How to reproduce problem with touch screen scrolling/dialing

Hi there,

My phone has the annoying problem of dialing or scrolling by itself on occasion when I open it. I've already been in for the software upgrade, but the problem remained. Verizon will not replace the phone unless they can actually witness the problem.

I am out of warranty on my 8500, but the Verizon store gave me a grace period during which I can go back and show them the problem. Is there a reliable way to reproduce this?

Thanks for any sort of suggestions!

    Thank you very much for your suggestion. I was not able to reproduce the problem regardless of sensitivity settings. Looks like I'm hosed until my contract's up! :-(.

The only way to reproduce this i have seen is by maxing out the sensitivity on the touch sensors. This may get it to do that for you? Its the only way i can think of.
Good Luck!

How can I adjust the sensitivity of the touch screen? I end up dialing someone I don't intend to call instead of flicking the screen, or starting up an app instead of scrolling the screen. Thanks!


A lot of message boards suggest getting the privacy screen cover for the phone. It's pretty thick and reduces the sensitivity of the screen.

How do I activate the voice dial on my Nokia 6230i please?


At the menu screen,select menu and scroll down to contacts, hit select,then select names, find the number you want to add voice dial to, select details,select options,scroll down to "add voice tag" Hit select and follow the instructions.

One tip: when you program the voice call, you should be in the enviroment thet you usually use the voice dial. If you set it up in a quite place like your home and then try to use voice dial in a noisy place, it probably will not work. Also talking louder does not help.

Hope that helps. If not, you probably have a problem with the phone itself.

DROPPED PHONE NOT SURE WHAT I NEED


You can replace the lcd screen and digitizer.

Its about $40 US on ebay. Try searching treo 750wx screen/digitizer/touch screen, etc. Also i tried searching treo 750wx but it didn't work, I suspect the 750 to be the same as the wx, but you might wanna make sure with the seller incase (Ask seller a question link is on the listing, or click their username and go to their profile and click on contact)

The problem is the touch sensitve buttons. If you touch the call button just once, even if you are in a text it will make a call to the last person dialed.

The unlock button needs to be pressed once to end the call. This is quite annoying.

Try to be careful when texting, which is hard as the phone is very sensitive.
