    Someone Has Control of my Droid

    At first I thought I was going nuts as it seemed my phone would switch screens and do "weird" stuff. This morning my music started playing and when I went to shut it off the screens kept changing so I couldn't stop it. When I opened applications to start deleting files that I had recently downloaded, the screen kept scrolling up and down to prevent me from deleting apps.

    Anyone else have this and know which app I may have downloaded? I've recently dowloaded DirecTv, On The Fly Backup, mSpot.

    I'm probably going to do a hard reset and try to get rid of them.

    Thoughts?

    Sounds like a rouge app and not "someone"......
    A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

    Was it plugged in? Are you using the OEM charger? There are many known cases of this happening while plugged into 3rd party chargers.

    It was initially plugged into the stock android dock but continued even after I had taken it out.

    Aftermarket battery charger will do this too.
    OG Droid retired but serving as a wireless tablet now and then.

    Heat sensitive

    My son's phone(not a Droid) had the same issue with the phone doing strange things while just sitting. I watched it myself. It would select screen, go to certain applications, etc.
    The person at Verizon(the actual store, not a 3rd party store which is a joke) told us that the phone is heat sensitive and this may be what is causing it.
    He got a replacement and not having the same issue.
    May be the same with the Droid? I know mine gets somewhat warm at times.

    Not sure if it's a heat issue but I know it's a pain in the a**. Decided to get a replacement. Keeping my fingers crossed that I won't have the same issue with the next one.

    I've seen the same problem before. My friend kept his phone inhis pocket. The moisture and heat made it act like that. Do you keep it in your pocket?
