    Phone Facts:
    Droid 2
    Rooted using Z Root in January
    Sent as a Verizon Replacement December 15th 2010 (Went through 3 Motorola Devours...)


    Today, as I was trying to send a text, the Swype started acting crazy and started inputting random letters. Then I stopped touching my phone and the phone started resending old texts, swiping home pages, opened and closed apps and started to want to delete my Dialer. (This is when I paniked big time) It was like someone had remote access (which I bet this is what it is) to the phone, because I was fighting them just to reset the phone. I reset it 3 times tonight and even when the phone was factory clean and on airplane mode, the phone started opening settings and random apps. I just got frustrated and took the battery out and so it's dead now. I took the sd card out and it still acted like this. I even didn't sign in my Google Accounts after reactivating the phone and it still acted crazy. I'm at my wit's end and I don't know what to do!

    Additional Symptoms
    • I had the phone off for an hour, battery and SD out. When I turned it back on and put the SD in, The date was December 31st 1969. at 7:00PM (actual time was 6:24pm)
    • Phone makes calls, just trying to get to the Contacts is an impossible challenge.
    • Phone was fine after the 3rd reset for 3 hours then started acting up.
    HELP! THANK you.

    Was the phone plugged in for any of this? Are you using the OEM Motorola charger?

    My phone was not plugged in. I was out when it all happened..

    I have been using my Kindle charger since Verizon sent it to me.:(

    I wish Verizon would have sent me a brand new phone. From collective experiences of my fiance and I, "Certified Like New" replacements from Verizon and "Refurbished" replacements from Apple crap out very quickly...

    When you say reset? Are you doing this from the settings screen or via recovery?
