    Has anyone else seen this? I have a charger I bought online (perhaps the problem), and when the phone is plugged in it charges fine, but the screen is way less responsive than when it's unplugged. I have to press my selections hard or multiple times to select things, but if I unplug it works flawlessly, single touch or light pressure will select. Odd no? Some odd grounding/capacitive (sp?) issue?

    Known issue with some after market chargers and cables.

    OK, thanks. Not a huge issue, just thought it was odd...

    +1 on that. Can it be plugged into the computer or another charger (wall or car) with no issue at all? That would confirm the aftermarket charger.

    Yah it's definitely aftermarket, I think I bought it on Amazon for 1 penny!

    I don't know if i'd call it "too good to be true", I paid 1 cent and received a charger. Pretty good i'd say. I know it's probably total junk but I have insurance :)

    Well, I'm not sure you can say for certain it's the chargers fault. If you feel it truly is and you want to use insurance, by all means do so but it could also fall under a factory warranty issue. IMHO.

    If this only occurs while on charge, I think the solution is easier than that.

    Just order one of those 2 cent chargers instead :)

    No no it charges fine, I just meant that if my 1 penny charger fry's my phone after some period of time, I can always do an insurance exchange. :)

    For what it is worth I payed $20 for a extra cable from the Verizon store and it is having the same stinkin issue. So I am not sure the fact that it cost you 1 cent makes much of a difference.
