1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    A good friend of mine passed away on Tuesday (a guy who was known for his love of women).

    That night (next morning about 2 AM) I was Stumbling Upon when my notification tone went off. Since my wife is a light sleeper, I scrambled to silence the sound. Imagine my surprise when I realized that my wallpaper had changed to a glamour photo of a dark-haired woman in a white dress - a photo that I do not have on my phone!! It wasn't pron or a creepy, ghosty picture, just a nice photo of a woman sitting on the grass.
    (Cue Twilight Zone music....)
    I immediately changed back to my original wallpaper, which I now regret doing.

    I thought maybe I had picked up a virus, so I shut the phone off so it wouldn't alert again.

    The next morning, the phone wouldn't turn on. Plugging it in to the charger showed the battery to be drained to 0%. After it charged I downloaded AVG Antivirus, which came up clean.

    My wife didn't hear the notification tone go off, BTW. My question is, how could my wallpaper be set to a photo I DON'T HAVE ON MY PHONE?

    Ghost, virus or just another Droid anomaly?

    TIA,

    I don't know what you were smoking, but I think I want some of it.

    That's weird. :blink: I guess there's somethings you just can't explain.

    I think they fixed the ghost in the machine with the .621 OTA update: the ghost kept turning on the phone after owners turned it off.
