    Touch screen is freaking out

    My Droid 1 seems to get possessed usually within 1-5 minutes after booting up.

    Its like someone is touching the screen all over and typing.

    I tried factory wiping and installing fresh roms and I tried restoring other states that worked fine.

    None of this worked.

    There was no physical damage done to the phone and this problem seemed to come from nowhere.

    Does anyone know what the problem could be?

    I can only use my phone for like a minute then this problem starts.

    ya i feel like it may be a hardware issue since it it happening regardless of what rom i'm running.

    If that's the case do you know if verizon will replace it? Can I use my insurance to replace it or will they not allow me to because I rooted.

    This is really important I can't use my phone so please help me people

    Hmmm

    I think i may have fixed it.

    I did 5 data wipes and I installed GPA15

    I still can't type with the on screen keyboard because there are dead spots that don't work for some reason.

    I think it may be time for a new phone.

    This is annoying.

    Yea.. if you have insurance you can definitely can a replacement. I did that like two times. Don't worry about the root.. just let them know your screen is not responding.. Best of luck

    The same problem happened to my D1 last week!! Your digitizer has broken. The only solution is to replace it or buy a new phone (If you do a search on "Droid" and "digitizer" you will find many people who have had this same problem)

    I researched repair stores and finally settled on a place called Mission Repair in KS (www.mission repair.com). Sent my precious Droid to them on Tuesday and got it back as good as new on Friday for a cost (including Fedex) of around $90 - certainly a lot cheaper than a new phone.

    If you have insurance, shouldve just said you lost it and paid the $50
    Just a thought

    $90 is more than the insurance deductable so i would be better off getting a replacement than repairing.

    However, verizon insurance (ensorion or something) raised my deductible from $50 to $80 so i feel like i'm better off putting that $80 towards a new phone than getting a refurbished D1.

    I know new **** is coming out but in this game every phone is obsolete in 4 months any way so there is no point waiting for the tegra/bionic. The thunderbolt has plenty of features and it may be the last droid with an unlocked bootloader so i'm gonna just go with that.
