Ok, so I am having quite a few of the same problems listed in the 'screen issue' threads for the Droid 2, and D2G. The phantom finger on the screen, back/home buttons sometimes don't work, unable to scroll a web page without it zooming in, and when in wide screen mode (on side, or keyboard out) I can not slide the notification bar. I attempted to seek help at one of the local stores, but they blamed it on a tiny (almost unnoticeable) scratch which has been there for a very long time. This problem started last week with no damage occurring to it, and no new apps installed in several weeks. I've ran it in safe mode, and uninstalled every possible app on my phone as well as updates for the ones I couldn't. I have done everything that I know to do so far aside from a hard restart, but it doesn't seem like that would help considering that the issues still occur even when in safe mode. Is there another solution that I have yet to explore, or is my phone completely screwed?
@harvellb_350 - I would honestly perform the hard reset after backing up any important documents, numbers, photos, etc. This way by starting fresh, we can try and pinpoint if the issue is either hardware or software related.

I am having this same issue. My phone loves to hit the same area over and over--attempt to buy full cd's from Google Play and call people in the middle of the night. These are the actions I have already tried---help!
-Hard reset it 3 times
-Taken it to the Verizon Store-- they told me it could be something to do with 3G and not having the 4G
-Uninstalled Facebook (I read somewhere that is where the issue is happening)
-Installed a keyboard (Gingerbread Keyboard)-- then uninstalled it when that didn't seem to work
-Clear the Multi-touch keyboard in the manage apps section
-Cleaned the screen
-Taken the battery out and let it sit.
I am 2 months away from an upgrade. I was PROMISED this phone would last me the full 2 years--- HELP
