Keyboard trouble with pocket edge

First of all, this forum has been a wealth of information for myself and my new pocket edge. I now have the ermine update and have been using my edge without any difficulty until today. When I use the keyboard, it's super sensitive and wants to use the key before it (ie instead of backspace, it will insert a "p" ) I'm hoping this is an easy fix and one of you will be able to help me figure out what's going on. Thanks!

Have you tried an alternate keyboard? Here are a couple you can try:



The Hacker's Keyboard is pretty nice because it is larger than the default Android keyboard.

The Gingerbread Keyboard is the Android Keyboard that comes with Gingerbread.

You have to Enable the Keyboard in Settings - Language & Keyboard.


Long press an open text box and select Input Method and the Keyboard.

Also, try recalibating your tablet touchscreen.

Settings -> display -> tablet screen calibrator

The calibration fixed it! You made my day. Thanks to you both for your quick response and the detailed instruction on "how to" calibrate.
