    My story is long, and pretty twisted, and I'm at my breaking point. I literally have very little control of my x2. I think there is someone other than me using my phone (OMG, I sound all 'Conspiracy Theory'). Major issues as follows:
    1. Browser redirection 80% of the time.
    2. When I view a websites certificate, its issued to 'DoubleClick.net', *google.com, paypal production, bluekai.net, the list goes on and on.
    3. Both my bank and paypal accounts have been hacked.
    4. Everytime I make a phone call, the LED light flashes.
    5. I have wierd services running all the time like CacheUpdateRuleCheckerService, GroupsRuleCheckerService, TextRuleCheckerService, BluetoothMapService (dont ever turn on BT), GPS$togglewidget (running together with QuickContact, QuickContactData)
    6. 5-6 weeks ago, I apparently received 2.3 update (Verizon rep. said no way, hasnt gone out yet)
    7. I enable restriction lock, disallow modem, and location, and within 3-4 hours, its all disabled (no power off done)Keyboard constantly reverts back to multitouch (I prefer swype), quicklaunch buttons reappear after I delete them, I have some menu screens that are white, and some that are black. I factory reset, and oddly enough, my phone will dial, and 'press 1 to program or activate' all by itself, and be programmed in less than 3 seconds. I go to the market, and content filtering is set and locked on show apps rated...huh? I reset to show all apps, but it never sticks

    The list goes on and on, and after writing all this, I'm seriously depressed. Please help, if you can. BTW, No, my phone is not rooted (atleast i dont think so), but I'M WILLING TO ROOT if it means my phone will be MINE.

    Get a new phone. Go to Verizon tell them this so you can get another dx2 something is seriously wrong and I can't see root going anything for you since you already redone your device unless you do the sbf process.

    In m not sure on that but it may not work since your on gingerbread somehow.

    Best bet is to take it back for another one.

    Sounds like a virus to me. Sbf you phone back to stock and do not install any apps. If it keeps happening without any apps installed you have a defective phone and should return it. Please take a video of it for utube so others can see the odd behavior.

    Sounds like sbf is the only way. But I'd do a factory reset before you sbf as well. If you do have a virus or malware the sbf should wipe it but I also wouldn't restore any type of app/data info just to be safe & rule out as much as you can.

    I agree with the others. Your phone has been infected.

    I would be tempted to install Lookout or AVG and see if they find anything. But the only sure way of knowing the phone is clean is by an SBF.

    First post in this thread over at XDA outlines how to do this:
    SBF TUTORIAL (Collection of instructions from various threads...) - xda-developers

    If that is too much for you then you need to take the phone to a corporate Verizon store that has a repair tech on staff and have them do that for you.

    Like others I would love to see video of this phone in action.

    The issue with Android is malware, not viruses, though Trojans have been found... primarily in the Chinese market.

    Anti-virus apps are a waste and resource hogs. All it's going to do (if anything) is tell you that you have a virus, it's not going to prevent one.

    I'd take your phone to Verizon... maybe have it replaced as it may be a defective device.

    Also I'd set up the dual authentication for your g-mail account as it provides added protection against being hacked.

    Only way anyone would have access to your device would be if you downloaded and installed something that granted access...

    And why is that so odd? Speaking as someone that works on PCs everyday I have clients that are tricked into doing that everyday. Most Viruses exploit the weakest link which most of the time is the fool in the chair. It's going to be no different on phones. He mentions getting an upgrade to 2.3 weeks before anyone else did. If someone hacked his gmail they could use that to send you email with an attachment telling you that you have an upgrade. I have people that infect their PCs that way all the time.

    I agree with you about AV programs I was just curious to see if it would spot anything. Like I said in my post I would follow that with an SBF.
