    I have that issue sometimes, but it's not tied to the phone being plugged in. Seems to happen when it's been locked for a while, and I wonder if it has to do with lockscreen widgets updating.

    Are you using the original USB cable + plug? I have the same issue with my Lumia 800 if I use other USB chargers with different specs (1VA instead of 0.5VA for example). If so, it might well be your power network which is oscillating.

    i've also noticed on my 920 that it swiping (especially up and down) is horrible when plugged in. unplug it, give it 5 seconds, and voila. :\ i'm using a not-nokia USB cable and an iphone charger.

    I had that issue before on my HD7. But it was with a specific USB charger I had. When plugged in the screen was unresponsive (took several swipes to unlock sometimes) and erratic (scrolling would be very jerky and the display would register hits that never took place). Haven't seen it yet on my 920

    I have a similar issue with my new 920. Its fine when using the Nokia charger (regardless of which cable I connect), but other chargers, which, according to their specs, have the same output of 1.0A, cause the issue.

    I can only assume it is a bug, and will be fixed, because if not, then Nokia is effectively saying if you want to plug the device into, for example, your PC, for charging and syncing, the device is basically unusable for the duration.

    Same here, works fine with the Nokia charger, but when I plugged it into a HTC charger once, the touchscreen got all weird.

    It very well can be your charger, and not the phone. I had similar issues with my Zune HD. I would try a different charger before swapping the phone. You may just have a bad charger. I am using my old samsung charger form my Focus and I have no issues with touch when plugged in.
