    Hi,

    I bought a iPad 3 today.

    Seemed to work fine when we first switched it on to go through the set up process. I switched it off for 20 mins after calling Telstra to activate the sim. When I switched it back on the apps began opening / closing / typing furiously all by themselves. I would close one, and another would spring open.

    I have switched it on/off again. I have reset it. I have left it alone and It keeps on happening, though it has slowed down now and maybe one app will open now and then.

    Is this a weird glitch? Do I need to return it?

    Would love to hear your advice!

    Operating like that more or less out of the box, gets it back to where you got it from immediately. It sounds like a dud. Possibly a hardware fault with the touchscreen?
