As I was purchasing my Palm Pre Plus at Verizon, one of the things the employee getting me set up said was, "Since you're going to be using a screen protector you'll need to be sure and go into the settings and adjust the touch screen sensitivity." So I thought to myself, "How hard can that be?" Well, turned out to be harder than I thought. I can't find where to adjust this setting anywhere. Can I get some clues, please?

i could be wrong, but i think you can't find it because it doesn't exist.

I have not seen an option for this yet, and I'm a June 6th user. I'd say just another incident of an uninformed employee. Don't worry tho, I've had a screen protector since late June, and I don't notice any less sensitivity.

Thanks for the prompt replies. I do frequently run into the problem that I'll press something on the screen, and nothing will happen. I gather there's nothing I can do about it, though.

I know what you mean, and I think the Palm Pre eventually was able to train me to press it more effectively. Having been a Palm 800w and Treo stylus user before, I had been used to using finger nails and light touches. I've had to learn to be a little harder and have a slightly longer touch with the thumb/finger slides.

... I use a Zagg Invisible Shield (which is awesome!) and there is no difference from before I was using it.

There's been quite a few forum and Twitter posts of webOS enthusiasts giving the impromptu Pre/Pixi training session to in-store clerks. VZW didn't do squat to train them on this device...but they sure know their Droid mantras...pretty sad and I'd be ****ed if I were Palm.

You could always try this test. in device information app, you can push on preferences tab at the top and click on interactive tests, then click on touch sensors. Don't know if that will help, it seems to adjust it to your touching of the screen.

The PRE reacts to a lite touch even if you have a screen protector.
Are you using your finger? LOL

It may be sensing your touch properly, it just might take it a few seconds to respond

I'm using the Zagg too. Works flawlessly; only think I noticed was that I had a little trouble touching certain icons immediately after it was installed. I guess it just needed a little time to set

You can't wear gloves and very cold hands have a problem. So if you trying to use the Pre and your hands are frozen like in 10 degree weather you might have a little issue.

Gloves, definitely can't be worn!

It usually takes a light touch, and yes, do the interactive tests that are provided. This way you will know if you have a hardware issue or not.

Just remember that on capacitive screens and unlike the old resistive type screens, pressure has nothing to do with the function. It's the connection of your skin on to the screen that make touch work on the iPhone, Pre and android phones.
