again.

    I had that problem once when i first got the phone. I think I had a function key enabled or something. After power cycling the phone, it never came back.

    I chalked it up to operator error on my part.

    I've had it happen twice now. First time I thought I'd hit some function key, but I'm pretty sure I didn't hit anything I didn't intend to the second time. Backing out of the texting app and then trying again helped the first time. The second time I was trying to post at sdx, where they think it's a glitch by the way.
