    Good for you BigBossRob3. I could not even get into any of the apps to be able to change anything around.

    Thanks doddpower. I called Verizon and they walked me through the factory reset and all seems to be working now. Unfortunately now it's a matter of downloading all the apps I've lost. I was doing so good on all 3 Angry Birds games too, LOL!!

    Sad to hear that, but glad to find I was not the only one. They looked at me like I had three heads when I went into the store.
    The part that bugs me is they appear to be lost from the backup assistant? Isn't this the reason I have a backup?

    CAn anybody help us?

    As long as you link your original gmail account you used to purchase your apps with initially they will be sitting right there in the market for you when you return. ;-) Under "downloads" in the market.

You just may have the same, although strange, luck I did.

    Anyone know how it reverted to the updated software upon a factory reset?

    A factory reset wipes the data without changing the current OS. GB 2.3 is your current OS, therefore that is why it stayed on GB.

    An SBF requires you to hook your phone up to a computer and install ("Flash") a stock file. This returns your phone to the original OS, which in our case would be Froyo 2.2.

    If you continue to have issues with GB, you might want to go back to Froyo until the kinks get worked out.

    I already posted this but if I were you guys I would SBF and then take the OTA again. That is the only way I have been able to get GB to work correctly on DX's.

    Hey everyone, i know this topic has probably been touched upon, but i've been going through numerous threads and haven't exactly come across an answer. Hopefully someone can help shed some light on this situation.

    So, after i dl'd Gingerbread OTA, my phone sh!t the bed. They had to overnight me a new one and everything. I set up all my accounts (FB, Twitter, etc.) and noticed that only about 70% of my contacts' photos loaded. I figured maybe because i had so many, it was taking longer than usual, but its the next day and still, there hasnt been any changes. I also dl'd the FB app, and there's no option to sync contacts now? Also, under My Accounts, there's no option to sync FB photo's to your contacts as there was before?

    So, question is how come only some of my photos won't load to my contacts? I've even gone into certain contacts and it shows their FB link, but no photo for some reason? If there is a way to fix this, i'd appreciate the help.

    Angry Me too!

    I have only had my DX for about 3 weeks. I got the update this morning and experienced the same problem. I tried to factory reset but when I get to the Droid screen with the exclamation point, nothing else happens. I called VZW and they are sending a replacement. Very sad...
