    For a little while now, I've been having install errors with certain apps. Mostly with games, but not all of them. It always says "Couldn't install on USB storage or SD card" There's plenty of room on both the phone and the card, however. Any ideas?

    hmm, ill try that. I tried unmounting and then mounting the sd card. I've been having other issues with my sd card, and usually that fixes it. but it didn't work.

    You're right, it worked for a little while. But then it stopped. And to top that, it got worse. I wouldn't even download apps. It would say there was a network error. I called tech. support, and they pretty much tried some special programming but none of it worked. Then they tried a factory reset (which made me mad since I know how to do that), and it didn't work. It wouldn't activate, then they said they'd give me a new phone. It started working again after the call. Then it stopped again, and it's been on and off. I just can't wait until the new phone comes.

    probably, i think i'm the only person who's had so many issues with this phone. this isn't the first time something weird like this has happened. but it's like the only phone w/ android from verizon with a physical keyboard. that's why i got it.

    They haven't made it for droid 2 global yet have they? And I can't root my phone b/c my parents have already told me they'd kill me if they found out I did that (b/c of warranty issues).
