    My 8x (VZW) will just randomly flip out and start making "touches" that I haven't made. At ALL...

    The only thing that fixes it is a lock and unlock...it seems to be triggered most often by the text message app, when I begin to reply to a friend's text.

    Has anyone else had this issue? It's bugging me!

    I have the exact same problem. It went away after the update so I thought it was fixed. It came back yesterday with a vengence. It seems to be happening 1/3 of the time I unlock the phone. I'll see if there is any link with messaging.

    Seems to like tweeting and browsing Facebook once it starts acting up.

    My mom had this problem with her lumia 822. The random touches happened because it was stuck in demo mode. Take it into Verizon and they should be able to turn it off.
