    This is driving me crazy. The phone is pretty much useless when this starts happening. I will be on the Main home screen and then it will start jumping Home screens as if I'm swiping to the left but I'm NOT swiping! Once it is on the last screen to the left it won't let me switch back to HOME. I can almost never do anything when this happens.

    I haven't dropped the phone. I've reset the G-Sensor. Has anyone experianced this? I've even done a Wipe of the device.

    If that were happening to mine I'd start by cleaning the trackball thoroughly with an alcohol wipe.

    This is a common trackball issue that should warrant a replacement on your standard 1 year warranty.

    Go to the verizon store, show them the problem, after they reset your phone and it still does it they will give you a new phone.

    Edit: after cleaning ^^^^
