    its very unlikely that anyone is hacking into your droid. If its something odd, look into the apps. They could be sending data/messing around with the workings.

    No I'm not. But someone puts a smile face in my reply box before I even get the chance to reply.

    That sounds more like a finger-placement or digitizer issue than anything.

    If any of this were possible they would have to know your Google password. Change your password and see if that stops it.

    Not the OP here, but in example, I sat and watched as someone opened my web browser, attempted to log into my bank account, then when he couldn't, he went and opened an old text message and wrote me a little gobbly-gook message, using my name and something about script kiddies, etc.

    Just want to know if there's a firewall or something I can use to stop it from happening or find out who's connecting to me.

    Immediately do a factory reset. Your phone is running an app that allows remote access to it. Hopefully it's not in the /system directory.

    Yes, I followed FBM's instructions and did the reset. I also checked the /system directory and it looks normal, and nothing seems to have happened since.

    Still want to know if there's a firewall or something I can use to track incoming IPs, but I guess the answer to that is not YET. *goes to learn some new skills.*

    Wow... I would have suggested lookout for security purposes. However now you might want to carefully review all Apps. What Apps did you have? did you have a remote login app on a computer or something?

    The Verizon rep that did my factory reset said she needed my accrue info to do it. I gave it but changed my gmail password as soon as I got home.

    Has anyone worked on your phone?
