    I've had some luck then I purchased droid X on release day and haven't had any issues whats so ever with it. I'm connected to neighbors wifi here at work with a simple click. I've never had restarts other than from user error< oc/ulc and other stuff where I am to blame for the issues> at home i'm running through my uverse router/modem with no issues and ran just as good with my linksys. Did you possibly have any certain apps installed on the old phone that you might have installed on the new phone prior to any issues? Sucks your having these issues hopefully they get resolved.

    Well, I FINALLY got a new one last night. As of this morning, the phone had locked up numerous times, shut down several times on it's own and I have had to take the battery out several times to get it to turn back on. It is sitting here beside me at my desk waiting for me to take the battery out. Not going to. It's going back to the store like this.

    I don't know what CRAP Verizon is selling but I have had it with the Droid X. I am not even running any apps on the d*amn thing. I haven't had a phone that has worked properly in 2 1/2 weeks. I wish I could see what high speed, reliable gear you guys are seeing- but enough is enough.
    BigBuck, shoot me a PM and let's get this thing sorted. We can root that phone and try a new ROM on there so you can have an awesome phone that you will LOVE! I have over 150 apps on my phone with great battery life, no freezes, and it is VERY fast!

    I may have had a bad app, I have no idea. I did have a task killer on (Battery Saver) and got rid of it. So far it has acted normal the last few hours. That is certainly a possibility. I just wish these apps were vetted before they put them on the app store. Seems a bad way to piss people off and blame the hardware.

    As far as rooting, which was suggested, I don't know much about it. Perhaps someone can provide this novice with a brief explanation as to what it is and also if it voids the warranty of the phone as well as drawbacks.

    Thanks, All, for the help.

    The only vetting process is in the comments and most people who write that it didn't work don't bother to say which phone that tried it on. grrrrr. That is why, unlike most people suggest, I use a task killer set to manual.I use Advance Task Killer and set it to tap brings up force kill option. If my phone acts stupid I force close any new or newly updated apps one at a time to find the rogue app , uninstall it , leave a comment with phone model. Yes it's a bit of a nuisance but I realize Android is where Apple was about 4 years ago and the upside is worth it to me.
    Glad it's working better and hope the problem has been solved now.
    Once my router was set up I've not had any issues other than a new cordless phone in the house interfered with the wifi on all devices but a router channel change solved that.

    Just Fyi- I have had the second phone for several days now and it is acting up as well. I must have a bad app but the ones I have on there are maistream and should not cause issues.

    I don't really know what to do at this point; if I can't run the likes of Yahoo, Pandora, etc. apps- doesn't seem to be much of a reason to have this thing.

    I might go back and swap out for the Droid Global or maybe one of the Samsung models. Don't really want to, but my luck with these isn't very good. The guys that work at the store are absolutely useless as well.

    Swapping out for a D2G gives you the X with world wide capabilities and a smaller screen, a little different camera. That's about it.

    I don't know why you're having the issues that your having but I will say this: The Droid isn't for everybody. You shouldn't have to root it to get it to work perfectly, it does that right out of the box. I have seen people go through several of them sometimes before they get one that work, I've also seen many people who for whatever reason just couldn't figure it out. So if you do decide to try a different Android phone you can try another brand, but if that still gives you issues then maybe Android isn't for you.

    I was hoping to get one to work right out of the box as well. If you have seen people go through several, then maybe I just keep exchanging.

    This thing will shut down during activities like texting. It just did that a minute ago. Was texting my wife, the screen locked up and it shut itself down. No apps were running at the time. Now I have to wait to see if it turns itself back on or if I have to pull the battery.

    I am simply looking to use the features it has, not looking to do anything really heavy like some of the people on here. In that sense, it should have no problems handling what little I throw at it. I love the feature, I just need a doggone phone that works right.

    I did load Launcher Pro app as suggested by zo6Mike, other than that, I'm not running any app killersor anything unusual.

    I can't help but wonder if a "fix permissions" would help him out?
