    biggest piece of Cr$P phone

    Ok I have tried and tried with this phone. I was excited when I first got it after moving from a BB 8830. However, now that it has been months since I originally got it on launch day... I have come to the conclusion this phone is horrible.

    Here are my reasons:
    1) half my calls go directly to VM when I "receive" them.
    2) phone is sluggish and freezes.
    3) I have to reboot (battery pull) every other day.
    4) Apps are horrible and suck you in with "free" only get you to upgrade to an even crappier app that requires you to buy the "better" version that actually works.
    5) Emails do not always show up on phone.
    6) Apps freeze up and lock up the phone so I have to pull the battery to get the phone to work.
    7) Verizon's horrible customer service that tells me that my new phone will be replaced with a "refirb" if I do anything about it.
    8) Software upgrade to "Foyo" has rendered my phone in a worse condition.
    9) Constantly loosing 3g for 1x service.
    10) phone is loaded with bloatware that I cannot remove without causing problems with my phone with a "root".

    I'm sure that 90% of you will blast away so go at it. But I'm sure there are more people out there like me that have major problems with this phone.

    No "blasting" here...everyone is entitled to their opinion - my question is - Do you have a task killer installed on your device ?

    ...and VZW's customer service is not a direct reflection on the devices they provide

    I haven't had my Droid X for even two months yet, but my experience has been nothing like yours.

    I have even had a great experience with Verizon support when I called. I got a real person, was able to transfer account to girlfriend, disable SMS, etc. No problem quick and easy. I suppose it could be the type of issue you seem to be experiencing that leads you to think their support is crap, I don't know.

    Also, since I haven't had my phone as long as you and it came with Android 2.2 as stock this may have something to do with our different opinions of the phone.

    I haven't had to install any task killer, either. I just have a shortcut to the stock applications management settings screen and if I want I just list the running apps and can force close from there.

    Making a blanket statement about "apps" is...vague at best. Also, this isn't a reflection on Droid X so much as the quality of the individual apps and/or Android OS in general. I haven't had any problems and when talking with my IPh*ne owning friends have had even fewer issues in general.

    What specifically are you doing on your phone? What apps are auto-launching at boot?

    I suggest trying to get a new device. This is kinda rare. Sounds like your having hardware problems, causing your phone to constantly have issues communicating the the signal towers and constant freezes. If they give you a new device and its still no good, I suggest trying your luck with a different phone.

    I asked about the Task Killer to eliminate some potential problems - if you do have one installed, uninstall it and factory reset and you should see a dramatic increase in overall performance - task killers are nothing but problematic and they reach into the furthest parts of your O/S to create them

    I hate to say it, but this is a scenario, if true, that is fully your fault. Yes, you heard me correctly.

    You have failed to do your due diligence. Your first course of action SHOULD HAVE been to get a new Droid X. There are always bad apples for every tech product. It is the nature of the beast.

    Your experience is not even representative of that for someone with a FULL WORKING Droid X. You should have gotten it replaced. This is your fault so you can't blame anyone but yourself. There are no questions about it.

    Edit: Can you take as picture of your Droid X? Your post is a little unbelievable so I'm thinking you don't even really have one. It seems like many people who DONT ASK FOR ADVICE by instead choose to DEFAKE AND DEGRADE a tech product are TROLLS

    It happens all the time in these forums, and you just so happen to sound like one of people.

    Yeah I'm sorry but what part of "refirb" phone did you not read in the original post? I have had conversations with verizon and I get the same answer.... we can give you a refirb phone but you are not eligible for a new one unless you pay full price.

    Had a task killer on my phone but deleted it b/c it ate up too much memory. That and most posters on here suggested removing it b/c of the memory issues vs the benefits were outweighed by the memory eating.

    Tried to replace it as soon as the phone started to act up and was told I was litterly just past the 30 day option for the new phone. Was told that the best I could get was a refirb.
