    Sometimes when I am typing, a particular letter will not work. No matter how I try to hit it, it just won't happen.

    The letter works fine if I go to the other orientation. (so if I was in landscape, turn it to portrait, etc)

    Eventually, it stops, and begins working again.

    It's not one particular letter, sometimes it's D, sometimes it's O...etc

    It has happened on both the stock keyboard and SwiftKey (when I had it installed).

    I am rooted, running das BAMF 1.7 now, but it happened before when I was stock unrooted too.

    Any idea what the issue is? Just random glitch?

    Happens to me sometimes too. Using Gingerbread keyboard from the market. Think it's just a random glitch, turning my screen on and off generally fixes it

    My Thunderbolt is also unrooted. Stock keyboard. I also have a random, not set, keyboard button that doesn't work ocassionally. When I change from landscape view it works on the other keyboard and doesny fix itself until I lock my screen and unlock it. I'm wondering if it's a software issue. I hope it gets fixed, because it's annoying.

    My wife's TB is unrooted and has the latest upgrade a couple of mos ago. She is having the same missing letter on virtual keyboard problems. Couple of letters will not type in portrait then different couple of letters malfunction in landscape.
    We have tried several keyboard apps like swype and they malfunction also. stock reset did not help. Pulling battery etc. did not help.
    Has anyone found a solution --she will have to buy another phone as warranty is up and one of the letters messing up is "e". thanks for the helpl
    BTW my phone is rooted and did not have the recent updated OTA software. I am not having keypad problems. (Would rooting her phone help or just confuse things?) Roger
