    I plug in my phone to charge, and put on Slacker, and a couple of minutes later I notice my phone screen is moving, things are being entered, phone numbers searched, etc. I try to use the phone, and it's like I'm doing battle with someone else who is using it. I yank the battery, wait a while, and when I reinsert the battery, all seems fine.

    What can I do to get rid of this? Is my phone totally compromised? Anyone else have this happen to them?
    Thanks

    Is it only happening with Slacker?

    Yes...not sure if that is a coincidence.

    Doesn't sound like one. Slacker may be conflicting with something else, or may be corrupt. Try going to your apps manager - to all, find Slacker and tell it to clear cache and anything else there, then force stop and restart the phone.

    OK, so I went to apps manager, cleared all data, did a force stop, and then restarted the phone. I've been charging and listening to Slacker now for a while, and no problems, so it looks like that did the trick. Thanks so much for the help.
