My solution to this problem on my old D1 was to run Vlingo. Free and functional.
Actually, this was the issue that delayed my getting a Droid...
Just got a dinc2 and want to root, ROM, and hotrod it.
Any tips on how to setup the new 16GB card I got for it?
My OG Droid is pretty finicky...
Get rooted and onto a custom ROM.
If you want to stick with Froyo get CM6.
OG Droid can handle a 1GHz overclock pretty well.
Read the stickies...
I can't speak to your specific problems, but I've been on a different setup than you with no problems.
Try the last winner00 build. It's CM...
GPS/maps will work but I doubt that navigation will.
Oh, I should say "will work on wifi"
No service, no data.
Good luck with your new life!
Thanks for all your efforts on the Droid. You've made some excellent tools for everyone and I hope you will...
Ah- Tasker will do this. The market entry mentions 'states' and 'power'....

Ok- thanks for the tip!
Anything wrong with TiBU's backups of text and call logs and data?
I have a couple extra batteries for my Droid and I don't usually attempt any ROM flashing without a full battery in the phone, but as you said,...
Thanks- I'm looking into RZRecovery now...
I don't see PE on ROM Manager. That's kind of a shame.
Sure would make it easy for me to try out.
I've read through the first 1/3 of this thread...
Did you ever try a custom ROM?
$20 for a Droid is a steal! Sell it to me when you get the D3! lol
Plug in the USB cord (you expect the pop up on the phone, but don't get it)
My USB wouldn't hook up directly after a flash to 7.0.2, either.
I found I had to uncheck USB Debugging and then it immediately hooked up.
Works fine now!
Thank you! Very helpful info!
I'd like to add that (at least on my setup) USB won't mount the SD card to the PC if 'USB Debugging' is checked in...
