    having an issue where if the phone is not in lanscape mode it wont recognize my touch. if i get a text and leave the phone upright i cant click the enter message box and the send button is faded. but as soon as i flip the phone into landscape mode it lets me enter a message and send it. anyone else have an issue like this? is there a setting im missing?

    wierd. I guess wait to see if others have the issue so you can narrow it down. Otherwise the usual applies - remove apps, factory reset blah blah

    I'm sure you know that already lol.

    Unless your contact has only one phone number total, you should get the option to dial one of several.......

    My advice - check that the phone has got the latest update (if not, do the forced update - I did, it is easy) & then do a factory reset. The good news is that all your apps will be backed up by Google (if you chose that option during the initial set up) and will all be reinstalled back during the reset process (hallelujah for this functionality!!!!).

    I did a factory reset at the weekend after having GPS malfunction issues caused probably by an app I downloaded and the whole process was much improved.
