    After fooling with it a little more (waiting on my replacement to come in), it is DEFINITELY a hardware issue. The capacitive sensitivity seems to have gotten super sensitive and ANY oil on the screen from skin contact sends it into "ghost" mode. If I clean it then use a thin napkin or something, it works okay. As soon as oil gets back on it though, it starts registering touches like crazy. It seems like the lower quarter is the most sensitive (sense it's probably had the most contacts thanks to the swipes to unlock it).

    Crazy hot days

    Mine has just started going crazy lately. It does appear to be heat related and maybe sweaty body related. If I put it in my shirt pocket on a hot day and I start sweating, it goes crazy. If I put it in my home dock and wait for awhile, it works again. I haven't cleaned my screen to make it work better. I guess I'm glad to see it isn't just my phone. What is the process of transferring everything from one phone to another? I know it isn't just taking out the SD card. Can you load the onboard memory onto the SD card?

    Before getting my droid, I had a POS samsung glyde. Look it up. Those phones were notorious for doing that. Just sitting on the table it would scroll thru my contacts and randomly call one. Or send a text message. Or ope 'Get it Now'. Well, After speaking with Verizon, they said the latest firmware upgrade would work. nope. So they replaced the phone. Within 2 weeks it started doing it again. So replaced it again, then again. Long story short, I ended up with 5 phones, and all of them had that problem. It tracked down to being a short in the screen, and became even more problematic the warmer it got.

    Moral: Get a replacement now, it will only get worse.

    Ok now my droid is as responsive as its ever been... For 2 days I could barely even unlock it, now its fine. I took it to Verizon anyway and the guy said 2.2 is supposed to fix it, which I think is BS but if it does it again Im taking it back and getting a replacement.

    My droid started doing this about 3 weeks before the x was scheduled to be released. It went from bad to extremely horrible in a matter of days. I couldn't unlock my phone or anything. My fix was to pull the battery out, wait about 10 mins, and then reboot.

    That worked about 80% of the time. Couldn't get rid of my moto droid fast enough after that.

    I hope 2.2 is the actual fix.

    I've had this same problem and it's currently being fixed or replaced by the Geek Squad at Best Buy. Now I can find out whether GS is as bad as their reviews. :) One thing sure, they are slow. I took it to BB late on a Friday night, and today is one week later and I get an email that they have received it! Wow! I get to enjoy my stone-age Samsung Alias for so long!
