    There's a nice little garden centre next to North Dulwich Station at the top of Half Moon Lane.

    It's on the big screen at Broadgate and they have free beer samplers (it might be some type of shandy I skipped it) and icecream and stuff. :)

    WTF - has this been going on throughout the tour?

    I would drink the free stuff just for the sake of it.

    I'm on 4.4.2 which I thought was the most up to date version. Never had any issues with it until today.

    Looking through the Google Support forum, this problem is not limited to me and there doesn't appear to be much in the way of a solution. Will probably end up buying a new phone.

    Scratch the above - the soft keys have stopped working in landscape.

    I think he meant he'd switched it off and on again, like that's a valid IT solution.

    Switch off and on is about the best my IT department come up with usually.

    Anyway, back to the problem at hand - I have hard reset the phone. That is, I have done a full wipe and reset.

    The soft keys still do not work. However, since the reset landscape soft keys are working which they weren't before.

    I am on stock and was considering a full wipe - everything is backed up so no major issues in terms of content.

    I haven't removed all apps to try that yet but have tried safe mode to no avail.

    How do i do that then?

    Yep.

    Tried reset, safe mode and per the latest comment on that link (I have posted on there too!) tried the developer mode.

    My touches in developer mode seem to be registering a touch on or about the soft icons. However, I am still able to open Google Now holding down the home button and dragging up. I dont think this is a hardware issue.

    All three soft keys have packed up on my Nexus 4. It's a bloody pain as I have to switch the phone off to change apps at the moment. Doesn't appear to be hardware related as the middle "home" button if held still takes me to Google Now.

    Anybody else come across this and/or got a solution that doesn't involve buying a new phone?

    Looking through that list makes you realise how few places I have actually been to. Anyway, I get 10:

    Bolton
    Preston
    Rotherham
    Walsall
    Tottenham
    Upton Park
    Man Utd
    Charlton
    West Brom
    Everton

    Of that lot - Upton Park is hallowed ground. Everton is quality as an away supporter. Special mention to West Brom - had some quality days there too.
