Wow!!! You totally described exact same issues I am having only on my droid 2 phone:((( I have not downloaded anything extra on my phone, have not had any unusual updates etc so I 'd say verizon is definitely doing something not "kosher" that we are not aware of. I am getting used to my screens switching and jumping from one place to another but the texting part is driving me nuts!!!! As if the ghost itself is trying to play a trick here.....the cursor is moving on its own, stops, resets, etc WTF?!?!?!?!
Oh man, I am just waiting for any of my important docs, pics to disappear god forbid, they'll hear from me on the freaking news!!!!!
