    I have an really weird thing goin on in my windows phone. Yesterday i connected to this free wifi hotspot, and weird things start happen. It redirect me into some spanish site by openiny my browser and i think i was conected to somewhere.
    So after this my phone started very strange. It open my mailbox, my fb, my fb inbox, pictures, basically evertyhig on a start screen. It took over 80 screenshot! and this all happen by itself! i couldnt turn it off, only slow it down a lil bit. after few minutes of battling with my phone which was still opening all the applications in random order all the time,vibrating and stuff. i finally got to shut it down. so i waited for a little time before opening it again. and because i saw this message when it saves screenshots, i open my photo folder and counted over 80 screenshots. and by this time my phone was open for few minutes now. then it started doin this again! it took me few minutes to get it shutdown. and i dint open it for rest of the day. today in morning i open it and it still goiin crazy, opening skype and calling to someone i dont even have on my list!
    and im on holiday in another country and i need to use it because i return in 2 days and i have to call someone to pick me up i airport. but im scared to open this phone now... anyone has a clue whats goin on? and what i can do?
    thanks in advance..

    Perhaps the touchscreen has gone haywire?
    Have you done the typical soft reset? Pressing and holding power + volume down until it vibrates.

    Hate to be the "bad news" guy but is it possible your phone was hacked and taken over? 99.9% it wont happen. But go over EVERYTHING and change any security codes like ebay, amazon, etc....to be on the safe side

    I don't think there's any remote functionality in WP allowing that
