    Title pretty much sums it up. Runaway typing, clicking on links, and it almost reported a friend on Facebook. Anyone else having this issue?

    Those symptoms typically reflect water damage, but if you’re certain that it is not, I recommend you restore your device and then set it up as new....NOT from a backup!

    Most definitely not water damage.

    Hopefully a simple restore will fix the issue

    Nope, it’s misbehaving even worse now.

    Did you restore it as new?

    If you did, and the issue is still there, then you might want to visit an Apple Store to have it looked at.

    Is there an Apple Store nearby?
    They should take a look at it.
    Nope. And even if there was, I doubt they would have parking for a tractor trailer. I will have to wait until my week ends when I can get to the Apple Store where I live.

    Could I get a replacement at a Verizon store? I know of a few I could park at.

    Since I'm not from the US, I can't really answer that for you.
    Hopefully, someone else will be able to help out soon

    I doubt a Verizon store would help, they'd likely just have you call Apple for repair/replacement. Then again, with many Apple Stores being in malls, it seems like some malls would have an area where you could park -- at least long enough to visit a couple of stores in the mall.

    As others have said, I think you will need to take the device to a Apple store and get a replacement.

    I would search the area your in and see if there is a Apple store close to where you are.

    I would think you could get into a major mall with a semi truck because they make deliveries to those places all the time. Just a thought.

    Yes, malls have docks for deliveries, but nowhere in the lot to park without incurring a large fine. And, if your not delivering there, they’re not going to like having their docks blocked.

    And that’s assuming I can find an Apple Store in route. That can be a tough task in itself.

    Perform an exorcism. Make sure you use white sage and circle it around the device. This should help cleanse it and restore it to its former glory...

    I appreciate the attempt at humor, but right now, it’s taking all of my energy to keep myself from snapping. It’s been that kind of week.

    Dispatch got me home. Went to the Apple Store. Defective screen. They replaced it under warranty. Things seem to be better now. They said though if it happens again, it is probably the phone, and they’ll replace it.

    Glad you were able to get it taken care of. Hope that it works now, that you don't have to replace the phone.
