Thumbs down I just can't stand the hardware buttons, any replacements?

I love my diamond, but the dumb hardware buttons are so unresponsive and never register what I actually intend. Has any one made a replacement part that is actually FOUR separate buttons (home, back, answer, hang up) rather than the stupid tilting plate?

Why not? You can probably buy the original plate somewhere.

My only concern is that the four buttons are actually might only be TWO buttons and the touch sensitive hardware determines which button you're clicking, like that stupid mouse from apple

Thats the GSM diamond pad.

There really are 5 buttons on there. The center, and the 4 corners. However, the phone only responds to the physical presses if your finger is on that area. Your finger has to be touching both left capacitive areas to be able to tap left on the DPad.

Its hard to understand, I know. I wish it was a separate button. It really pisses me off sometimes.
