    HELP!

    I spilled on my droid about a month ago and it's never really been the same- HOWEVER it only freaked out randomly.

    Freakin out = im tryin to text and all of a sudden it scrolls up the text message history- basically just has a mind of its own and opens random **** that i DID NOT CLICK!!!

    I can barely text.. i have to keep pressing my finger on the text field over and over again because the fone keeps trying to do something else.

    This just started happening to me to the point of me having my battery out of my fone and its just sitting infront of me (ITS THAT BAD)...

    It started happening after i was running on the treadmill at the gym though, listening to music- the music kept cutting IN AND OUT and then I realized that when i was trying to do ANYTHING with my fone- it was just doing a whole bunch of crazy other things.

    Factory reset?!?!?

    Take it in?!

    Leave out battery and just wait it out>?!!?!?!?! what do i do im so scared- i do not have insurance and I already rooted my fone!!

    Not trying to make your day any worst but if you're rooted even if you can get back to stock if that water symbol shows signs of damage they won't replace your phone for you.

    Yes, try a factory reset.

    If you're rooted you need to go back to stock before you turn it in. Do that first and then do the factory reset (if necessary). If that fails, then it's off to Verizon.

    Do you have your phone sync'd thru gmail by chance for contacts? Or have you installed an app that will backup them up to your SD card?

    I was merely thinking gmail for your contacts - you would not loose them if you were using gmail. MyBackup Pro (paid app in market) allows you to save them to your SD card or online (I think) - hope all works out - good luck!! :icon_ banana:
