    I bet the RAZR would be a great phone in the powder. Mt Hood still not open

    Alright, so from what I'm gathering from you guys, maybe I should keep the phone in a mitten, or somesort of woven container. My fingers usually get numb from being so cold, so I thought maybe it was the phone not picking up the heat from my fingers.

    Ill try to get some rice to get the condensation out this weekend. This just confuses me since I don't have any problems when I'm indoors, or just outside, not running.
    If you need any help, feel free to PM me, I'm glad to help where I can!

    I have problems with my touchscreen in the cold. Things are randomly selected, and I can't do anything.

    I have experienced touchscreen problems durring spring/summer months when my phone was in my jeans pocket. Humidity/moisture was the only thing I came up with. If anything the cold is good for electronics think heat sincs and cryo coolers...

    Just to wrap this thread up, the problem went away. It was caused by my fingers being too cold.

    FYI, Droid 2 Global does fine in -20 degrees (windchill factored in). Took it climbing with me in White Mountains on Christmas Eve, summit attempt of Mt. Avalon+1 un-named mountain. Worked well enough to take several pictures and held signal for the whole trip. Note that we were below the treeline for much of it though. Only observed issues were touchscreen blurring and harsh battery drop about 4 hours into the trip. This is why you keep it in a pocket inside your water/windproof shell, under a down piece. I accidentally left it in an outside pocket.

    Best part though: someone's iPhone shut down about halfway through it.

    I got a pair of these for my BDAY this week. Work amazingly well! Very precise and still can't get over I can use a touchscreen with them.

    Now - the con: They make everything a little slippery: Steering Wheels, PHONES, etc.

    Mine plays up in the cold (runs weeeeell slow).

    The screen goes bonkers as well, but it's due to humidity and condensation.
