    Ya, Some third party chargers cause the Moto Droid to act up.

    I got a cheap case & charger package from Amazon.com for like $0.25 with $2.50 shipping, needless to say the charger charges, but makes my Droid act like I'm touching all the points of my screen at once, trying to unlock is pointless when it's plugged in.


    Don't use the charger for my Droid anymore, it works great on LG Dare now.

    Motorolla Droid.

    I've had touch screen issues as well.

    Initially, the touch screen search button wouldn't work and the entire right side was inconsistent.

    Screen behaved erratically and would quiver, twitch and select on-screen at random.

    Eventually, the back button and left side of the touch screen started to behave unreliably as well.

    I noted that it appeared to get worse when the phone got a little warm-not much, just a little.

    I decided it might be moisture related. It lives in my pocket and has spent time with me in humid environments. I left it on the dash in my car in the Phoenix heat for about an hour. It was too hot to touch.

    After the phone cooled down, it worked perfectly even when it gets warm from normal use.

    Good luck.

    What worked for me was to open the back of my HTC Droid Incredible and tighten the torx screws in the corners. Three of them were not at all tight. After that - no more troubles! I think, perhaps, the connection to the touch screen goes bad if things are not tight. I hope this helps all of you too.

    I had this exact problem about a week after I got my Dinc on line. I checked around various forums and have found no convincing help. Then I investigated and found the loose screws. Adds a whole new concept to one's have a few loose screws, eh?
