    When I touch the symbol key in any way, it scrolls through the symbol options. I don't even have to push the symbol key, it just registers my finger touches like the old trackpad would. Sounds crazy right? It's possessed! AIEEE!!!!!!!! This issue started about 2-3 days ago.

    Or is this some kind of update that I didn't know about? Any idea if this is software or hardware?

    my 9900 had a similar issue... not the symbol key but random scrolling. if I was texting, on a website, whatever, it would start randomly scrolling. not scrolling, darting around the page. I had to lock the phone and tap the trackpad kind of hard and roll it around to make it stop. possessed indeed.

    This happened to my first 9900. Vodafone replaced it, said it couldn't be repaired. I have heard that its caused by a dodgy connection with the trackpad onto the main board.

    OP, get your carrier to swap it out.

    Try this out:

    Go to options, typing and language, Keyboard, then currency key. Choose the currency and hopefully it does not scroll.

    If not, try a OS reload.

    This is a hardware problem Nadim, OS reload wont fix it. Some have taken the phone apart and changed the ribbon cable with success. As mine was under warranty, I sent it back.

    LOL I turned on the "keypress sound" option on my phone. You know the one where it beeps whenever you push a button? Well when you roll your finger on the symbol key, it beeps like crazy. hahaha

    Thanks for the tip. I will call Verizon and ask for a replacement.
