My Phone goes crazy once I step outside a building or start walking down the road

My Phone goes crazy once I step outside a building or start walking down the road. noticed it for about 2 weeks now. The selector keeps running down the phone screen as if the track pad was stuck in the down position. Once I enter a building or a car, it returns to normal.
Happened like everyday for the past 10 days. :smileysad:
I find this really frustrating. Any clues as to what might be wrong? Please help.

Sounds like the GPS locations service is creating problems, hence the reason it only seems to happen when you step outside, try turning it off: Options > Device > Location Settings > Location Services > change to Location Off

Done that already, but the problem still persists.

Is your wifi on by any chance?

Geotagging  on or off?, if not then i can think of anything else that could cause this to happen

Be sure to back up everything also try the following.

Simply said go into options> device > Device and Status information- type in test , it will run an app which test each and every thing of your BB. See what the result could be and we take it from there.


Also how old is your device? and are you running 7.1 os?
