    Smile Droid X Gingerbread Update Problems

    I received the Gingerbread update this morning. It installed on my phone and then my phone basically became unusable. The screen would freeze and I couldn't do anything. I couldn't even turn it off. I would take out the battery, put it back in, turn the phone back on, and it would keep doing the same thing. Finally, I took out the SD card and it seems to be working fine. Why is this? Do I need a new SD card? Any suggestions?!? Thanks for your help!!!

    Same problem for me on a Droid X, except that removing the SD card didn't help. The phone is completely useless at the moment. Any help would be great! Thanks.

    I did the factory Gingerbread update this weekend and I lost my phone contacts. For some reason I lost a dozen or so contacts that I had linked with facebook contacts. Before the update I could view facebook contacts and phone contacts seperately. With the new update is there still a way to seperate contacts? The contacts that are gone were also removed from my backup assistant. Also, is there any suggestions on how to retrieve the lost contacts back?

    the same exact thing happened to me. i havent tried taking out the SD card yet though. i went straight into verizon and they are overnighting me a new phone. i figured it was just an issue my particular device was having handling the update because my mom's and a friend's Droid X updated just fine. ill let u know if the new phone makes any difference.

    Thumbs up Answers!

    This same thing happened to me. I updated my Droid X and it would constantly freeze and even to point where i would push the unlock button and the camera would come on with no on screen buttons. But there is a way to fix it.

    1. Go to ur dialer and enter *228
    2. Press number two
    3. Follow the instructions after that
    4. If it doesnt restart, turn off ur phone
    5. Take out the battery and wait ten seconds with the battery out
    6. Put the battery back in and turn on ur phone

    It should be good from there...u needed to upgrade ur roaming which goes along with speed...please comment and reply and tell me if this worked for or not.

    EXACT same thing happening to me. I installed the OTA update, and the phone boots. Then it becomes completely unresponsive generally going to a black screen with the information bar at the top still active. If I hit the power button I can turn the screen on and off. Give me a break. This is really annoying me. I can't do anything on the phone to fix it because it's unresponsive.

    Someone please help? Can I roll back to the previous version of is this phone toast?
