About a week ago I made the decision to go from the Motorola Droid 2 to the X. Since then, it's been all downhill, and I fail to understand the reasoning behind it.
The first day I got my X I noticed that when it was booted, things kept disappearing from the screens. The basic arrangement that all new Droids have with apps and widgets were on the screens when I booted, but after going into the market place to download my new apps and closing out, I noticed everything had disappeared. Not that I am complaining, I don't use that stuff anyway, but it has happened a few times since with my normal app arrangements. I have factory restored, but it continues to happen on occasion.
Not such a big deal, however the next two issues are getting a little taxing.
The phone freezes constantly, and I am not talking a couple of seconds or minutes, I am talking fully frozen to the point of necessary battery pulling to make it operational again. On top of it's freezing it constantly crashes core applications like "G-mail" when in the middle of using them for downloads, or simply reading messages. I don't understand what could be causing it, I have installed no new apps that haven't been on prior phones, so I am fairly certain it's not a bad app. (And if it was, the factory restore should have fixed it, right?)
And lastly the phone absolutely refuses to read my SD card at random intervals. Twice it has said the card has nothing on it, when it in fact has. It has been wiped and formatted, and it continues to have the same problem.
I seem to have the touch of death with every smart phone I get (hence why I've been through the Eris, the Motorola Droid 1&2, and now the X all within the last year and a half) but I never really had the chance to get to this phone since it was doing it from the second I booted it up. Is there a way to fix these issues, or should I just take it back to the store and claim programing fault? Really getting sick of faulted phones, and have probably visited Verizon at least 20 times within the last year and a half alone. (No joke. 9 Storms, 1 Tour, 2 Eris', 2 Motorola Droids, and 2 Motorola Droid 2's, two of which visits were actually by fault of my own and not the device itself.) So... I have reluctance on taking my device back to the store if it can be helped... don't want a refurb.
