    My Drizzy Droid gotta virus.. i think

    My droid is actin like a real bish and clickin on stuff and moving the screen, calling voicemail and people without me even touching anything. I called Verizon, they made me reset the phoen back to factory and i still does the same thing. could it be i have a virus? I was charging it at work thru the computer , the pc got a virus so i guess it spread to my drizzy, is there a way to get a anti virus scan ran on my droid?

    You don't have a Virus. What you have is a warranty. Use it. If a factory data reset didn't fix it, there has to be a problem.

    Just out of curiosity do you use a different charger then the one that came with your Droid? I've heard of strange behavior like this when plugged into chargers that were not up to speed.

    uh oh. I should be careful then. I've been using different chargers that didn't come with my droid for the last few weeks. So far, I have not encountered any problems but it's better to be safe then sorry.

    Well, charge it with the proper charger and see if that doesn't cure this bazaar behavior.

    I think there were reports of it acting funny only when the phone was actually plugged in to some chargers. If you're not actually charging and it still happens then that's not the problem.

    You're hands aren't wet, are they?

    You should try booting into safe mode. If it still happens then I guess you need a new one. If safe mode fixes it then it's one of your apps causing problems.

    Wow, that's some spooky stuff. Pull the battery, you're without a phone until Wednesday it looks like.
