    My 650's bottom left keys are noticably softer and allow you to "push through" whereas the other keys on the keyboard do not. This is most noticable on the bottom left "option key" and the "left shift key". These keys and those adjacent to it also "click" differently from the other keys.

    Anybody else have this issue? Or did I just receive a 650 with a bum keyboard? In the event I have a bum keyboard, would I need to bring it to a store? Or can I call Sprint for a replacement?

    Thanks ahead for any help you can give!

    Not like that on mine.

    Most people who are having keyboard issues are having issues with the "P" key, me included. I have not bothered to get a replacement, as it is not a major issue with me and I don't think it is worth the effort of getting a replacement, but I think that if you want to get a replacement, you would easily be able to. The phone is defective, only to a slight degree but it still is. You could return it and get a new one that hopefully would have the problem fixed. This is one of the first occurences of problems with keys other than the "P" key that I have heard of.

    Hope this helps.

    I had a problem with my first 650 with the letter "H". It worked fine for the first two weeks and then went intermittent on me. The Sprint store exchanged it with no problem.

    Those of you not bothering to replace their keyboard issues:

    Later on, when that particular key starts sticking you will not be able to type, and it will be difficult to do things like turn your keyguard off. I suggest you replace your phone before your warranty is up.

    I have replaced my 650 twice now for the "P" key. The first time it stopped clicking but did not cause any issues. The second time the "P" stopped clicking but was in a state of being stuck down. This caused some major issues. The sprint store took it apart and said it looked like someone poked a hole through the dome under the key. They ordered a new phone but I had to wait 4 days to get it. Everytime I turned it on I had to press the "P" key fairly hard to free up the other keys. It was a pain in the... If you have the problem it is better to get it replaced while it is still working then to have a non functioning PDA.

    Thanks for the help everyone. I'll go have it replaced at a store. Better safe than sorry! My only hesitation now is taking the time to cut and put on that protective sheet on the screen of the new unit... what a pain!
