IPhone :: Screen Jumping And Skipping Erratically On Touch
3GS Screen jumps and skips when i touch it sometimes. Erratically and unpredictably. It has happened mostly when I try and call anyone on my list of favorites around the top 5 or 6 of them.
The apple store person (after giving me a new phone) told me to not restore to the "old restore" I had, and to do a "new phone" restore. So I did..... Still happening.
I feel like it could still be software related seeing the chance of it happing to 2 different units is pretty remote.

Xperia PLAY :: Screen Jumping To Different Homescreens?
I have only just got an xperia play today,and I find it a good phone. Only problem is the screen will occasionally Spaz out.It will move independently jumping to different homescreens, even activating stuff on them.At first I thought it was the screen protector that I put on but I've removed it but it had done it once since then.

IPhone :: Touch Screen Randomly Loses Touch Functionality?
Anyone suffering from this? Wanted to see if this was an OS issue with a select few or a hardware issue on my end.Every so often, not really a set time, but my touch screen just loses all touch functionality. I can still use the home button to get back to the main screen. I can even use the home button to get into 'Spotlight' but the touch functionality of typing anything or selecting any icon just dies.The only solution I have found is that I have to put it into a sleep mode and wake it back up.I just want to see if this is a 3.0 issue or if it is my phone directly? Not sure if anyone is experiencing this.

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Touchscreen Acts Erratically When On Charge
When my Bionic is on the charger that came with the phone, the touchscreen acts totally erratically when trying to use it. If I'm trying to type a text message, it randomly hits letters, backspaces, etc. Same thing for trying to scroll and select stuff. However, the phone charges just fine. When I use the charger that came with my OG Droid dock, the phone is fine. Touchscreen works perfect. Same goes with the Moto car charger I have.
Assuming it was a bad charger, I spoke with Motorola chat online and they agreed to send me a new charger. I received it today (although it seems it's a different type of charger. It's not the USB cable with a wall adaptor, but an old school charger where the cable is permanently attached to the wall adaptor) but the phone seems to be doing the same thing (although it's not as severe as it was with the original charger that came with the phone).

Motorola Droid Razr :: Compass Pointing Erratically In All Directions?
I noticed that the compass on google map (blue little arrow) is a bit crazy. it will not point north. It may point west but when I tilt the phone up or down even just a bit (still pointing north), it will flip to pointing east. If I drive with the Map app open, the arrow (using GPS I guess) point to the direction of driving. but a few seconds after stopping the around will flip between 90 and 100 degrees, until I start moving again. I found that google sky also goes totally crazy and jumps all around when I use it. I downloaded a compass app and it also shows the compass moving erratically when I move the phone even a few degrees. Although this phone is brand new (4 days) it is not my first Android nor my first Moto. I remember that my other phone had a compass calibration utility and I can't seem to find it on the Razr..

IPhone :: Upgrading From 2.0.1 To 2.1 Skipping 2.0.2?
I've been monitoring the forums with the express intent to gather data in helping me to decide if/when I should upgrade my iPhone 3G. I am currently running iPhone vers 2.0.1 and using iTunes 126.96.36.199 on Windows XP. Plugging in my iPhone while running iTunes (again, 188.8.131.52), I am alerted of the availability of iPhone version 2.0.2. Should I attempt to upgrade to 2.0.2 BEFORE upgrading to iTunes 8 and then subsequently iPhone 2.1, OR should I just skip iPhone 2.0.2 and go straight to iTunes 8 and then iPhone 2.1?

IPhone :: Skipping App Update
Is there a way to ignore an application update? I use iStat, and the new version removes a key feature by Apple's request. Therefore, I do not want to update to the latest version. It seems when updating apps, you can either say Update All or just choose each individual update. I like using the Update All button. I don't want to be stuck having to click each individual app to update for the rest of my life because of one app I don't want to update. Is there a way to tell iTunes, "No, I want to skip this update?"

