    He is saying 2.2 needs to fix 2.1 problems or it won't be any better than 2.1.

    It probably should have read: Froyo must stop 2.1 reboot problems.
    Exactly.

    I am totally dreading erasing everything on the phone. Reinstalling everything will take hours to do as it is a total, absolute PITA on the Droid. There is no such thing as restoring to an earlier state either. Regardless of whether I wipe everything, the bottom line is the OS should portion.

    Fact: More than just a few people are reporting delays when the phone rings before it will actually answer. This has to be fixed. I'm happy that some of you don't have problems, even if it's 60% of you. Even a 25% failure rate is way too high.

    I also hope 2.2 will provide some type of full backup system. I had this argument with other Palm-heads. Give me desktop sync any day if cloud computing only backs up a portion of the data on the phone (and requires Google to keep copies of all my data for a year plus.)

    I love the Droid a lot. But if I can't get this kind of reliability, I'll be eying the new Blackberry with the touchscreen and keyboard. Yikes... can't believe that is happening!
    If you use the factory data reset in the privacy section your apps should all be in your downloads when you sign back into your phone. It's not that big of a deal, I've done it before and it doesn't take hours. 30 minutes, if that long.

    FWIW this is not an OS issue but rather an application issue. Bad apps cause bad things to happen on peoples Droids. I ran 2.1 problem free. 2.2 is working great too, and that is what the majority, not just 60% but the vast majority are experiencing.

    It's way more like 0.7% if you look at the overall sales... if it were 25% there would be tens of thousands of complaints instead of aa few hundred...

    There are app options that solve all of your file issues my friend especially if your rooted...I'm guessing you dont want to be, or you dont know what that is. Either way though, there are apps that allow you to sync to your home computer, as well as apps that will back up your entire system (all though I'm not sure if any of those are available for non-rooted phones.

    Good luck

    I see where the phone chokes at times. I have 4 accounts setup on K-9. I have it set to check email every 15 or 30 minutes, usually the latter. The phone seems to choke badly when it is checking email or doing something with K-9 and OS 2.1. As a result, if it was downloading email, deleting emails, whatever, Android can't seem to just stop what it is doing to answer the phone or dial. It hangs there for a while and sometimes I'll get the wait/force quite dialog box.

    I know I'm far from the only one with the answer problems. There is a thread here of several others with the same issue. I'm just hoping that Google will finally protect the phone portion. I think Verizon's CDMA based phones need it more than any other phone. No more Goggles or other Google app. Make the phone app rock solid!!!!

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but all smartphones have software problems from time to time.

    Blackberries crash, iPhones crash, Droids crash, WinMo phones crash, just do a Google search and you'll see that they all have problems.

    If you treated your phone like a computer (rebooted it every other day or so), you may have better results.

    Almost all of us have rock solid devices, truth is, most of us don't try to win uptime contests with our phones and the occasional reboot does wonders to ensure that when the phone rings, it won't screw up.

    It is obvious with your statement "I'm just hoping that Google will finally protect the phone portion. I think Verizon's CDMA based phones need it more than any other phone. No more Goggles or other Google app. Make the phone app rock solid!!!!" that you aren't familiar with the OSI model, or the fundamentals of operating system design.

    This isn't your first gripe post about your phone that reboots every now and then. The pity party must end at some point. Please do one of the following:

    1) Reboot your phone every day or so like the rest of us probably do (it takes less than 2 minutes).

    2) Get a Blackberry and fill their forums with your whining cause your Blackberry will crash just like every other smartphone on the market.

    BB 0.2.1 boots in under 1 minute, in 90 seconds all the widgets have loaded and everything is good to go.

    Even if it is 5 minutes for some folks, there has to be something you all do routinely that separates you from your phone long enough to give it a chance to reboot (potty break, shower, dinner, etc.).
