Had the same problem with the Scoop. Hate it. At least the annoying Scoop doesn't activate since I turned off both of the previous suggestions. I only have voice and texting activated on my account. All other downloading and SMS is blocked. But I too have the partially lighted display and the "Browse and Download" menu appearing occasionally. What seems to be activating that is the "Backup Assistant" application. I have seen it appear briefly when I open the display. I think that the "B&D" menu just gets hung up from time to time when the "BA" finishes its check/update. Now if my phone would just stop occasionally restarting on its own when I slide it open, touch a button, or view a txt. Got a "new" phone on its way to see if it's just the phone or if it was the software update that occurred on 13 June 2011.