IPhone :: Reasons For Skipping IP4
The more I think about it, the 3GS may serve me just fine. Yes, the screen is better, but at least I am given the comfort of how fluid the OS flows on screen on the 3GS, compared to other devices on the market. The 3GS isn't even that bad of a device compared to a lot of Android/smartphones out there.
HD video and camera? I could care less about since I really don't take much photos with a phone camera. If I do, it will be a quick photo, which doesn't need the huge megapixel count anyway (megapixel does not equal quality). Much of my pictures and night pictures come from my Nikon, which then is edited to fit the iPhone screen. However, the iPhone 4 design aspect is really nice, but that's just for eye candy
FaceTime? I barely even video chat with anyone on my MacBook to begin with and I do not know much people that can FaceTime with me since they won't be getting an iPhone 4, my friends usually carry Sprint phones or BlackBerry. Gyro? The food? Just kidding. Well, I do play games on my iPhone, but not enough to warrant the new accelerometer use.
Dual mics. That's a biggie for me, but I'm young and texting is the way many, if not all, of my friends communicate, except for my lady contact. New glass? Cool, dropped my 3GS a few times, no scratches. New glass seems like a great design and I am sure it will get better in iPhone 5
Battery? This is a big one for me. Even though my 3GS works perfectly fine throughout my daily usage (usually down to 40% at the end of my day 9AM-9PM), the iPhone 4's better battery looks great, but the difference comparison on Apple is somewhat minimal. At least I still get 4.0 on the 3GS along with the excellent multitasking usage and the folders. I am grateful for that.
This wasn't meant to be a rant, just my opinions on why the 3GS may still be good for me to skip this year's model. But, you best believe that I will be first in line for iPhone 5 or whatever they call it because my full upgrade will be ready by then. Given this year's specs, I will expect much better features next year along with a new OS.

IPhone :: Skipping Songs After Upgrade To OS 3.0
Since upgrading to OS 3.0 my iPhone has randomly started to skip songs.
It's not 'Shake to Shuffle' as that's turned off, it's not 'Shuffle' as that's not on either.
At the moment it's two songs specifically, one off an album where the rest play fine, and just a single track. I don't understand it...
If I go into the playlist and tap on the song, the song comes up but jumps to the next, or the third/fourth song after that, and like above, 'Shake to Shuffle' and 'Shuffle' are both turned off...
I've tried restoring my iPhone to the factory settings, i.e. not from a backup, but it still skips the same tracks! WHY?

IPhone :: 3GS - Songs Skipping After IOS4
My iPod Touch completely died so I bought an iPhone 3Gs. It broke after 2 days due to me trying to update to iOS4, so I sent it off to apple and they sent me a new one back a few days ago & I found that this one was already using iOS4.
I was extremely happy to find everything working! Or atleast, that's what I thought! BUT NO!!
Random songs skip like a scratched CD when I play them but work fine on iTunes! This is SO frustrating because I listen to music ALL THE TIME!
I've tried so many different things (turning my firewalls off didn't work for me, although it did for many other people) but nothing is working.
I really don't want to resort to 'Restore' because that's what caused the iPhone to completely break last time!

Nokia :: 5233 Can't Use Touch Button That Apper On Touch Screen
I just bought the new Nokia 5233 phone.Whenever the phone is locked and I set a alarm. There is no way i can stop the alaram other than to reset the alarm manually by alarms-> edit.
There will be two touch buttons that apper on the otuch screen. One to stop and other to snooze the alarm. Even If press them, it wont work. The alaram keeps ringing. I even tried clicking on the green button and the menu botton at the bottom. Still no use. I cant even unlock the phone. Only thing i can do is press the red button at the end, which will snooze the alarm. After this, I have to manually change the alarm time.
The same thing happens even with phone calls. I cannot use the touch button that apper on the touch screen. I have to use the green and red button at the bottom.These problem come into picture only if the phone is locked. Otherwise it works fine.

IPhone :: Song Started Skipping Listening Ipod
I was listening to my ipod on my iphone. One of the songs started "skipping" (like when a Record Album used to skip) (I know, I'm showing my age....) The screen went black and I could not turn my phone off. I tried to hold down the home button at the bottom and nothing happened. Pushed the top button - nothing - pushed them together - nothing...
Finally after 5 minutes of very annoying noise, it re-set itself.

IPhone :: 3GS - Music Track Skipping And Playing Silence
Some music tracks play sections of silence, others are skipping randomly like a scratched record. This happens when playing on the built-in speakers or on headphones. Tracks affected can be either CD imports or iTunes purchases.
I have the latest iTunes update, I have iOS4, I have re-synched, restored the phone multiple times, checked my hard drive... What can be the cause of this? I am prepared to do whatever it takes to solve the problem but I have run out of ideas. The Genii Apple Store have no idea what's causing it.
iPhone is proving not to be viable as a music player. I now have to carry my old iPod in addition to my iPhone if I want music.

IPhone :: Music Skipping / Voice Control Clicking On And Off
I have had a problem the last few days when i am listening to music on my iPhone 4. songs that are playing are skipping to the next or previous tracks, cutting out completely or starting again. Also the voice control keeps clicking on & off. is anyone else experiencing these problems or has a solution on this. i am not sure if it is a software problem, hardware or even the headphones that are the problem. i shouldn't think it is hardward as there are no moving parts but as it has occcured when phone has been stationary or in my pocket while walking i am unsure of the cause.
