Hey guys I was wondering if it's everyone's phone of just mine. I have the 4s. When I am charging the phone and have it flat on a surface whenever I try and do anything on the phone it goes crazy. If i Pick up the phone and try or remove the charger and just try using it while its on its back it works fine Im planning on returning it to my local sprint store tomorrow for a replacement. Can any1 let me know if they have a similar situation?

I have only seen this behavior on Android devices. But the theory may apply to your situation.

When the phone is charging, the grounding of it changes. Which allows the touch screen to register touches in the wrong location. Normally this is caused by a bad cable or a bad connection at the charging point. If only happens in one position, that could explain a lot of your issue.

For fun, take the cable while the phone is flat, and pull up on it slightly and see if that changes the condition.
