    When I'm trying to text, the screen keeps jumping from the text entry box to the past messages, back to entry box and it scrolls back through the words already entered uncontrollably. On the main screen, it scrolls through the different screens uncommanded as well. The only thing I've changed recently is updating some of my apps. This is driving me crazy!

    Clean your screen. There may be oil from your fingers built up on the screen

    I already have a screen protector on the screen plus just cleaned it so I really don't think that's the problems. I'm suspecting more of a software bug...

    Have you tried a batt pull while the phone is powered on?

    Or you could power it down and then remove the battery for like 2 minutes. Then check back with us. If you can't power down though remove the battery.

    Trying out Sprint for a month. Sent from my Evo using Tapatalk. 4G is pointless when you don't live in one of the few available network areas.

    Did u get it fixed? If cleaning the screen didnt work or the batt pull you could always wipe the phone. Last option

    I've found the trackball to be the culprit to this fairly common problem. Yet some canned air and a lint-free cloth.
