Does anyone else have a problem with their Titan and the keyboard? This has slowly driven me insane since I got the phone from a friend (which spent most of it's time in the box because he bought an iPhone less than a month later). Some of the keys when pressed (namely E, W, R, M, and N) repeat at least three or four times with each press. Other keys (ALT, shift, P, O) have to be pressed really hard to even register at all.

Is this a common problem with the Titans? I've personally used at least five or six, and mine is the only one to do this. Anyone have a whole keyboard for sale?!

just got a refurb that does the same thing...i don't know if they'll give me another one because of this reason though (at least not for free even though i pay $7/month). my old one with a cracked frame never did this. oh well.

I've had my Mogul for nearly 10 months now and over the last 2 this same exact problem has been getting progressively worse.

I can't send a text message without having to correcting a couple words. Forget about anything longer.

Same storey over here. Never had the problem until a couple weeks ago. I think maybe the phone just isn't made as well as I had hoped.

It's really a shame that such an expensive device starts to fail in less than a year.

yeah, it's slowly getting worse and worse, to the point where i hate text messaging people. it's pathetic that my buddy's cheapass LG enV works fine, while my originally $300 titan has the world's worst keyboard. what makes it worse is that i know they aren't all like this. we have multiple titans here at work that are great.
