    They key to all this is to just stop using the qwerty keyboard. I ordered the Strat because my feature phone had a slider keyboard, and I liked it. However, after just a few days using the Strat's virtual keyboard with its predictive texting, I realized it was much easier to use, and I shouldn't have gotten the Strat. My biggest objections to the Strat are that it's thick and heavy. I have had none of the problems that I see mentioned on this forum and the VZW Android Community. I have only had one problem that was fixed only by doing a factory reset. I lost my email completely. I couldn't receive or send any emails from any of my accounts. I learned that the problem was caused by app killing software I installed.

    Its usually an easy fix. If you go into applications>manage applications>all then scroll down to android keyboard and clear the cache if its there, otherwise clear the cache on the samsung keypad further down. I had to disable then enable them both first in the language and keyboards menu. Hope this helps, a permanent fix would be nice.

    FIX (I hope): go into settings -> applications -> quick launch. press and hold the shortcuts that are lit up, and press "clear"

    I recently bought the Astone A108 media player with inbuilt Android 4.0.4 operating system. This meant I could surf the web on my big screen tv. My problem was the 'remote control' sized qwerty keyboard (Astone R3) air mouse was too small to use efficiently. Our local **** Smiths (Australia) was selling the Logitech K400R 'full sized' wireless keyboards for only $50.

    All was going well but every time I pressed the letter 'e' it would open a email setup program. B opened a browser and P open the media player. The physical keyboard would then become useless as no characters were appearing on the screen and I would have to use the frustrating 'Android Keyboard' (the whole point of buying the Logitech keyboard was to forget the on screen input method). This is well documented as an issue but everyone is saying 'you must be pressing the search button' (accidentally). This definitely wasn't the case for me. It is really annoying as I would have to power down the Astone A108 media player and that somehow reset the 'keyboard shortcuts'. All the forums are written for mobile phones using Android 4.0.4 and telling you to go to settings, applications and turn off the quick launch (not helpful to me as it didn't exist anywhere in my menus).

    To make things worse the Logitech support site only has a 'quick setup guide' for the older model K400 (no 'R'). The keys along the top of the model K400R are slightly different and you can probably guess what they do by looking at the icons on the keys i.e. volume mute, volume down and volume up. When I rung Logitech support they were no help and advised me to install their software 'Logitech Setpoint' to customise my keys.

    The point for my post? I found the solution and thought I would share with you. There are two keys 'F1' and 'F2'. There is a symbol of a box with an arrow going 'in' and one going 'out'. I found that when the email program was opening after pressing the letter 'e', all you have to do is press 'F1' and that turns off the keyboard shortcuts returning you to the normal keyboard input method.

    I saw a Google app called 'Null Input Method' which I will try next to see if that removes the Android (on screen) keyboard and I will be in heaven.

    cheers,
    Ray

    Can't address the charging issue, but if you read the the thread there are some suggestions that fix the e - email problem. For instance: go into Settings > Applications > Quick launch; press and hold the "e" shortcut and press "clear" to prevent Search+e from starting e-mail. Do likewise for other shortcut keys that are lit up.

    Tried everything listed on this page - still did not work. As a last ditch effort I shut the phone off, removed the battery, let it sit for about 10 seconds and reassembled. The keyboard now works. Also have had the same problem with camera from time to time - need to shut off, remove battery & card - some times more than once then it will work again. Hope this helps someone else.

    The actual answer to the question here!

    An easy fix! Goto: Settings,applications, then quick launch. Here the quick k eys can be changed or diabled by holding down the selection...the becomes self explanatory. I had to replace my phone once before figuring this one out! Stupid place to put this should be under keyboard settings!
