    There are free apps in the market, no need to purchase.

    But on another note there is no need to use antivirus apps. They slow your phone down and there really isn't a virus for android phones.

    I head of viruses on the android phone. There is free virus scanner to try. Just search the market place for virus scanning apps.

    Restarts and shuts down whenever it wants, turns wifi on. I even took all of the apps off and did a reset. When trying to setup I couldn't even do that. Had to call vzw to setup manually. On my first replacement and second one on the way. I had more issues before I got this replacement.

    I was told by tier 2 tech that GB should fix some if the bugs I am just not convinced it will.

    A couple of my friends have the Droid X and have mentioned it restarts on itself.

    I had 2 of them do a hard reset and they said it still happens, but this was probably last summer so I don't know, I heard the last update was supposed to make it more stable.

    Guess you gotta put up with it til Gingerbread drops.
