    My Moto Droid seems to be possessed!! The screen started changing on its own and then it went into my contacts and made a call on its own!!! Pulled the battery and rebooted, unlocked on its own and again went into my contacts and made another call :icon_eek:. Sooooo, Pulled battery again and booted into recovery and restored to a previous date. Same thing!!! HELLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry, Should have stated what i am running. I am rooted and when this started i was running D1-MIUI-0.10.29-V6.X. I recovered back to BB V-5 and had the same issue. It almost seems like i am tapping on the screen!! Very weird. No recent apps! Hope i can get it back to stock if i need to take it in :icon_eek:
    I left the battery out for about 20 minutes and it seems to be OK. Hopefully anyway!! The other thing i noticed is my battery drained really fast when this started.

    Do you have either a task killer or an anti-virus app installed? If so, uninstall.

    I don't have either installed. I think i found the correct file to get it back to stock. " http://android.clients.google.com/pa...-ota-50454.zip" in case i need to take it back to Verizon! Also, Seems if i leave the Phone off for a while the issue stops! Overheating Maybe?

    Are you using a non-oem charger? This will cause many issues.

    I used one of those Portable battery packs last week while on Vacation. I think it was called a Veho or something like that. Didn't have any issue though until last night.

    Faulty battery pack is now acting up. I know that placing my phone on granite would also do that.

    I've been having the same problem on my stock Droid 2. It will just randomly start doing what it wants like someone else is using the phone while I'm trying to. I've tried deleting all apps and doing the factory data reset but it didn't help any. And I'm using the stock charger so that can't be the problem either

    HMMM. Well, i got it back to Stock and will take the poor thing into the doc this afternoon. Getting it booted and signing into google account was not easy with the screen hopping around lol lol.

    I had the problem last week after getting a greasy film on my screen from my hands. Touch screen started activating without me touching it, opening apps, and random clicking. This has happened about three times since I bought it. Would not stop until I cleaned the screen.

    your not alone a couple of days my droid started doing the same thing as well. I am running Stock 2.1 i didn't install any software or updates that I know of before this started happening. I even shut off my wiFi & cell service to see if someone was hacking into my phone. But it bypasses and connects to whatever it wants internet & making phone calls even when I have those services turned off. It even tried to buy Tetris out of the market place. It got to the confirmation page before I got the battery out. It seems a bit fishy that all of a sudden multiple people are having the same issue. I am going be a Verizon store in the morning to see what they have to say about it.

    Sounds like a club is forming. I had the same issue and there is another thread with the same issues "phantom screen touches " or something close. I had run several ROMS the last being LFY 1.8 which was buggy. I went to stock 2.2 and even formatted my SD card. That helped a lot but still had occasionally phantom touches. I just got a referb under warranty and so far its flawless. Same SD card but I haven't transferred all files back yet. All I can think of is that I removed a screen protector just before it first started. The SD card was looking like the problem but it just seemed to reduce the frequency of the wierdness. Also just got a new battery and went through 1 charge and drain cycle with the old phone. Some improvement from old battery but not much.
    Now with the referb I have 8.5 hours at 50% with an hour of phone calls and almost 2 hours of screen on. Crazy better than the old phone/new battery. I got about 8 hours of moderate use with the old phone /battery. The referb looks very good but the slider is kinda loose. I can live with that if this battery use keeps up. So far so good with the screen thing. Anyone who is having this prob had a screen protector???

    Something like that can be attributed to a faulty digitizer. The good news is that if the phone is less than a year old it's still under Motorola warranty. Warranty = free replacement.

    Both my droids have done this sort of thing, opening contacts, opening voice command menu, etc, a couple times over the last 2 months. I'm rooted, the wife is not.

    Very random, intermittent and strange. Each time I've seen it start up, grabbing the phone and tapping home a few times stopped the activity without any further trouble.
