    It is not a problem with the phone. It is a problem with the charger people are using. Are you using the charger that came with the phone or an aftermarket one?

    I'm using the Motorola charger that came with my phone so I have to respectfully disagree with your statement that it's not the phone. And since this is the 2nd phone and charger that I've had with the same issue it would seem to point to the phone hardware or the OS that is at issue. I've also tested this theory at my local VZ store and was able to reproduce it on 4 different phones. There's obviously an issue with the hardware or OS.

    Please don't use aftermarket chargers on your Droid. You will only make it mad and cause it to do bad things. First it will text and call people at random, then it may take more drastic measures. Please think of the children!

    Thanks for the heads' up. I won't buy one of those eVilbay chargers now.

    +1 droids are becoming self aware. The commercials were right, droid does. Does take over the world.

    Just thought I would add that I use a USB extension cable to make charging and using the phone at the same time bearable.

    It really sounds from the description that these are deliberately crafted chargers designed to control the phones maliciously, someone should bring one in to have it analyzed.

    Hey,

    first of all, open up another thread cuz i think its not belonging into this one.

    Then, if statet this long before, there is no need for a virus scanner.
    The ANDROID os is based on linux, which is relly close to linux. There are not much viruses for linux jet and even if there are, the virus would neet ROOT rights to apply, and DROID is not rootet yet.

    So just use your brain not going onto wild websites or clicking ANY links in ANY mails,

    that would do it

    hey some negative feedback

    maybe those who are buying these chargers off ebay and its screwing up their phone should leave negative or at least a neutral feedback to the seller. I checked the ebay charger link and after 34 pages of checking the review, not one negative or neutral review regarding the charger.

    Also, tigger, if the droid is linux, or like linux (its linux), and it cant get viruses, why would someone then have to worry about what site they go on? Either it can or cant get viruses. And if it can, then I dont see getting an antivirus is such a bad idea. I wont, but I can understand a persons desire for it.
