Droid 2 global home screen glitching?

Member
I recieved my first droid 2 global and after about an hour of using it, the home screen would start flipping to another screen about every 2 seconds. And it would always be the last thing I selected. For example, if I was looking at my contacts and hit the "home" icon, it would go to the home screen for a few seconds and then flip back to my contacts and continue doing this everytime I selected "home." It would also not let me get to the app screen at all.
I did run a virus scan, nothing came up and I didn't download a single app. About all I did was set up facebook for android and add a few contacts.

I took it to a verizon store and the man there had no idea what it was, so after putzing with my phone for an hour including doing a factory reset, he said they'd send me a new one.

BUT I had the same problem with the second phone and I'm completely frustrated and clueless. Anyone have any insight?

I've heard of some strange screen behavior related to having virus scanners on the phone. You might try removing that.

I had this issue before I installed  a virus scanner. Actually the guy at verizon put lookout on my phone.

Re: Droid 2 global home screen glitching?

I've had a Droid 2 for the last year and loved it... Until they upgraded the software and then, nothing works right. I just received my first replacement and I can't even unlock the damn thing. So I guess if I can't even dial emergency services if necessary, I know who will receive a law suit! Ugh. so... very... frustrated...

I have had my Droid 2 Global for about 2 years now and I never had any problems with it until they did the upgrade/update a few months ago.  THE UPGRADE/UPDATE WAS A DOWNGRADE...boooooooooooooooooo!!!

My droid 2 does the same thing (plus more) 😜

My Droid 2 locks me out of my own phone, while in the middle of a text or phone call it just decides to lock itself.

Unlocking my phone is a pain because the touch screen glitches as I try to draw in my lock pattern.

My phone started muting itself on/off numerous times during a phone call with my boss 😠

If I am lucky enough to get my phone unlocked and get to my home screen sometimes it begins selecting apps

or m contacts or the dialer and then freezes.

It restarts maybe 2-3 times a day. The one time I drop it (it started doing this after it fell off my lap as I stood up from sitting at a restaurant.)

And finally just about a week ago it began to start deleting my own contacts..

I loved this phone until it decided to run itself?

you stated "The one time I drop it (it started doing this after it fell off my lap as I stood up from sitting at a restaurant.)".

So why would you NOT think that the drop on the floor caused your problems??

Instead you blame the phone. DUH
