    I'm currently experencing a problem where 2.2 will refuse my PIN when I try to unlock the phone, no matter how carefully or precsiely I enter it. It's an intermitten issue. Sometimes the PIN works sometimes it doesn't. It feels like its getting worse too. This morning I had to enter my 12 times (2 lock outs) before it finally took it. I've tried reseting the PIN. Same issue.

    I'm also experencing another issue which may be related. Sometimes I unlock the phone and arrive at the home screen only to watch the phone scroll all the way to the left most home screen. When I try and swype it, it moves the page until I lift my finger and immedatly slides all the way back to the left.

    Any ideas?

    Are you overclocking? If so, it it set on boot? Try toggling it down and see if you still get that.

    Also, once you finally get past the PIN and into your device, have you tried disabling the PIN method altogether and seeing if it still lags?

    Its not overclocked. I've switched from PIN to Pattern. No issue with unlocking with the pattern but I still get the other issue where the home screen will slide to the left most pane. The fastest way to fix this is to smack the front of the screen and it will resume normal operation.

    Might just have Verizon replace my phone.
