Only problem I've had is the phone shuts off automatically sometimes, even with full battery. It's happened three times since I bought it on release date (7/15).
Other than that, it's been great.
So you know when you hold on an icon or widget on the home screens? It turns green and you can move it around...yeah, it works for a while, then it stops working!
I do a reboot and it then works again, but it only works for a while.
Has anyone else had this problem?
EDIT: Now when I go to move an icon around (click and hold) I move it to another spot on the screen, it doesn't show green for "drop here" and when I let go, it disappears....is there some sort of hard reset cause I know it helps when I reboot my cell, but only for a while.

I love this phone, but I am having issues with latitude and my GPS being off. Anyone else seeing this and if yes, what did you do? All of my settings are correct and it still puts me 2-3 blocks SW of my actual location.
Android is so different, but once you see the capabilities, and how wide open the platform is, you'll be hooked.
As for your homescreen issue, no Droid phone homescreen switches to landscape with the stock UI. but, if you load Launcher Pro, it does.
My Droid X will not ring upon incoming calls, it resorts to vibrating everytime. My ringtone used to work and play loud, but now all it does is resort to a default vibration.
I have uninstalled all apps, rebooted in safe mode. I've done a factory reset after spending an hour on the phone with 2 VZW reps, and this problem has returned.
Sound and Display information:
Silent Mode: Box is Grayed out (off)
Ringer Volume: Slider is all the way to the right (see NOTE*)
Phone Ringtone is set to the default Droid X ringtone (which worked initially after turning my phone on the first time)
Phone Vibrate box is Grayed out (off)
Both Smart Sensor Settings at the bottom are grayed out (off)
NOTE* When going into Sound and Display Settings and moving the Ringer Volume slidebar, the ringtone plays LOUD and as it should. Also noted is that I'm not an idiot, the sound is turned all the way up with the volume rocker on the side.
Another note is that incoming text messages work as they should, with the ringtone going off (DRRROOOOOIIIDDD).
List of previously installed Apps:
Dolphin HD Browser
Kindle for Android
Adobe PDF Viewer
Google Stars (point at sky to see constellations, can't remember exact name)
The Weather Channel
Facebook for Android
If any other information is needed, just ask (through a PM preferentially). Thanks.
