    Hi all,

    I wonder if anyone else has been through the same issue as me.

    A few weeks ago I started making more typos than usual - I wondered why everything was being autocorrected. Then I realised that my 'e' key was only working about 70% of the time I pushed it - or that I had to push it harder than the others for it to register.

    It turns out that this makes the keyboard *far* less useful.

    Has anyone else taken their phone apart and cleaned the keyboard contacts? Or generally found a way to make malfunctioning keys work again.

    I'd love to keep the Pre 3 running a little longer!

    I have always had a problem with my "B" key. It looks funny when I type a out instead of about & auto correct does not catch it. I am just more careful when I type. Has done it since i got the phone 1 1/2 yrs ago. I deal with it cause I love my Pre 3

    You may able to find instructions for partial dissasembly and clean the keyboard. OTOH, 'E' is the most frequent letter in English, so it could be wear...

    I still don't know how to type [TAB] on a webOS keyboard.
