    Angry getting really frustrated

    I loved my phone for the first few months. The last few weeks...not so much

    1) mediaplayer automatically turns on when I plug in headphones and is a PITA to turn off.

    2) I get a call and answer it...and I can't hear anything. Reboot the phone and back to normal. The caller could hear me just fine. Its done this 4 times now

    3) it mysteriously turned itself off yesterday. No warning, just off.

    4) while its on its docking station (Motorola part), the weather quit displaying -- degrees. Also while on the docking station its not gone into dock mode before. If I remove it from the dock and put it back, it will work, but why does it take two tries?

    I think you have an app that's not playing nice with your phone. Here's what you need to do. Do a hard reset and remove everything except the basics. See how it performs for a day or so. Then start adding your apps back on. See if you can't find the one that's causing you an issue.

    BTW, if you have Advance Task Killer I'd try removing that first. That's been known to cause issues on other peoples phones and just removing it fixed them.

    Hmmmm, I just removed about 9 apps...not all but the ones that are left are ones I used for months with no issue. Will do a hard reset and see how it goes. Thanks!

    Here's my current list of apps....after removing ones that MAY be faulty. These should be ok...correct?

    Droid Light
    Google Maps
    Bank of America mobile banking
    Pandora
    Photobucket
    Shazam
    The Weather Channel

    Hopefully all is well.

    I don't fully understand the error, but I don't believe its something you can fix. Speakerphone for it will probably work though. Because I had the same problem happen to me (VZW gave me a new droid though, and now its allll better)

    P.S. this is for number three.

    No idea what's causing it? It did it today, I was listening to pandora then got a call and when I answered it...no sound (yes, headphones were unplugged).
    Then I went to play a youtube video, no sound again. Reboot and its back to normal, but for how long?

    It also did no sound from a call on Sunday night. Reboot and back to normal...until this morning.

    Yes, when it story still fails after all that you need to replace the phone. If I were you I'd do it with Verizon over the phone. But that's up to you. Some Verizon stores may want to duplicate the problem. If they hassle you just walk out and call Verizon.

    Auto-play of default media player - very annoying, no idea how to get rid of it,

    Phone seaker not working after something was plugged in headphones jack - a known problem (google for it), pluging/unpluging something again usually helps, I solved it by going bluetooth only... BTW speakerphone still works so if it happens you can sort of solve the problem immediately ...

    Reboots - it happens sometime, if it happens too often try to figure out which app is responsible.
