1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hey guys, right now I'm trying to keep my cool, so if I get angry please don't flip out? Anyways...

    A few minutes ago, I went to check my phone for new texts. I was typing a response to one, and all of a sudden random apps started opening. I did a battery pull, and as soon as I turned it on, the notification tray pulled down, pulled up, gmail pulled up, opened a link to youtube, and I hit the lock button again. Does anyone have any idea what is happening?

    It's unplugged from the charger, it's been for the past 8 hours. Thanks for the swift response though!

    mine just did this about an hour or so ago....

    i have the security feature turned on, the one where you draw the shape to unlock, and half way through it started flipping out.. finally got past that and the drop down would come down by iteself....
    it would randomly start applications, goto the market and try to install different things, after scrolling at lightning speeds...

    thought it was a touch issue, or something that way messing with the touch screen.... i pulled battery.... pulled sd card.... wiped it off and such, and even pulled off the plastic protector under the screen slide thinking it was the loose plastic hitting keys on the keyboard...

    here is how i finally got it to stop.... for now

    if at any point you cant use the touch, or it starts flipping out, just give the power button a tap twice to turn it off then on.. and continue

    hit your menu key... second button on the bottom (looks like lines)
    goto settings... then applications .... then manage applications
    start hitting applications and uninstalling them, the ones you have downloaded from the market
    after starting this, (i had maybe 30 or 40 apps here...) it started to slow down, and eventually stopped after uninstalling weatherbug

    i dont know if it was weatherbug, or not, but i uninstalled everything but 3 things....

    com.android.gallery
    com.android.inputmethod.latin
    maps

    now its not geeking anymore
    im going to start installing again to see if i can catch the bad software
