Weird bugs

So recently I have received a pre-owned refurbished phone (about three weeks ago), and transferred everything over, and it seemed to be working fine, until this morning, when my phone started to ignore any input I try to put into the touch screen and only responds to the actual physical keys being pushed. When I leave the phone by itself, it seems to go through a weird process of opening the same apps every time, in the exact same order, like some weird glitch.

 

I have restarted the phone twice and have even tried taking off the screen protector, but so far nothing.

 

If it helps, I have ADW Launcher on my phone. It worked fine on my other device and up until now has worked fine here. As far as I know, my phone has not been overheated, gotten wet, sat on, or any other problem. I'm willing to do a factory reset but I really rather not if it can be avoided.

 

Can you help me?

  Have you pulled the batery out yet? Mine will act wierd every once in a while, and I simply pull the battery and then restart it, and it works fine.

lornrocks-

 

Are you still having problems with the Fascinate randomly going though alternate apps?

 

If so, have you already pulled the battery? I would also recommend putting the Fascinate in Safe Mode which will disable any applications that are not necessary to operate the phone.

 

Once the Fascinate is in safe mode, does it still act erractically? If that is the case, then you would want to remove applications or master reset the phone.

 

Please let me know your results.
