    My phone continually and out of nowhere puts itself in the "Car Mode". Like with the steering wheel in the task bar... I've never mounted it in my car or even really used the Car Mode App. but periodically I'll pull my phone out of my belt case (locked) and find it in the Car Mode after unlcoking the screen?? I have to hit the "Exit the Car Mode" button to take me back to home screen. HOW does it keep getting initiated into this app??? Anyone else ever see this happen? I have the unrooted FR22G latest update, and all stock if that matters.

    Does your belt case latch magneticaly? If so, that is most likely the culprit. Your phone goes into car mode by the use of a magnetic sensor in the phone. Try turning it the other direction when putting it in the case.

    That was it! I didn't realize the magnet would do that. It didn't do it regularly but occasionally it would do that. I downloaded Dock Blocker and now it doesn't happen anymore. Thanks for the help!
