    My girlfriend noticed that the R key doesn't "expand/zoom" when you press it like the other buttons do (when typing in Safari). All of the other keys seem to work just fine, it's only the R that doesn't. I reset my phone and thought that'd help but it didn't. And my phone isn't jailbroken or anything, I keep it updated with the latest version as well.

    Any ideas?

    When you type the key, the flag doesn't show up but the letter still types?
    Mine is the same way only the "I" key is the problem.

    I've noticed the same problems, but with random letters. It seems the longer I type the more letters stop working properly. Sometimes up to five or so letters at a time. It's really annoying.

    Unfortunately she figured it out yesterday because on Friday we were in St. Louis, where the nearest Apple store is! If I had known about it and that it was an issue for several other people, then I would have brought it to their attention and hoped to get a replacement, (there are a few other things that I could probably get a new one for anyways).

    This is a software issue and you won't get a replacement for it. Now my "I" key works, but the "T" key is on the fritz.

    Restoring doesn't help, it's a 2.2 bug, it's pretty random on mine, even after many restores, it's usually the S, sometimes other letters or all of them. Since it bugs me so much and I just got another new phone as a replacement for quality control related issues, I'm keeping 2.0.2, felt faster and safari felt even snappier/more stable till now, didn't really get to test it well enough though. Waiting for 2.3 or 2.2.1, whichever comes first.
    I did also report the bug on the apple support site, you should probably do the same. 2.2 has the suckiest safari for me:)

    It's definitely a 2.2 bug. Switch to the "123" section of the keyboard and back... then the letters will pop up again. This is the only solution that I found that works. Don't restore or return your iPhone... it's not going to help.

    Sorry, I don't even have an R "key"....I just have electronic images of letters/symbols.

    Are you referring to "keys" on a BlackBerry?

    Yeah I'm sure they were. You know, since this is a Blackberry forum and all...
