    So I am texting someone on my phone, and the keys go crazy like they sometimes do.. i just backed up a few times and got finished... then this is where it gets weird.... my ohone all by itself, went to the home screen.....dropped the notification bar down...and i saw voicemail clicked and started to call voicemail. I was tripping out.. so i immediately turned the phone off and did a factory reset. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Ot is remote control even possible?

    The key is in what you started with... Your keys go crazy texting... If that is happening then something is messed up with your keyboard app, and it sounds like it was injecting keystrokes into the keyboard buffer. Software that is designed to test other software can do that and simulates a person doing different actions on a keyboard. So, at least its possible that your keyboard app is buggy and that's what causing it. Or its possible that some other app is misbehaving and sending keystrokes. Yes, remote control is possible, but might not be the most likely explanation.

    Was it plugged into the charger at the time?? Ghost typing is a common problem with phones plugged into power supplies, especially ones that weren't supplied with the phone by the manufacturer. Poor power regulation and RF interference confuses the digitizer causing it to read screen presses where there are none. Also since capacitance based touch screens are affected by moisture, if it's used in a high humidity environment (or gets wet, especially along the edges), it can also respond with ghost typing.

    Were there any black helicopters following you? They are watching you.

    LoudRam, you need to be careful! If C.O.N.T.R.O.L. finds out about FoxKat's cover being blown then they will release the Skynet O.S. onto our phones!!

    Aliens from another planet have infiltrated your bionic as a way to manipulate your thoughts! They want to use you as a means to get to all of us!!!!

    That or your bionic is just messed up, its hard to say.

    Did you have headphones plugged in when it happened? My wife was complaining that when she was watching Netflix with her headphones it would try to call her mom. I later borrowed her headphones to watch Netflix and the same thing happened to me. Only thing I can think of.

    Were you hands wet or any water on the screen?

    I had the same issue when I loaded ICS .2233. I attributed it to something funky in SwiftKey 3. I uninstalled and re-installed SwiftKey 3, rebooted, and it's worked properly ever since. And now that I'm at ICS .230, I haven't seen the issue.
