    Power the phone down -- pull the battery if you have to -- and put your finger across the top. When I say top I mean the part with the ear speaker. Put your finger across that. Now power the phone up and keep your finger there till the home screen/lock screen appears.

    No idea what rooting is or the running Stock ROM... I am using the standard texting offered via Droid, the one that came with the phone. I have never switched texting applications, always have used the default messaging that came on the phone.

    I am not sure if it happened after an upgrade, it has been going on for a least a month or two. I have just been dealing with it but now I am just getting sick of it. My contacts dont have the same phone numbers and it only opens existing threads, so if I click on a text thread with Person A it will open an already existing text thread with another person, and the text thread it opens is totally random, sometimes its the 2nd or 3rd convo, sometimes its the 9th or 11th.

    I guess I will take it to verizon and see what they can do. My phone also does that thing where when I type in a name to send a text it types it in the wrong order but I dont do that much so its not a big deal.

    Before you do, try the prox reset suggested above. If it keeps you from having to replace your phone it's worth it, no?

    I tried the prox reset and it is still mistyping? Maybe I did not do it right but I dont think it has anything to do with how my keyboard is working maybe not though?

    If it's the hardware keyboard you might have a sticking d-pad. If it's the software keypad it's a screen/proximity sensor issue.

    I should have asked this first -- hardware or soft keboard?

    If it's the hardware keyboard then try rolling the d-pad around a few times, see if it's sticking.

    Then I'd say you're starting to get a digitizer fail. You'll have to take it to Verizon and show them the issue. On the plus side if you can't get a satisfactory D1 refurb you'll get a new D2 (most likely phone for an upgrade).

    I would try the following and after each option see if your results work:

    Option #1:
    Click on:
    <setting> <applications> <manage applications> <all> <messaging> <clear data>

    Option #2:
    I would try installing Handcent from the app market and see if your results are different.

    Option #3:
    Backup and restore your text messages using a tool such as My Backup Pro (or some other tool). I have seen problems go away with this solution.

    Option #4:
    Delete all SMS/text threads and follow option #1.
    Note: Obviously this clears out all of your text messages.

    Have ur phone checked out by Verizon? I've been having the same problem at random times. I thought, at first, I was clicking the wrong person. Wondering if there's anything I can do besides taking into a Verizon store. Ugh!

    Droid Incredible... also not rooted. SMS that the phone came with.

    Factory reset that may not solve the issue, or a good screen-cleaning and prox reset.
