    Rebooting? No, rebooting is just the process of turning your phone off and on. Think of turning a computer off and on. Nothing will be lost.

    Just like a PC, you'll want to reboot every now & again. Keeps cache clean & phone running smoothly.

    I have the same issue; I also can't receive calls. I have tried rebooting several times and no luck. I'm running the Pete's rooted 2.1 mod.

    So my buddie went to the Verizon store today finally and all they did was a factory reset. Now his phone works again, he had to redownload all his apps but it works now. So for all out there try a factory reset and that should be the trick to fix it.
