viper - thanks to your reply re: my phone getting stuck at the eye. It is a random problem - not sure if it will happen again. I tried going into safe mode and it booted normally. However, I now have a problem after booting back into regular mode. I'm getting a message on my screen stating "problem loading widget". This has never happened before and 99.9% sure it must be because of the boot into safe mode. How do I solve this?
I deleted the application/widgets that may not be loading properly - Beautiful Widgets and Battery Life. I then reinstalled them to no effect. I also pulled the battery and memory card and did not reboot for 5+minutes. I'm at a loss now.
I'd appreciate any comments you may have. I would caution others about going into safe mode - it was not safe for me and has borked my 3 home screens.
UPDATE: After playing around with holding down the message banner saying problem loading widget - this message was present on all 3 home screens - had the power widget on one, the battery life widget on another and the beautiful widgets on the 3rd (that one had the message twice on the screen). - I was able to deposit them by holding them down and placing them in the trash. All 3 screens are now clear. I then was able to download all the widgets again and everything seems normal again. I won't be going into safe mode again any time soon.

i had the env2 previously. ive been with verizon since the airtouch days. with my last phone i never had a dropped call that i can remember.
many times i have called while having the phone away from my face, starting at it. not to mention, it says call lost. i've tried with google voice, i've tried without. i have switched the settings as far as evrc (sp), etc. etc.
the only thing i can say, is that my old phone (when its on, which it hasnt been for a week or so now) still gets random texts. they get intercepted by the old phone so that my new phone never gets them. but when i tried to make a call with the old phone, it gave me some roaming network sales **** (im assuming verizon sells those lines to a 3rd party)

I usually do swap back to my first conversation but at times when someone from a landline calls and we hang up their phone does not disconnect it just keeps me on hold (i guess because their phone thinks it just switched lines idk) I just want to know if there is anyway to manually disconnect without disconnecting on both parties.
And that sux about the call waiting beep lol i ignore alot of ppl but i dont want them to know im ignoring them >_> jus dont wanna go through that whole "why didnt you pick up?" moment
Thanks for the help and sorry for double posting I was hoping maybe anyone could of just answered it lol I cant be the only one that wants to know how to hang up on one line and not the other lol can i?
One other question viper - on my Droid I have a little bit of play near the magnifying glass on the bottom of the screen above the Verizon label (not on the screen itself - it's one of the 4 lighted buttons below the screen). If I press down on that side of the phone, I get a slight up and down motion that results in a clicking sound. On my friends Droid, his fit is tighter and he does not get the clicking sound. His slide out keyboard is tighter as well and does not slide out as smoothly as mine. I assume many of the Droids have slight differences like this. I'm wondering if this play will get worse and if it makes sense to exchange it. It doesn't have a big impact on my use of the phone now but it could become a nuisance if the play gets worse. Any thoughts? Thanks!
What causes that is pretty much just a network glitch depending on how a text is routed. Sometimes, it will just look for a phone number to send a message to, not a phone number AND an ESN/MEID. Like if someone calls your Droid and leaves you a VM and your old LG is on, you might be notified on both phones because the network just sends that notification of a VM to any phone with your number.
