Hi all, hopefully someone here can help.
Today, the screen on my Moto Droid started acting up (non-rooted, 2.2 for a few days with no major issues until now). I noticed it when I went to use the pattern to unlock the screen and it took me 4 or 5 tries for it to recognize the simple pattern. Once in, it seemed fine for a quick glance at email. Next time I opened it was after getting a spam text message, something about "thanks for visiting our site, here's a walmart coupon..." (did not download any files or visit any links). Immediately following that, the phone seemed like it was trying to reply to that message by itself. I don't think it would even let me out to the home screen, so I shut it off.
After rebooting, it was randomly selecting icons. It does it on all parts of the screen; pulls up the browser, pulls down the notifications bar, opens gallery, etc.
I've tried pulling the SD card, using a different SD card, removed the screen protector, and lastly a factory reset which did not fix the issue.
Am I risking anything by trying to reset to 2.1? I can take it by the verizon store tomorrow to see what they can do, but I absolutely hate that place (30 minutes away, and usually 45-60minute waits)
