    Talking Hi, I'm Trish, and I'm on my 3rd Droid

    I went to look at the Droid when it first came out. I was due for an upgrade on Nov 5th, so it was like a calling.... but when I went to look at it, I HATED the keyboard. 2 weeks later, my old phone's battery stops charging and I wasn't going to spend any $ on that thing.... so I decided to just get the Droid. That one stopped charging and the dudes at the Verizon store couldn't get it to do anything so they gave me a replacement. My second one starting acting really weird:

    Problems I was having:

    -Phone screen would turn off as soon as I made a call. It wouldn't wait until I put it to my ear, so calling voicemail was impossible from that phone unless I slid open the phone just to punch my code in.... ANNOYING.

    -Phone screen would stay on, on incoming calls thus resulting in my face hanging up the call.

    -Phone screen would NEVER come back on when I wanted to end a call.

    - I would get error codes of death randomly when trying to call voicemail. It would say that the call could not be performed, yet it was placing the call.

    - When receiving a text message, I would go to open it, and the text would not show up. I would then have to hit the back button, then go back into the message and like magic it finally was there.

    -The phone LAGGED severely, unlike my first Droid.

    Apparently I should have searched this forum before doing 3 factory resets and finally getting a new one under warranty. I now know not to bother with the Advanced Task Killer!

    I hope I get the award for longest introductory post.

    Oh... my name is Trish, I race cars, scuba dive, sky dive, and do other awesome things. No, I'm not available.

    hello trish,

    that sounded like a AA intro lol

    sorry to hear about your issues with the droid so far. i had to return my first one as the physical keyboard backlight never came on. it appears the one issue a lot of the phones have had relate to the built in sensors which detect proximity, light levels and so fourth.
    i sure hope you get one that doesnt give you any issues soon. my 2nd one has been perfect. and i too have recently realized with help of this forum that the task killers are pointless, and caused my phone to have some lag compared to now without it.

    welcome aboard, and are you available?

    Welcome Trish, Droid Owner, and fellow member of the "I'm-Not-Available-Club" ..

    Sorry to hear about your problems. However, this forum is great, and I have learned a lot about the ins and outs of this phone.

    However, on the Advanced Task Killer issue. I have never had a problem with in... in fact my Droid has worked great out of the box.

    I knew that would somehow come out like an AA introduction. Luckily I am not an alcoholic (yet )

    The whole "I'm not available" deal was because I moderate another forum (read: online sausage fest) where that question gets asked on the daily and I figured I would just get that out of the way.

    I guess the ATK issues are hit or miss... this new phone is pleasing me so far. It's much faster than the last one, and the sensors seem to be working with no problems. Key words: so far. I'm hoping the supposedly soon OTA update will help... whenever that comes

    Welcome Trish....great to have you here.

    Just an FYI, I'm assuming you have long hair? If yes. the problem you were experiencing with the proximity sensor not shutting the screen down is caused by long hair : )

    So if by chance you start experiencing that same issue. It's your hair.

    Yes I know, strange.... So don't shoot the messenger and all that : )

    See you around the forums.

    edit: My girlfriend is from Sugarland.
