    I received a non-OEM wall charger for my MyTouch through the mail today. My battery was less than 10% so i decided to give the new charger a try. I plugged it and let it charge for 30 minutes. I decided to check on the status (while it's plugged in) of the phone so i press the "Menu" button which asks to draw the pattern. When i firmly placed my finger down on the screen to start drawing the pattern, the screen goes CRAZY. The 9 different circles to connect the line start flashing and flickering ONLY when my finger is on the touchscreen.
    As soon as i unplug the charger, the phone acts normal and it allows me to draw my pattern without it flickering. I tried using the OEM USB Cable and it worked perfectly fine. I also noticed that the phone didn't charge at all during the 30-min it was plugged into the non-OEM charger. The interface is slower too.
    Has this happened to anyone else? What should i do?
    I bought the charger from Ebay. Do you think i could file a case and get my phone fixed?

    Here's the link i bought it from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180444540259&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT
