Search Softkey...always activating by accident
For the most part dig the Fascinate, don;t appreciate that I am always activating the search softkey - accidentally. Seems my palm always brushed that darn key and then I am stuck in the search screen.
I know, that should handle phone differently..but have not been able to do so...darn it!
Does anyone know how that button can be temp. disabled or made less sensitive etc.? Or any ideas??

I ended up putting a silicone case on mine to help with just the general wear and tear. In doing that there is a lip on the edge that helps keep my hand/fingers/thumbs off the search key.
Like NickA I got accustomed to attending to where and how my hand was possitioned and I rarely activate it now.Confucius: “Never use a cannon to kill a fly.” - Take off and nuke it from orbit.. ~~^^~~

I have a screen protector (the zagg kind) and it's still pretty easy to hit the search softkey on accident. The protector on the back cover made a huge difference in the way i hold the phone, though. Since it's got some tack to it I find that I no longer grip the phone for dear life; typing can take place with a relaxed hand, and i don't hit the search key on accident nearly as much as i used to.

I've had this happen to me a few times, but it's never been a major annoyance. If it's happening to you a lot, I'd suggest some sort of case like the others. A lot of them cover up enough space at the bottom that it makes it more difficult to accidentally hit one of the softkey buttons at the bottom.

I bought this one for my Fascinate. Don't be fooled by the low price, this thing was surprisingly of high quality. I'd recommend checking it out.
