    I haven't seen a charging problem. What is the bezel? I'll try it tonight and see. Btw, I don't use aftermarket chargers, cases of any kind, or screen protectors.

    The bezel, the part surrounding the screen (the part that isn't glass). It's metal, and although it appears painted, it still seems to conduct electricity, which seems to be what the screen needs while charging.

    I think there is a grounding problem with the screens, and it manifests in one of two ways, depending on the specific phone.

    I used a USB cigarette lighter adapter to charge my previous Droid, but I am using a 110V inverter in the car for this one to make sure that isn't what caused my previous problems (still can't see how it would affect the touchscreen, but whatever). I used a magnetic case for my Droid (my old AT&T Tilt case) for the first two or three days until I found a velcro case at Wal-Mart. I have never used screen protectors with my Droids (what's the point if the screen is glass? It's more likely to break than scratch, and a screen protector won't stop breakage).

So far since rebooting it last night it hasn't happened again but I'm just waiting for it to.

    I only have ever used the official car charger and official cradles to charge it. i did have an official screen protector on it until yesterday when I ripped it off in frustration. That didn't make any difference though.

    Apps I have installed are the swype beta (latest version as of a couple weeks ago), audiomanager, newsrob, verizon fios dvr, mototorch, shopsavvy, weatherbug elite, snesoid, handcent sms, astro file manager, voice recorder, kewels, barcode scanner, free advanced task killer (don't use it for automatic killing), missed call, calwidget, stopwatch, remote vnc w/ad, sportstap, quick profiles, 3d level, corporate directory, solitare, notepad, battle.net authenticator, ringdroid, netmeter, any cut, meebo im, and appsinstaller

    edit: not running froyo. On 2.1 that was installed from google download (as opposed to OTA).
    My droid continues to do this off an on since June now. It seems to happen more so on hot days after my phone has been in my pocket. So it seems humidity plays a factor.

    I advise you to do something sooner rather than later. Mine was off and on, until one (humid, of course) day, when I couldn't even accept phone calls. Even when I got my replacement the next evening, I still couldn't use the other phone. I didn't think that Verizon would be so willing to replace it, or I would have done it sooner. Maybe this problem is occurring more than we can imagine?

    My D1 did the same thing as you described.

    The screen would dance back and forth like your finger was on the touch screen and the second issue was refusing to recognize the charger.

    I ended up having to get a replacement from vzw. This was after a full factory reset back to day one. (power off. hold "x" key and power on. Will bring into reset) and also having vzw update the firmware.

    Worked fine till I went swimming with it in my pocket - DOH!! I now have a D2. Much better voice quality and OS than D1.

    Interesting. How do you figure the OS is better?

    Maybe OS is the wrong term, how about operating environment. Subjectively my D2 "seems" to go from app to app and overall function much more smoothly. It is a feel more than an measurable value.

    That's because the hardware in the droid 2 is better.

    So i am having a screen freak out issue. not sure why it started. i woke up with it in my bed and it has been whacky since. i have also noticed that when its hot it jumps around. i have cooled it down using a cold water bottle and it seems fine.

    i am going to experiment with this. i am also going to try and absorb any possible moisture that might be trapped in there.

    it sure is some weird and wild stuff.

    Of the three droids we have in our house two have had issues mine and my moms, hers acted like it was possessed and would go into menus randomly call people, get on the internet everything all while you are holding the phone not touching any buttons.

    If it doesn't get better in a couple of days i would take it to verizon it should be covered under manufactures warranty
    Same here, mine had to be replaced. You can try putting it in a container of rice for a few hours to possibly dry it out. Can't hurt to try it before getting it replaced. My replacement is a piece of junk. It does not play well if rooted.
