    I recieved a uk mains charger from e-bay today.When i plug it in the phone freezes and does random screen changes.It seems to charge ok but i basically cant use it as the screen wont respond properly to any swipe actions etc.Is it safe to use,could it be damaging the phone in anyway????Advise please:).

    Sounds ropey to me. What happened to the one which came with your phone?

    Let me guess, 3rd party charger? I've experienced this before.

    hmmm...third party chargers, always dodgy in my eyes. I use the my old htc hero charger as my spare and the one that came with the phone as my main i.e. they have the same output.
