Hello to you Bigdwc!
Let's put a sweater on your phone and warm it up! It will be my pleasure to provide some suggestions.
Thab provided some tremendous suggestions (thanks!) and I hope they resolved your screen difficulties. This isn't normal for the device at all.
I also wonder if you have any Task Killers, Antiviruses, or Battery Saver applications. If so I would recommend removing them and rebooting your phone. They tend to cause system instability.
Please let me know the results!
