    About an hour ago I went to pick up my phone to send a text and for the love of God, I could not navigate to the messaging app. My Droid would just go into different apps by itself without me clicking into them. One time it opened up the app store and clicked into in app and almost bought it!

    Ive tried taking out the battery and sd card and rebooting it. But its not helping anything. Now my phone is rooted to BB v1 so should I ty going back to stock? OR what should I do?

    Thanks

    Do you have a stable backup of the BB v1.0

    Sometimes when I set mine down on my flat desk it will change to the horizontal screen. Drives me nuts.

    These aren't phones, they are actually well disguised gremlins.

    This might be too simple, but sometimes my phone gets really greasy from exciting phone calls. Haha. And when I try to select certain things, it selects the wrong thing.

    After a good cleaning, everything works.

    there's a weird bug where, sometimes, when plugged in using a non-factory usb cord, if you hold your finger still on an icon or a drag bar, it wiggles even though your finger isn't moving

    I had an issue similar to that that I figured out was stemming from my screen protector and protective case combination. The screen protector (Invisa-shield by Zagg) and the Otterbox for the droid put too much pressure on the screen, causing it to open wrong menus, going into the browser, and just plain not responding correctly.

    If you use aftermarket products such as screen protectors and/or protective cases that might cause it to do that.
