Long Press Problem


Dec 7, 2009
I have noticed the long press no longer working. When I press and hold it will perform a short press. For example, when trying to long press on an icon to move it, it will open the application. I have noticed this only when charging the device. Anyone else have notice this strange behavior?

I'm having this issue now also, although mine happens all the time and not jsut while charging. I've had to power off and on 3 or 4 times in the last day. not sure if it was an app I downloaded that is causing this, but I have tried uninstalling everything I've put on the phone in that time frame and it's still coming back.

Any thoughts on what might be causing this?
