could she try a new keyboard and write in portrait, see if the error persists?

Same thing here, but the period button registers, 99% of the time, as a space. I reset my phone, it fixed it, but the problem is coming back. Idk what the problem is.

she just called me and said it got fixed by some sudden update while she was connected to the net. I wonder if it was specific to her previous version.

You can check what version of Android by going into phone information.

Yea that's what I would of suggested. If you haven't updated the phone, go to settings, about, software update. Or if anything like that happens whee the phone glitches randomly and your not comfortable rooting the device, reset factory settings. Although you would lose the data, but as long as its set up in settings and contacts are synced its only a ten minute process to restore.

Yeah im on my second sgs3 and I'm not a big fan of touch wiz. If I could go back and get another phone it would be the DROID dna(if I had Verizon). But I'm still happy with my choice even though it often studers in games and just scrolling and playing with the screen. Btw has anyone here dropped there sgs3 jw?

Mine stutters and slows down when scrolling too. When I got the updated Jelly bean update, it fixed the issues for a while and then they came back. I guess it is just like a pc... it slows down over time.

Anyone know if other Android phones do the same? Particularly the Droid DNA, Razr HD Maxx, and HTC One X.

Non removable battery FTL. Sense is even worse than TouchWiz. Yes, dropped my S3 many times.

Android isn't like Windows, it's completely modular. Something is hogging your CPU or RAM (probably CPU, you've got a whopping 2gb of RAM). Anything will stutter a little while scrolling. But it suffers from none of the same perforamnce killing problems of PCs.

Wish I never dropped my phone though anyone know where you can buy the glass and that bumper part that goes around it? The scratch I got isn't that bad but my ocd is killing me...
