    Rogue Droid - HUGE ISSUE!!!!

    Ok, so my motorola droid made me think I was losing my mind, without a doubt. Why?

    Wednesday morning I wake up around 5am, go to the bathroom, on the way back by I notice my phone is lit up and surfing the web. WHAT?????? it is on face book, on the registration page. I pick up the phone, unplug and start looking. It has responded to an email to 15 of my coworkers with a blank body message. It has attempted to send 3 or 4 text messages, they are marked as drafts.....

    Ok, I am known to sleep walk and start to blame myself.

    Thursday night into Friday morning. 3am our dog wakes me up, I go to get back in bed and realized the phone is lit up and panning through home pages. WTF!!!!!!!!! I look, 4 missed calls, 4 new texts. I start looking and the phone called my parents, my neighbors, a client, has again attempted to send text messages, and has sent a blank email to one of my other email accounts.

    I made my wife look at it, she agreed something was going on and that I was not sleep walking and that I was not crazy. My neighbor and parents are freaked out thinking we are being robbed or something. My neighbor walks over to check on the house, nothing going on. My dad said that it sounded like my son had the phone pushing buttons.

    I download a droid virus scanner thinking someone is hacking my phone at night or something. No viruses. Ok, maybe magnets for the dock and something related to my dresser, I move to an end table.... same thing. I noticed with it plugged in the buttons at the bottom (back, menu, home etc) do not work properly, its more like touch gestures in the screen. My wife asks me, which charger is that... uh oh its the new one. I put the one that came with the phone back in and it works fine. So I take the "bad" charger up to the office and plug the phone in. Go back downstairs to get coffee, come back up again and the phone (the devil ) has decide to repeatedly launch this new virus scan application.



    SO............... this charger is causing this phone to do some really really really odd stuff. Call people, send emails, send txt messages etc. I bought a pack of charger/case on ebay for like 6 bucks. Just to give something to put the phone in on my side until seidio comes out with cases. I used this charger because it has a longer cord than the factory one.

    I guess BE CAREFUL OF AFTERMARKET ACCESSORIES. Anyone else find this really odd?

    haha I cant help but laugh at this, Im glad you did narrow it down to the charger. Do you have a name of the charger or a link to where you bought it? I'd buy it just to test it and have fun.

    2 CHARGER+CABLE+EVA CASE FOR VERIZON Motorola Droid - eBay (item 180431028853 end time Dec-10-09 11:34:55 PST)

    No need to buy it, if you want it I will send it to you on my dime. No way in hell is that thing getting plugged back up. Can you imagine it launching emergency mode and dialing 911? cops showing up, kicking door in etc?

    I had ALL of the same symptoms that I narrowed down to the same cheap eBay charger after Verizon replaced the phone.

    What is the chargers input/out put rated at? Just curious what the hell is causing this.

    I just dont see that input/output being a problem, there has to be something else going on inside that charger...lol or the Droid!
