    Ok, so all the sudden car mode keeps enabling itself. The icon pops up in my top notification bar. And I lose sound. Well, most sound. My media sound, ring sounds, notification sounds would be gone. When I restart the phone it is ok until it happens again. Several times a day.

    I also get a pop up message allot asking me if I want to complete this action in vze navigation or some other stupid one I cant remember.

    Another crazy thing I will try and explain. Sometimes my screen goes into a completely new theme? It just does this on its own. Then when I click the X it returns to the themes I have installed.

    Anyone know what is going on or what I can try? I did the *228, took out battery. Tried to look into settings. I cant even find a damm car mode.

    My phone is not rooted. Running Android 2.3.4

    Please offer advice. Is my phone screwed?

    Car mode is an app Verizon puts in as bloatware I believe. If not VZ, then HTC put it in there. It can't be removed, but under app management, you might be able to clear data form the app.

    The theme thing I don't know. Maybe the same this as above for the theme chooser...
