    My phone has been doing some weird shit lately.

    When I'm trying to type a text message, the screen will repeatedly scroll up and down and type letters that I haven't typed. After it stops, it won't let me the type the letters I'm touching. Example: It'll type an E when I'm trying to type a W. And the caps button will turn on without me touching it.

    When I go back to the home screen, I'll hit the message button but YouTube -- which is right under the messages button -- will launch instead. Anyone ever had this issue and know how it can be fixed? Or is my phone screwed?

    Did you download the ouija board app? :)

    Don't worry, I have this new miracle phone that will solve all your troubles. I've sold it to a bunch of my friends and it's changed their lives. You can sell it yourself and make money by the boatloads like I have. Contact me if you want some more details.

    Did you touch the phone with wet hands? That might have something to do with it. Otherwise, reset it and try again.

    Weird. I'd try restarting the phone or even just closing out the messenger app and start it back up.

    Are you charging it while all this is going on? When I have mine plugged in at home and try to use the touch screen, my phone acts all scatterbrained.

    I haven't touched it with wet hands, and it hasn't been plugged in while it's going on. I turn it off and turn it back on, and it's fine. But then it does it again.

    Reinstall your software. Easy enough to do.

    This... I had some weird stuff going on with mine, I synced it, then ran a full restore, has been fine since. Just make sure you sync it first, it sucks having to go back and reload all the apps.
