    I just picked up my Droid X this morning and I've had to pull the battery 3 times due to unresponsiveness. I tried waiting for a while in hopes that it would fix itself but it never did. Now my screen has gone black (no lights no nothing) and neither the power button nor the menu buttons do anything. I tried pulling the battery and it still won't turn on. I hope this thing isn't dead already.


    Update on the original post:

    I connected it to an AC charger and all is well with the world. I think I had just too much going on at one time (reinstalling all the apps I had on my old phone). Now that it's got a good charge it's fast and smooth again. I hope it stays that way. I'll keep you all updated. Thanks for the replies.

    Take it back. Droid does not crash like that and doesn't require battery pulls.

    Aside from the obvious question.. have you charged it FULLY using the AC adapter? The next question is did you install any applications? If so which ones? Any Launcher replacements?

    I've had to do two battery pulls since I got mine Tuesday. Once it was in my pocket so who knows what was going on in there. And the other time was after using 3G Hotspot.

    Mine has powered off by itself.

    And the apps in the drawer don't always auto arrange alphabetically, so that requires a power off/on to fix.

    I have not had any issues like this. I have installed apps, including LauncherPro and everything is running smoothly.

    YUP!! I am having the same issues. Picked up my Droid X this morning, and after a few hours of pounding on it , it rebooted. Then did it 3 more times. The third time it didnt come back up, and wont turn on, even after a battery pull. I am coming from a Blackberry Curve, which was a rock, so not sure what to expect or what todo...

    No issues to report on mine... although I just picked it up about 2 hour ago. Loaded apps no issues but did NOT try any launcher apps like launcher pro, ADW so that maybe the issue not too sure


    By the way this phone = awesomeness!!!

    I had similar issues, h owever it appears to have been a dead/low battery. I couldn't get it to turn on at all. After I charged, I had no issues.
