    I ordered the Droid 2 from VerizonWireless off their site received the phone and noticed that when I go to the lock screen I get messages like this:

    photo | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    They are pretty random and sometimes even threatening.

    Examples: "you have stolen this phone and it must be returned. You have been reported to Verizon and if not returned we will find you...because there's an app for that."

    "captain"

    "This phone is owned by "random name" call "number" to return immediately.

    (I have called a couple of these and they are legit with the name and number)

    Currently it is displaying "This phone belongs to Inah Me (phone number) if lost please call (phone number)

    I called tech support and they said that in 30 years of support they've never seen anything like it.

    We reset the phone back to stock default uninstalling everything on the phone.

    However, when I re-synced, and all the applications and accounts came back online so did the random texts.

    I believe some application is doing this that I have installed but which one and why?!

    IDEAS?! It's creepy, wacky, and cool.

    Maybe I have glitched the matrix and have access to random people's screen displays from around the world!

    BTW the phone numbers are from all different parts of the country if you were wondering.

    But seriously...HELP!

    If you did a factory reset and you are still getting these messages, then it might mean that a stock app is causing this issue...which is really strange.

    Never had that issue, so don't even know what app might give you such message.

    I think best action is get the phone exchanged.

    Factory reset then turn the data and app-sync off before any of them reinstall. Wait a bit to make sure you don't get any message. Then start the slow process of reinstalling everything individually (keep track just in case the rogue messages show up again so you can find the culprit app).

    I had the same thing - and uninstalling anti-virus did work. But why would there be a setting in the app? I just assumed the app was defective and removed it.
