Default Mind of its own

Just had an issue today with the phone after I got off of NYCMaximas.org and went back to the home screen. The phone decided to have a mind of its own and was actually switching between screens itself. Every time I hit the home button it would switch to screen 2 and three and so on and so on. Also when I tried to text right after that I was unable to input text for w.e. reason. After a shut off and turn on of the phone the issue was resolved; "weird". Anyone else having this problem?

Same thing happened to me a few hours ago. My screens kept switching and when I went into messages they were scrolling up and down. I shut down and restarted and all was good.

This has happened to me as well. I think it's joystick related as I can stop the scrolling by scrolling my finger over optical joystick. It's a very irritating bug though that I hope will be stamped out in an update at some point. It's probably happened to me 5-7 times at this point.

Glad to see that I am not the only one with this issue. There are 3 other people at my job that have the same phone and they thought that I was crazy, lol. I just wish that they straighten this out quickly because I am going to have to make my choice to stay with VW or stick with AT&T before my 30 trial of the network is up.

I have had my display go crazy a few times. It almost seems like either the screen or the optical pad is too sensitive.

This issue is still happening to me and has grown increasingly frustrating. I'm going to pop into my local branch to see about getting a replacement.

I will set wallpaper then sometime during the day the phone will switch to the live htc bubble wallpaper by itself..except the "live" part isnt working. I have to switch it back to my wallpaper on the app, then shut the phone off and turn back on to get it to my wallpaper.

i see all of these posts with out any answers as to what caused the problems. if i talk on my gzone commando for over 3 minutes, it starts "buzzing" uncontrolably and the person i am talking to cannot hear me, the screen starts scrolling uncontrolably and my temper excels. the only way i can stop it is to push the power button and put the phone in sleep mode. is this a phone problem or is it a virus or is it one of the 9 apps i have downloaded?
