Entering the letter "R" using full soft qwerty in Contacts makes a phone call.

Searching around I could not find a thread about this.

I use the full soft qwerty keyboard all the time. I've found, that if I go into "Contacts" and start typing the name of a person, if I happen to hit the letter "R" anytime during the name entry process using the full soft qwerty keyboard, immediately whatever contact is just under the "R" key is called by the phone.

So I can be in the process of typing in a name and suddenly the phone starts making a call just because I hit the letter "R" in the full soft qwerty keyboard while in "Contacts".

Has anyone else noticed this and have you found any means to resolve the issue?

I don't seem to have that problem with mine. Maybe you should try a soft reset.

Hi and thanks for the suggestion. I've tried soft resets already, it does not resolve this. I've had this issue since day 1 with my device. And my device resets nightly during backups.

I do have TouchPal now and it does not occur with TouchPal, but odd it occurs with the stock full soft qwerty. My device's build date is 12/10/2008.

For Touch Input Settings I have Spell Correction and Word Completion in T9 mode selected, none of the other options. I'm usually using ABC mode, but this occurs for me when trying T9 mode also.

Are you sure you used to "Search" function? Not to be rude, but its been discussed several times in several threads, just a 3 sec search turned up a 6 page thread dedicated to the issue, even with an official statement from HTC

glitch in the contact software

AFAIK, its a known issue both on the commercial and consumer, end with no solution direct from them either. Trying a custom ROM by means of a flash is your best bet at getting that annoying bug covered. Just make sure its not based off the Sprint Stock ROM as its has those glitches, deeply intergrated

Yes, I have the same issue. HTC say it is a know issue, and they are working on, but it depends of Sprint on when the update will be released.

Thank you. Yes I really did search (several times) before making a post. Which is why I said I did. I thought this might be a known issue, but my searching came up empty. Of course results in search depend on the searcher using terms that match the poster for a solid match. I guess I didn't search on the terms to bring up that thread. But again thank you, it's good to see HTC is committed to resolve the issue.

Yea, Sprint adds another layer of time on things. I guess in addition to ensuring the patch does not cause errors, they would not want it to do things like somehow allow us use of FM radio .

Re: Entering the letter "R" using full soft qwerty in Contacts makes a phone call.

I have this problem, but someone on here posted a "fix", sort of. When you have your list of contacts, press in the search box at the top, then bring up the keyboard. After doing that, R no longer dials the current contact. Worth a try.

Re: Entering the letter "R" using full soft qwerty in Contacts makes a phone call.

I have this problem as well. Another I've noticed, which is kinda annoying (and I'm reading through that other thread now to see if anyone else has similar issues) is that not only does pressing the r button start dialing someone, but whenever I push the w key in contacts (phone and text messaging) then it adds an asterik afterwards "w*" and any time I press the x key it adds a pound sign afterwards "x#". I don't have too many people with x's in their names, but r's and w's are pretty common and it is quite annoying.

Those same things happen to me also when using the stock full soft qwerty keyboard.

Works for me. A good workaround.

Although I've been using TouchPal since yesterday and it does not have any of those problems.

thanks! this will suffice until they fix it themselves. Annoying having to add one more screen press to have it work fine, but at least it works. Not sure why I didn't see the suggestion before I posted (I think I had a stale load of the page up)
