    I live in Chicago and (big surprise) it's super windy today. The touch typing function is hardly responding today. Can anyone think of a reason why wind might make the touch screen unresponsive? I have a really steady grip on the phone. It is taking *forever* to type anything. Anyone else notice this behavior? I know it's a weird problem.

    The wind shouldn't have any effect on the typing.

    I have had that same sort of thing happen with mine though. Have you tried resetting the phone by holding the menu and power buttons? That usually clears up mine when it starts acting sluggish or funny.

    Yes. That is the first thing I tried. Only happens outside in this ridiculous wind. I guess I should just go back inside. :rolleyes: I still think it's weird. Not a huge problem. Just annoying.

    maybe it has something to do with the temperature of the wind instead of the wind itself.
