    Nope, not happening for me either!

    Maybe you have to have fat fingers!

    you're telling me if you press the spacebar and then an adjacent key such as c quickly that it doesn't skip the c? Mine does it every time, as well as with other adjacent keys, and according to others it is affecting them too. For palm to impliment this on purpose is ridiculous. It seems like every time I type I am missing a letter because of this. Seriously palm, catering to people with fat fingers before people with normal fingers who can type relatively quickly is not the way to go. This seriously needs to be fixed or a patch has to come out.

    I have a Sprint Pre on 1.4.1.1

    While I have never noticed the issue with adjacent keys before, I have this with comma+space (where if i press the comma then the space bar, i rarely get the actual space). I did try the A and S test too and noticed that while this normally does not happen, if i go to press the S before I take my thumb off the A then the S doesnt type.

    so, this has only been an issue for with me with comma-space, but i do see this with some other keys if i really try to get the error

    same...i think its on puropse. most typists wouldnt pres a and s to make as, they would do a letter.

    for it to skip i have to do it within a milisecond of releasing the a key if that makes sense.

    I don't press them at the same time to make a then s. I just use both thumbs to do it, so I can do it rather quickly. I believe my typing speed would be fairly similar to anyone who has used a smartphone keypad for a little bit of time.

    for everyone's info, I just came from the sprint store where I tried my theory on both the pre and pixi. Same result, skipping adjacent keys when quickly presed. My conclusion, palm needs to undoubtably fix this or a patch needs to come out!

    You can try lifting your thumbs faster since this only happens when the adjacent button is still being pressed...
    I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

    not really the case exactly. The space bar + c is far worse of a delay. I am fully off it and still can't register the c.

    This is the one that kills me. No matter how "used" to it I am, it's a serious hiccup in my typing.

    "Do you think you ould move your ar?"
    2 minutes later..
    "That would be very ool."

    EVERY time I start a word with c, I either have to consciously pause before pressing the key (which I almost never do) or retype the word. Thank GOD they incorporated shift+backspace on the phone. It's an absolute lifesaver for deleting text.

    thank you, finally someone that realizes what I am saying! It's awful right!? I nearly have one c skip every single text I send. And thanks, I didn't know about the shift backspace!

    I tried to request a patch that would fix this mostly for the letters gh and ty. Nobody responded yet.

    Repaired: headphone jack twice. Buttons and back cover once. Screen has a crack.

    I am curious to know how you programmed the auto correct. Can you tell me how you did that? The more and more I think about it it infuriates me how awful of a feature this is! I miss so many keystrokes because of this! I have never had this problem on any other device! Crappy design!

    Wait—you serious? So much for my little joke.

    I was just implying that I'd edited the autocorrect dictionaries to automatically replace g with gh, and t with ty to "fix" the most common dropped letter combinations. Hopefully, you now see the negligible utility in doing so.
