I've had my latest palm-style PDA for about 18 months now. It's a Kyocera Palm-phone combo for use with the SprintPCS network.
My graffiti writing has always been really clean - I usually only pick up one or two incorrect letters when I write a full sentence.
Lately I'm finding that I have to write and rewrite and rewrite a single letter in order for the device to recognize anything. For example, I'll write an "E" and nothing shows up, so I rewrite it (nothing) and rewrite it (nothing) and rewrite it and get either an "E" or a "C."
I do NOT consider myself a heavy user ... I don't write much at all, and I've taken really good care of this device. Plus when I'm not using it, the screen is covered with hard plastic which protects it from accidental damage.
Given that, could there be something else wrong, or is the graffiti area simply getting worn out and coming to the end of its useful life span?
HG, there's no way that 18 months of light use has worn out your Graffiti area. I agree with 4eyes, it's probably hardware failure of some kind. Check your warranty, although you've probably owned it long enough to be past the coverage date. If you got it through a cell service provider, see if they have any kind of blanket warranty coverage or other offer that would soften the blow of full-cost replacement.
