    Touchscreen going crazy while outside the house

    Ok so I have been having this problem for a few days now.

    I live in South Carolina, and right now it is hot as hell and very VERY humid.

    I work outside for most of the day doing these jeep tours in Myrtle Beach. People are always late so I have to call them, but the past few days I have been unable to.

    Basicaly after being outside for about 1-2 hours, my phone is unusable. All because of the touch screen. I can barely unlock the touch screen without the phone spazzying out, moving all over the screen, touching things I didnt touch. ALso barely responding to anything I do on the screen.

    What I found is that the screen often goes un-usable after one touch, so I have to turn screen off and on for every single screen press. Very annoying.

    Today it was so bad I couldnt even place a phone call.

    Any ideas?

    at least it isn't just me i have the same issue. i thought it was my phone that was acting up (like about to kick the bucket) but apparently not??

    i also would like to know what to do other than flash these other two roms i just downloaded. (which i would rather not bc i love pe) ive been waiting to try the new version 6.5 but i cant have a phone that's un-usable either.

    Some how I don't think its the rom. My wifes phone gets posessed and the only thing she can do to correct it is pull the battery and let it sit for a while. She's still on pe 4.1 and had zero issues with it until recently with the wacked out screen. I'm thinking its the digitizer going bad. You can pick them up on ebay fairly cheap with the tools to replace it. $25 maybe.

    Ok do you think my bottom soft key lights being out except for one is related? Will replacing the digitizer fix those also? Do you have to pull entire phone apart to replace or can you pry from front or something?

    TBH I'm not sure about the install. I haven't tried it yet. It comes with the tools to split the front panel apart. Don't think it will fix the back lighting as the digitizer is just the clear panel that fits on top of the lcd screen.

    Not the answer I wanted lol. I was hoping it would fix my lighting issue also. Well idk if its worth buying a $30 part and take the chance of breaking my phone or just a used phone? It only does it if the phone is in my pocket for a period of time then I have to take batt out for like 1hr or so then reboot it. I believe that it may not be the rom but mine didn't start doing this until I flashed pev6 but it also does it with other roms now so it can't be the rom. Digitizer sounds like it could be the issue.

    I'm in the same position. I have some pixels going bad, wifes phone is possesed and it $100 per phone to turn it into an insurance claim and god know what phone they'd end up giving me. So, I'm playing the waiting game. They gave my line an early upgrade and I'm going to try to talk them into doing it for my wifes and then hopefully the phones last long enough for another worth phone to upgrade to.

    I was going to unroot and do a claim and try to get the same phone but my droid is the one that has the rised button keyboard and I doubt I would get the rised one back! I hate the flat keyboard that's what's holding me back from doin it.
