    Cursor Randomly Jumps

    For some reason when I am texting/emailing both with the physical keyboard and with the on-screen keyboard the cursor will jump to a different spot in the text. It does not happen for every text/email but it happens enough to notice and be frustrating.

    For example, I will try and type something like this, "What time will you be home?" but the cursor will jump back randomly and it will end up reading "What ti will you be homeme?"

    At first I thought this was the sensitivity of the screen to my fingers when using the on-screen keyboard in that maybe the screen was picking up on my finger hovering and placing the cursor where it thought I wanted it but even when making sure I keep my fingers back this happens.

    It also doesnt explain why it happens when I am using the physical keyboard since my fingers are wrapped around the backside of the screen with the only fingers on the front side of the phone being my thumbs which are not close to the screen as they are on the keyboard.

    Any insight or ideas would be appreciated.

    EDIT:

    In searching I have seen similar posts detailing what sounds like similar problems with the Motorola Cliq XT and the Samsung Moment, but no solutions.

    Yeah, I have noticed this too. IMO it's an Android issue more than a hardware issue.
