xv6800 function key starting to die?

Anyone out there have this problem with their xv6800? Lately I've noticed that I have to press my "blue dot" function key on the hardware keyboard a little harder to get it to register. I imagine its only a matter of time before it croaks completely Not sure if there's anything I can do about it.. nor do I have insurance on my phone to swap it for a new one.

Is there any way to alter the keyboard mapping so that the "windows" key works as the function key? I never use the start menu so I could live without the windows key..

Funny that you should have the exact same thing going on as I do! I thought it was just me... I have gotten used to it and push it harder, but, I too think it will wear out in time. Although it hasn't gotten any worse in the last couple months... If it does get worse I WILL bring it in!
Arent you still within your one year warr?

Re: xv6800 function key starting to die?

it seems this is a common problem with these devices. I have a Mogul (Sprint version of the Titan), and it's suffering from the same symptoms, and at least on mine, there's some other keys that need to be pressed unusually hard, for example the 'Q' key and the period key.

Re: xv6800 function key starting to die?

I wonder what causes this?
Maybe it is dirt under the rubber covering?
There is always something weird it seems with any device....

My Function button needs multiple presses to work =/ I really don't know what to do, I want to bring it in to Sprint but I really don't feel like going back to a stock rom and relocking my phone just to go in. Ugh..decisions decisions.

Re: xv6800 function key starting to die?

Yeah I suppose I am still within my 1 year warranty. If it gets any worse or stops working I will have to send it in for warranty repairs or replacement.. ugh.. dreading having to do that.

For now, my period key seems fine. Perhaps that's going to be the next key to flake out.
