Rogue DROIDS have mind of their own
If your Motorola DROID starts to come to life, do not panic. If you are using a charger that is not original equipment, go back to the one that came with the phone and see if that fixes the problem. If that fails, you could bring your DROID back to Verizon and see what they suggest. This is an ongoing problem that started within weeks of launch and new complaints keep popping up on the DROID FORUMS board. Not even for one second do we believe that a contingent of Android powered Motorola phones will each start making rogue calls, sending out gibberish emails and surfing the web in a diabolical plot to take over the world. That we leave up to Apple and the iPhone.

And that, kiddies, is why you don't use chargers not specifically meant for the phone you're using. There are different amp levels needed between some smartphones and regular phones; in the Droid's case this makes sense due to the monster battery it uses. What do you think is going to happen when you poke your electronic equipment with electrical sources not designed for it?

I've not had any problem with mine, but I mainly use the Motorola charger it came with. But I sorta wonder if this is SkyNet trying to take over humans??? :o

The screen on my Droid tends to go a little crazy while plugged in, granted not that bad. But you can test it yourself by pluggin in your Droid and pulling down the notification bar and try to hold it still it tends to bounce all over the place!

SO WHERE DID IT START SENDING EMAILS???? LIKE THE ARTICLE SAID? I have seen many touch screens do that, Its an issue with the touch screen. This is dumb. Hes a bad phone who cares. Guy probably dropped in water or something.

Alright, time for a quick lesson. The program that is running on the screen is not a default app. If you research the app prior to the current version, customers state that it does weird things to their phones including making phone calls! Hint hint, delete the app. That is one down fall of open source development, bad programmers...

ok, so my moterola droid is pure evil scince its doing things by itself... its not the charger and i cant even get into settings to reprogram it because its clicking on otherthings by itself. all i have installed on it is: i heart radio , zedge ringtones, Angry birds, speed anatomy, and love calculator...i installed love calculator after it started going haywire though... but my phone has its really bad moments and calmer moments... i cant take it to verizon because of parents... and for fear that i will have to pay because i have no insurance on the phone! WHAT DO I DO!!!!!!
