Droid x dials numbers randomly, creates shortcuts on desktop?
new to the droid..
posted before..need to know if my device is defective or not..
Im noticing the following and a vzw tech rep mentioned that this stuff isnt normal..
1. randomly dials numbers..
2. I noticed shortcuts on the desktop that I didnt put there..
3. random apps open..like calender and call log (dialer)
I also noticed that the phone has a few seconds of lag when I attempt to text someone..
the last thing is that it still inserte periods randomly in sentences while texting and or emailing.that.kind.of.look.like.that?
is my device defective?
I deleted the app I thought was causing this, but its still doing it.
the apps I downloaded are google approved..not sure..
thanks very much

cory, I have a few apps loaded on it..they are the following
1. min basketball
2. anytime pool
3. bacbreaker football
4. fifa soccer.
5. sleep time
7. wings of fury? the WWI flight sim
they were all google approved apparently..
I read the reviews before buying any of these and previous users said the app /game worked well..
I have the option in my phone set to not allow non google approved sw to be loaded..
I have not done a hard reset..but why all of a sudden would the phone lag when i attempt to text?
the first day or so it was fine.. it isnt as bad as my first droid..that one was really going nuts on me..
I am well within my 30 day return policy with best buy so I can always get a brand new one..
my concern is with the apps..I dont just download anything..its weird..
I love the os and the phone..no doubt but when my dad called and asked whats up..I didnt know what the hell he was referring to..he said I called him..and on his tour it shows that I did and my phone did dial him??

When I think Android I see a true usable Windows like experience. Which I guess makes it more of super tool that has phone abilities then anything else.
On the other hand if you are worried that an application might negatively impact your user or phone experience I would suggest something a little bit more locked down. Iphone comes to mind but that isn't even perfect. Maybe a feature phone like a Chocolate or EnV.

my phone sent a picture i took to facebook. I know i am over 50 but I do not(did not)
remember sending it at all. I sent it to my daughter and brother and neither could have sent it to my account. On facebook it even says under the picture -sent by Droid. I did not know till I got a comment reply about it.
Just a note, picasa is my photo upload of choice.
