    Hey Soemthing seems to be messed up with my droid touchscreen.

    It keeps messing up. Soemtimes I try to scroll and i zoom in like it thinks im touching in two places.


    Other times it freaks out when i touch the screen and starts jumping all over the place


    still other times i try to put in my 4 dot code to unlock it and it zooms off in different directions that im not touching and makes it impossible to unlock the phone

    what could be casuing it?

    Are you plugged in when this happens? that's when mine freaks out. It's fine when I'm not.

    Mine touch screen always freaked when it was laying on it's back, just one of those little quirks.
    Learned to raise one end up a little (about 30 degrees) and it was fine. Odd thing, if i was holding flat like it was lying on it's back, it worked fine. Something to do with it laying right on it's back. I did NOT have any case on it however, it was nakkid.

    Saturday my screen wouldn't activate at all. Did a factory reset, cleaned and everything, still nothing. Touch screen just wouldn't react to anything. Already got a replacement phone on the way, it'll be here tomorrow, but this was a freak accident.

    Hard to say given your post as there's nothing indicative of a potential cause. Interference with the capacitive screen (charger), moisture and a faulty screen are a few possibilities.

    My phone started doing this last Saturday night and was attempting to send texts and make phone calls. It wasn't even plugged in...

    I went to the Verizon store yesterday since it continues to do this and I have had it in Airplane mode most of the time. They had no replacement droids in stock, so they are sending me one and I should receive it tomorrow.

    Just hope it has no scratches or anything as mine is in pristine condition considering I have had it since last October.

    Actually, I am hoping they send me a Droid 2... dancedroid

    Mine too. Just happened a while ago. The bottom quarter of the screen is messed up with what looks likw lines and snow. A soft restart, and a battery pull out has not solved the problem...
