Hello everyone - I apologize for this long post.
I am using a non rooted Verizon DroidX running Android 2.3.3 and System Version 4.5.602.
I will have the phone one year Sept. 24th so it is less than one year old. I am on my 3rd DroidX courtesy of Verizon's warranty program.
The current phone is about 3 months old and was running well - no freeze ups, lock ups, etc. until a few weeks ago. I don't actually know if the problems started after or before 2.3.3 was downloaded and installed.
These are the problems I am now having as of 2 weeks ago:
1) The phone freezes and locks up. Pushing the buttons or trying to power it OFF has no effect. I have to do a battery pull.
2) I will be using the phone and it just goes crazy - apps open and close by themselves without me touching anything. I have to do a battery pull to make it stop.
3) When I turn the phone OFF, sometimes, not all the time the phone turns itself back ON by itself.
4) The phone's performance is extremely sluggish - it's like the processor is off doing something else. I am using Go Launcher EX.
I am using Watchdog Lite to monitor mis-behaving apps and there are no indications of bad apps. I am using Lookout to scan my apps for anti-virus and I am sure that the phone is clean. I only install apps from the Android market and I only have 34 downloaded and installed which I don't think is excessive.
I really like the DroidX when it works good, and I expect any phone that I buy to work good with no problems.
I am eligible for a new contract renewal and a new phone in May of 2012. With the above said, Verizon tech support will give me a $92 credit toward any new 3G Android phone (not the iPhone) and will let me renew for 2 more years now instead of waiting until May of next year. I'm really getting tired of fighting the Droid-X issues I am having.
If I take Verizon up on their offer I am trying to convince myself NOT to get the DroidX 2 due to all of the issues with the Droid X. I am considering the HTC Incredible 2 as my wife has this phone and I really like it, plus it has very good reviews.
I am also trying to convince myself to bit the bullet and keep the DroidX with or without the problems that come and go and wait until May of next year so I can renew my 2 year Verizon contract with no restrictions and buy the iPhone.
I would really appreciate any thoughts you may have on my issues.
