    Most third party applications have a odd effect on my phone.

    I'll be playing a game (this usually happens in games) when all of a sudden my phone will think that I've pushed one of the touch-sensitive buttons below the screen. It will vibrate, and the menu in the game will open, or the application will shut down. Sometimes it just vibrates, which probably means the search button was 'pressed.' My hand is nowhere near those buttons when this happens.

    For many of these applications, turning the sound off seems to pretty much prevent the problem (and by turning the sound off, I mean in the app. Turning the volume down all the way doesn't do anything), but it's not guaranteed.

    Anybody seen any similar behavior or know what might be causing this?

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling the app.

    That might work, but it's happening in many apps, making me think it's something endemic to the phone instead of the app.
