    This is actually my 2nd phone. First one had a mic issue. I noticed that when I have a charger plugged into the phone, the phone's touch screen starts "tweeking" on me. By tweeking I mean:

    If I long press an app to move it around on the home screen it starts flickering around as if I was multitouching. I know it has something to do with the charger being plugged in to it, since I tested by plugging and unplugging the charger and it didn't do it when no power was supplied.

    Also I have tested multiple chargers so I know it isn't the charger.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Uh huh. Is one of them the Motorola charger which came with the Droid? Is is plugged into regular house AC, not a generator or inverter?

    Yeah, my droid bugs out too when plugged in via verizon micro-usb charger, and also the usb that comes with it. It's as if the screen becomes super sensitive when plugged in.

    Motorolla recommends that you only use the charger and usb provided.

    However, if you test it, it still doesn't work like when it does without being plugged in.

    It's a design flaw, albeit a minor one.

    If you need super fine control, I just unplug it real quick.

    I have the same problem. Sometimes it will do it without a charger plugged in (maybe 1 out of 1000 uses).

    I found out, Im using a generic universal laptop cord, and when the laptop is plugged in using that, i guess it produces noise in the power and causes it, because it I run off battery or ac wall plugin, works just fine. just my 2 cents.

    So, has anyone come up with a cure for this? I bought a used Droid a855 and didn't come with a charger, so i have to deal with aftermarket chargers. My car charger works good but when i plug in a home charger, it starts going through and running my applications.

    Fine idea if i want to keep spending money, but my chargers worked fine at the start. I don't want to go buy another just for it to do the same thing a month later.

    I was fortunate and I had enough chargers I could test until I found one that did not cause my Droid to tweak. It was an LG charger with an extra long cord. I actually noticed more more of an issue when docked (magnet).
