    You could try a factory reset

    The same thing suddenly is happening to my phone! Then when you call someone, it pops up the last person you talked to. I kept thinking that I was calling that person. Did you try the factory reset? Did it work?

    I know this is a reply to an old thread, but that initial post screen shot looks like a virus. Could you post a pic of what happens on your phone?

    You should be able to do everything that the phone can do normally except run user-installed apps and widgets in safe mode, unless they're on the homescreen already. I have used my phone in safe mode for days and had no issues making or receiving calls.
