    I keep losing the apps I install because the phone removes them somehow. The shortcuts stay on my screens and folders but when I click on them it says they are not installed and I have to re download them. But all the cache and login info returns. Anyone have any clue to this? I've rebooted several times and removed several apps to no avail.

    Go to Manage Applications and move them from the SD card to Phone.

    It's a known issue with the Bionic apps cannot be stored on the SD card.

    I had suspected that. Thank you for confirming my suspicions. Any advise on my screen shutting off randomly when I have my settings on 1 minute?

    There are many threads on this already. An update is scheduled for early November, 1 of 2 updates announced, that will fix this issue. For now, the temporary workaround is goto settings/applications/manage applications/media center, make sure nothing is checked, if it is, move the app to the phone for now.

    Yeah those workarounds are working for me for the moment. I heard about the fix coming in november and.read the whitelist but didn't see anything on the app issue but it.might not have been the complete list. I'm hopeful they will address the issues and it has not inconvenienced me that bad.

    It's on the list, but kind of misworded. It says shortcuts disappearing, I know for a fact that Motorola is aware of the issue.

    Mind if I ask you how that's a problem?

    Did you know that the Bionic has 4GB of internal storage that is reserved for apps? You will have an extremely difficult time filling that space any time soon! My 200+ apps are using considerably less than 1GB of storage space.

    Did you know that the 4GB of app storage space on the Bionic can ONLY be used for app storage? Is there a reason that you'd rather move apps to the SD card and leave that 4GB of space unused?

    I realize that we've all be trained to MOVE TO SD. That's an old habit, forced on us by old hardware - old phones with 500mb of app storage space, or less (I'm lookin' at you, OG DROID).

    Welcome to the 21st century! Time to unlearn old habits...

    Actually it has 8 gigs for apps and pics, etc. 8 for dedicated system software. 16 gigs total.

    Interesting. I thought it was: 4GB apps, 4GB system files, 8GB "media area" - for pics, music, files, etc.

    EDIT: This Motorola FAQ addresses this.

    Actually this is it...
    Memory / Processor


    • Dual core 1 GHz processor
    • 1 GB of LP DDR2 RAM
    • 16GB internal memory for emails, texts, and apps –actual formatted capacity will be less
    • 16GB microSD card pre installed
    • Virtually limitless contacts (only constraint is on–board memory (16GB)
    Shades was right!! :)
