    Wandering Cursor causes Screen to move by itself

    I'm having an issue with my "cursor" moving by itself. When I'm typing an email or a text message, the cursor will sometimes move off of the message box where I am typing and I will have to tap the screen to move it back to the right place. Sometimes it keeps doing it over and over which is really annoying. Also, when I'm on the main screen, sometimes the screen will change like it does when you "flip" it to the left (move your finger from right to left). The cursor always seems to move to the right, which makes the screen move left. It doesn't do this all the time, just off and on. Is anyone else having this problem or does anyone have a solution?

    I am all of a sudden having this problem. I will unlock the phone and its like a ghost is using the trackball to move it to an icon without me doing it on the home screen. Also when Im typing is moves of the text area and i have to touch back in the box. Very frustrating. I am thinking of doing a factory reset and see if it helps.

    Yes. I have this same issue.

    When typing in a text box in the browser, the screen will jump around, to where I can't see what I'm typing. This is in PORTRAIT mode. It will do this automatically, so sometimes I'm not able to type because the screen won't stop jumping.

    I had this EXACT same problem with my mt3g. it got so bad that I couldn't type in portrait at all...so I dropped it for the Moto Cliq. Perhaps this is a weird bug with htc phones...(trackball sensor maybe?) Oh no! I'm looking into getting an N1 but I sure don't want this to happen again!
