I discovered this when a message came in while the phone is connected to PC using the USB cable.
I used pattern lock and as I was trying to access my phone, I can't get it. As I touch the screen the phone creates patterns of its own. I was only able to access or use the phone after I unplugged it from the USB cable.
I disabled the pattern lock. And did further testing. And I was able to confirm it. I am not able to press any icon. The phone reacts differently like when I press the phone icon, the phone reacts as if I am trying to place a widget on the screen. Random things happen.
I removed the cable again and the phone is okay. I went to texting screen and plugged the USB back, I can't type because other letters get type by themselves.
This doesn't happen when the phone is connected to its charger though. So I am sure it is not the cable. I used other PC, same thing happens.
What could be wrong? Did anybody experienced this?

Thanks for quick reply.
There are no casing what-so-ever is in use.
I had to unplug the phone from the PC to follow your instructions...
Android Version: 2.3.4
Build Version: 4.0.2.A.0.42
There you go...

Same thing happens.
Guess what, I connected the phone to the Netbook, and it is working as expected. I reverted to the USB settings based from your instructions, and it still works.
Must be the USB port, no?
