    I'm charging with the stock cord and adapter and I'm getting pretty pissed off with this thing while its plugged in. Anybody else having issues?

    The magnetic field created by charging the phone can cause issues with the touchscreen. It goes back to normal when it's unplugged right?

    I had Sprint's version of the phone for a few days and had this problem. Switching to a different charger fixed the problem. I have a number of HTC charging blocks and generic USB cables I bought on Monoprice. All I did was try a few different combinations until it stopped. Have not experienced this with the AT&T version of the phone.

    I have also not noticed this. I use an HTC and the Samsung charger.

    Yeah, it does stop when I unplug it. I guess ill try out some different things and see if I can get it to stop.

    Just like the Epic, there is a serious defect with that charger. Try a different one instead. Somewhere I'm the Epic Touch forum I posted a link to an OEM Samsung charger with a 5 foot cord that fixes the problem. I'm mobile right now, otherwise I would link you.

    Same issue here. Stops freaking out when I unplug it. USB cable only to my PC doesn't do it, but i guess there's less current flow via USB. Glad I'm not the only one with this issue.

    Recently my samsung galaxy stopped charging when plugged into the car charger and when its plugged in it goes into a "car" mode that I haven't seen before and i am unable to use the phone unless I unplug it. It charges at home with no problem and the car charger charges my bluetooth with no problem. any ideas?

    Anytime I use my wife's htc charger my phone spazzes out. Apps, Internet, wrong apps open up, etc.

    Don't think I've ever seen this on my SG2s and using the stock charger for both. Also have a small Jawbone microusb cord sitting with my laptop at work and that doesn't cause me any issues either.
