    Unhappy My Phone is Possessed

    First, several weeks ago, it started doing strange things. I would power down, it would come back on. I would be entering a status update on Facebook, it would all of a sudden be trying to identify a tune on Shazam- or in my email! My camera would come on for no reason- often when I wasn't even holding the phone- and it would not respond to commands, but snap pictures whenever it felt like it. My desktop icons would disappear to be replaced by random program icons. It would restart spontaneously- the list goes on. You get the idea. So my provider went through steps with me, and it was determined to send me a new phone 2 days ago. In the meantime, I turned it on yesterday evening and there's a grayed kind of stripe down the right half of the phone and the icons are faint and washed out. I restarted several times, examined it in various lights with my reading glasses- the glass looked clear and new. (I bought the $40 (!!) cover with the flap when I bought it, and it's always in my handbag, so very protected) and I see a little scratchy- looking irregular line around the right bottom corner. I rubbed my finger over it- no scratch- apparently a fine crack. Now there are three more fine cracks along the right upper edge and it has NEVER BEEN DROPPED or hit or anything!!! I protect this baby like it's gold!

    So now I'm concerned that my provider will get the phone back and blame me for dropping it, which never happened, and make me pay for the new one.

    Anyone else ever hear of anything weird like this?

    Thanks.

    Sounds like you got a dud. It's evil. If talks to you don't listen. It's all lies. Do you have insurance?

    Not .......yet. But I did notice it first had a mind of its own when, after using every "acceptable" verbal command for a photo snap, I shouted (deleted by moderator) and it snapped away... It is possessed. And maybe even has Tourette's.

    Edit Note: I had to edit the expletive out of the post.

    The replacement is enroute, due to be delivered on Monday. But the cracks appeared after they agreed to send a replacement. It is just bizarre. I am not going to pay for a new one. Getting ready for battle!

    No insurance. I have never dropped nor broken or damaged any phone. It has always been given the best care- and THIS is how it repays me. Now we'll see what T-Mobile will do...........
