    Way to go! Great info for others too. Often we find that one software is conflicting another so to see the reset fix it is reassuring.

    By the way, it is highly recommended that you refrain from using all but the stock task manager to kill processes. The OS is optimized for that utility and the others eat up system resources, namely the battery.

    Yeah, your right, I took that program out. I like to keep my RAM at least 40-50% free and it was dipping into the mid 30's. So far the only program that I have that does not give me problems is Advanced Task Accelerator. It sort of like does a soft reset and kills all apps to free RAM. I had it for a while, this app is ok with me, the other not so much

    When you hold down all three buttons, does that do a hard reset and just reboots your phone, correct?

    Holding all three buttons while the phone is ON does nothing but cause the vibration motor to run constantly until you release them. Holding all three from a full power-off starts the phone into the Boot Mode Selection Menu for Recovery, AP Fastbooot and several other options. If you make no selection in that menu, after several seconds it will automatically boot normally.

    The past couple days I have been trying to figure out ways to upload music to my phone. I have MotoCast up an running, but can only get the wireless cloud streaming service to work. There is no option for me in the program to upload via USB like they say there is! SO FRUSTRATING.

    For some reason, my computer does not seem to be recognizing the phone. It will charge, but that is it. I have tried switching the debugging mode for USB on and off and restarted both machines for each situation. NO LUCK.

    I even tried downloading the drivers manually to my computer! Still nothing! If you guys had any advice for getting my computer to show the SD card on my phone while plugged in, that would be awesome! Or, let me know if there are any programs I should look into. Have already tried DoubleTwist, it was not able to locate my phone being plugged into my computer. Thank you for your time!
    I have started having the same problem. There is no usb icon at the top to pull down. And happens on different computers with different cables, both of which used to work. Not using motocast (why do I need it by the way). The computer just fails to recognize that a device is even plugged in. Help?
