    middle of the night and my droids home screen changed to a different picture without any help at all. My facebook status was changed to "Kg eL" without any help at all. A few of my friend (contacts) recieved a text message from my phone with simple characters as the message.

    WHAT in the world happened? Any help here....a little freaked out here.....email me with help at thermolok7@aol.com...thanks:mad:

    Lol I'm by all means skeptical about an Android device being maliciously and remotely tampered with given I've NEVER heard of this happening on a mobile device (though perhaps I missed an article), but I highly doubt all that could be done while having an incompatible charger plugged into the device. I've left my Droid plugged into the LG charger I got for my earpiece and never had any weird anomalies just FYI.

    Are you sure that you don't sleep walk Blueheron? ;)

    Does anyone actually email these people that come on here asking for help? We can help you here on the forum, but why would I email them?

    Now, your Droid was not hacked. It just wasn't. It was either a third party app causing problems or it was a charging cord you got off ebay or one that has gone bad.

    It's your charger. I've seen this before. Get a different one.

    There ya GO! Stock charger or after market charger? If it is the stock charger get it replaced. That is your problem and it has been confirmed that yes... a bad charger does this to the Droid.

    I wouldn't, that defeats the purpose of the forum itself.

    If you want to keep it private, then you go to PM's, but don't email if you can avoid it.

    So weird that a charger could cause all of that. Maybe I'll get an aftermarket charger and my Droid will start singing Daisy as it slowly falls helplessly to it's knees. Let's see who gets the joke. ;)

    You guys are all joking right? A aftermarket charger can cause the droid to spring a brain and fingers and dial people in the middle of the night and change user names? Maybe I need to take a nap ...

    It's not a brain and fingers, it just messes with the tough screen causing the phone to register what it thinks are screen touches. Capacitance touch screen and a bad charger with the Droid can cause the issue. As far as who it calls, text, changes status, etc... thats just pure randomness and luck of what screen touches the phone thinks that it's getting.

    Has anyone ruled out the possibility of a ghost? (Of course I'm only kidding)

    Nope not joking. It is the real deal. A bad charger can make your Droid do all sorts of weird stuff.
