    LOL. 100% of the Q10s that I have owned have required multiple keyboard replacements in less than a year.
    Unfortunately, like most people here I have owned one.
    A colleague of mine, who lives in the same climate, bought one around the same time and has not experienced the issue.

    Just like I said, it's a hit or miss with that I guess.

    It was a problem with the 9900 as well.
    I had my 9900 for 2 years then I gave it to my buddy to use and he's still using it today and no double typing issue on that phone at all.

    My Q10 is double typing a lot now, fortunately auto-correct catches most of it.

    I never had a problem with mine. Just remember, there are people with this problem. The first thing they do is come here and post that they have that problem. So you will see posts about it. But everyone else that isn't experiencing this problem will not post on how theirs doesn't double type.

    In my opinion as i type on my tippy toes, the q-10 is the only os10 device getting.

    Saigon! And then Nha Trang for a bit too. Where you from?

    About buying a local sim, what phone company will give me the best data performance? Thanks a lot!

    Posted via CB10
    I'm an American living here in Sai Gon with my Vietnamese wife. Love it..

    We have 3G here, not 4G and its spotty at best so be prepared to be frustrated..lol..(its not that bad, just not Western standards)
    I use Viettel. Theyre the biggest here (govt owned of course). But their good. You will need to get a Viettel SIM, then buy the Data via a scratch card (100,000 VND, or 5 USD) Have someone help you get it started.

    PM me if you have any other questions Im in Saigon too. Nha Trang is beautiful too...

    Im really thinking about buying a Q10, but Ive heard so much about the double typing issue Im hesitant.

    I will be buying an International model from outside my home country of Vietnam as the price here is still way too high. So i dont think it'll have a warranty.

    Go for it or its a real problem?
    3 Q10's, no problems.

    At the risk of jinxing my Q10, no issues to date: had since about July 2013.

    OP, there is no telling whether you will get a Q10 free of issues. I can say that I do not think the problem is as pervasive as you'd think even though there seems to be many people complaining about the issue. After all, no one is really starting threads discussing not having typing issues when the forums are above all else, meant to help users fix problems they may have.

    As with any device, you run the risk of getting one that has some issue. I'm sure that is of no comfort, but that is the reality.

    I don't think you need to worry about it.
    Because the keyboard can be replaced if you meet the problem. Just go online and buy q10 housing part,just replace it.

    Posted via CB10
    Not as easy as it sounds. Parts will have to be bought overseas, then shipped (1 month), then taxed. Not worth the hassle, thus my question...appreciate the thought though..thanks

    That's true, but there is a definite trend here and it would be very difficult for me to replace parts/phone where I live.

    I have had 2 personal Q10s, one Black and one White and I have a Q10 on BES from work and have never had a single issue with any of them. I feel bad for the people that do. It seems there's a general theme though. It's never people who just use their phone out of the box and stay on the carrier OS and stick to BlackBerry World apps. Most of the people with keyboard issues get them after autoloaders, leaks, sachesi, etc. It's kind of weird if you ask me.

    I can only highly recommend the phone as I never had any issues and continue to use one for work today and hammer 200 emails, 200 texts, and about 150 BBMs a day.

    Hmm I hope using Snap does not cause it because I don't use leaks or any other things you mentioned but I still need some Android apps.

    Two months and still no double typing issue for me.

    Also, kind of ironic you posted here on your Z30. Haha

    Well, it looks like, post my comment above, the dreaded double type issue has surfaced. I KNEW I shouldn't have responded to this topic! Jinxed the darned phone. Will have to get a replacement. As an aside, I do miss the keys on the PD 9981.
