    Anyone else experiencing what seems to be a very poor responding touchscreen? Things like trying to flick between screens ending up with the home screen 'bouncing' but not changing. Or having difficulty moving icons and widgets to where it takes multiple tries to be able to move something on the screen or delete a preinstalled widget. Or flicking up or down in Contacts moving the screen just a few names (I got a rapid 'fly by' just once and have not been able to recreate it, the contact list on my old Voyager works much better). Or an unlock bar that seems to fight you if you move too fast. Or that seems to get worse in many of these after you do anything, e.g. if you add an app or move a shortcut icon then the screen response gets worse until you let the phone 'rest'. And all this occurs even with data disabled, Wi-Fi and GPS off, etc.

    Maybe it is just us being bad at using the screens, but we also seem to be getting poor battery life. Are there some running services that might be causing all this? Would a Factory Rest potentially help? Any other ideas? Or is it time to see about a replacement?

    Added: Factory Reset did not help with touchscreen issues, but may have helped with battery life.

    My screen bounces around sometimes. I am on my second Incredible. It didn't do this with my first one. Also when I am re-arranging my icons/widgets, especially to the top of the screen they frequently disappear even when I am very careful at keeping them within the green boxes. My first phone didn't do this either. Blown speaker on the first phone.

    Downloaded the 2.20 update and now the touchscreen operates much smoother. Don't know if that is a result of the update itself or just the act of updating, but either way we are much happier with it now.

    This only happens to me when it's plugged into my computer.
