    This started about a month ago. Then seemed to stop. Now it has started again, and it's much worse.
    The bottom half of the screen looks like a bar code, and flashes on and off. (the names & numbers were smuged intentially)

    I've never seen it. Have you tried a factory rest? I know that's not the funnest sounding thing, unless somebody here chimes in that knows what it is, that's what verizon is going to do.

    that almost looks hardware related to me.
    but it's probably worth trying a reset first.

    That looks to me like your screen is going bad. I would take it to Verizon as soon as possible.

    Is it like that on every screen or just the contacts? If it's every screen it looks like you dropped the phone. If it's just the contacts it's time for a factory reset.

    It first started out it was only on the first screen when you turn it on. It is now moving to other screens. The Droid has never been dropped, or abused.

    Looks like you dropped it in your fish tank.

    I took the Droid X to Verizon. They said the screen was going bad. Verizon said it would be covered under warranty.
    Received the new DroidX yesterday. Everything seems to be OK so far.
    Thanks for everyone's input.
