    Came from RI to TN to visit family. We get to their neighborhood (has had some drug problems but a nice older community). I'm washing my hands and suddenly my phone is trying to break the password and dial. They kept getting to the emergency dial out but were trying to dial!!!

    1) HOw do I protect it
    2) How do I sick the police on them?

    I am mad!!!

    Lay off the egg nog dude, think its gettin to ya :icon_eek:

    If your phone was acting up, it was a glitch of some sort, it wasnt being remotely controlled. Or being used by a ghost.

    Was it connected to a charger? There have been widespread issues with the original Droid acting "possessed" while connected to a non-standard charger. Do a Google search for "droid is possessed" and you will get a bunch of hits, such as this one, which sounds similar to what you observed. It may not have been a hacker at all. I'm not sure but maybe the non-standard charger issue has persisted into the D2?

    +1 on the charger thing. I have heard unbelievable numbers of stories like this one that end up boiling down to paranoia and an after market charger.
