    I am having trouble with my qwerty keyboard. After typing a few letters , it just randomly inputs text , showing either the fn icon , or the shift icon . This just started all of a sudden and I can't figure out how to make it stop. Thanks

    Um, wow....
    Other then keys being stuck, it could be the Text To Speech function.
    Usually when it is that you get random words that popup not function kes activating...
    I would have to say stuck or damaged keys.

    I would first power down the unit with the call cancel button while logged into the phone if you have it pattern protected. I would remove the battery. I would reboot the phone using the call cancel button.

    If the proper operation is not restored after doing the above - I'd also have to vote stuck or damaged key or keys.

    I hope the shut down and restart works.

    If it is not more than a year then Samsung should accept the return of faulty equipment and send a new replacement!

    Worst come worst you shall have new equipment with Froyo (new Android OS)

    :)

    key pressed doesn't matter. It is almost like after 4 keystrokes , the next key makes it just randomly put in text. ou think Froyo will solve ? This is already my second phone since Jan.
