    X2 crashes at least once a day

    Hello everyone, new X2 owner here and LOVING the dual core. I had gone through 2 unreliable Samsung Fascinates before Verizon sent me this one (so it's refurbished). So the title basically says it all. It will just randomly say "DROOOID" and the screen will be black for a while, show the Droid eye, then turn back on. Now, the bad thing is that it sometimes does this while I'm in class and MOTO isn't too smart when it comes to simple things like silencing the "DROOOID" when it turns on EVEN when its on silent, so I get yelled at by the teacher a lot. I don't have many apps besides twitter and facebook and instagram. I have just a generic silicone case that keeps the speaker/ventilation hole clear. Also a generic matte screen protector. I have never dropped the phone. It restarts mainly when I'm texting fairly heavily. I am running 2.3.5 with the newest software available. Any ideas on what it could be?

    P.s. Im still under a year on my contract, and in a 90 day MOTO warranty.

    The way I see it, you have two things to do here. You need to try a factory data reset... it sounds terrible I know, but you need to try this, and then if this doesn't change anything, you need a new phone.
    To do a factory data reset, first make sure your data is backed up, then go into settings, privacy, tap factory data reset.

    For the best results you should un select the restore option.

    This is a known issue on this device. There are many people that have this issue. I'm fortunate in the fact that mine doesn't do this.

    Hope this helps??

    Ok I will try a reset later. And if this is a known problem, why wouldn't they have resolved this yet?

    I honestly don't know that answer. I know that the x2 my son used to have did this too. I still use my x2, and my x, and a bionic, and two maxx's...I'm hurting for devices

    Best solution is to put Cyanogenmod on the phone. The stock ROM is simply very buggy and is the hardware but CM7 makes the phone much more stable.

    I don't really want to root the phone... because I don't have any experience with that and I'm afraid I'd brick it or something.

    you could try a non stock texting app, there are lots of them

    with the locked bootloader, bricking the X2, is very difficult
    [ROOT] Framaroot, a one-click .apk to root
    Droid 2 (a955), Droid 2 Global (a956), R2D2 (a957), & Droid X (MB810)

    Well I have also noticed that sometimes it does it at random, like in the middle of class. My friend has a Droid RAZR and put an Eclipse ROM on it (I don't know anything about eclipse) and it looks pretty cool.
