    Droid 2 Weird screen lock texts...?!!!

    I ordered the Droid 2 from VerizonWireless off their site received the phone and noticed that when I go to the lock screen I get messages like this:

    photo | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    They are pretty random and sometimes even threatening.

    Examples: "you have stolen this phone and it must be returned. You have been reported to Verizon and if not returned we will find you...because there's an app for that."

    "captain"

    "This phone is owned by "random name" call "number" to return immediately.

    (I have called a couple of these and they are legit with the name and number)

    Currently it is displaying "This phone belongs to Inah Me (phone number) if lost please call (phone number)

    I called tech support and they said that in 30 years of support they've never seen anything like it.

    We reset the phone back to stock default uninstalling everything on the phone.

    However, when I re-synced, and all the applications and accounts came back online so did the random texts.

    I believe some application is doing this that I have installed but which one and why?!

    IDEAS?! It's creepy, wacky, and cool.

    Maybe I have glitched the matrix and have access to random people's screen displays from around the world!

    BTW the phone numbers are from all different parts of the country if you were wondering.

    But seriously...HELP!

    List your apps, widgets, wallpapers, whatever.

    Reboot in safe mode and see if it still does it. It won't because it is almost certainly some app you installed.

    you could have just listed the apps you downloaded..not ALL the apps on your phone but ok lol.

    I would uninstall the Bolded ones unless they are system apps and not downloaded apps, the bold underlined one i have no idea what it is but if its an app from the market you should prob uninstall it.

    Yes I know but something malicious could have been there and I wouldn't even know it. Better safe than sorry.

    besides...I assume it would have been asked from me eventually

    what menu key are you speaking of?

    EDIT: oh you want to boot into safe mode, they have removed the menu key from the hardware keyboard on the D2 so i would try holding power and OK or power and Alt or power and the back arrow to see if they do anything. You should see safe mode written on the lower left of the screen if you boot into safe mode.
