    Time and date freeze when plugged in to charge.

    The stock time and date widget freezes when I plug the charger in. Anyone else have this issue or a way to fix it? I deleted and re-launched the widget and it fixed it but only until I plugged the charger in again. Help!

    I dont have an issue with the date widget. Wish i could help ya. So far the only issues i have with it were none of my apps or settings transferred over automatically when i switched the device. Had an X before. Wish i could find a way to transfer my mycountry game over. Had to start that all over again. Anyone know how to import that data over from an X to the Bionic?

    Did a video/movie test yesterday and was very unpleased with the performance. The performance on the droid X and charge were 10 times better. The movies have a slight delay with voice sync. Feels like im watching a movie in chinese!

    How's music playback? After I learned how make it happen on my X2 I'm becoming obsessed about the issue.
    Damn forum I was happy until someone had to show a fault with my phone, grumble, grumble,,,

    oh yeah and the 1 G of ram hows that? Sounds like dual-core is still not 100% ready for prime time?

    Update on Video performance.

    Went to 2 different Verizon stores. First one didn't know what to do with the situation. Not very helpful people. The service rep pretty much blew me off and didn't want to help. So i grabbed the phones and told them i will got to a store where they try to help.

    Went to the next store. After explaining and showing the people there the difference in how the video works with the same exact file on both the Droid X and the new Bionic, they were stumped. They were stumped to find that the old technology in an original X played video and the sound was synced than with the new Bionic technology. After speaking to 4 reps and showing them all the issue, we decided to test a few things.

    Took the sim card out of the X and placed it in the Bionic. Same results. Then took the sim card out and placed it in a X2. Big difference. Played better and than the Bionic, and it was almost a match the the X1. A perfect video.

    Conclusion from the Reps were that the phones hardware is playing the movie faster than the sound can sync to it. So they weren't sure how to fix this but said there's a program out there that can fix the problem. However the rep that knows it was not there today. He's do in tomorrow. The final plan is to have him see about fixing it. SO i will be there tomorrow after work to find the fix.

    Apparently the manager of this store, which i have dealt with many times, had the same issue going from the Incredible2 to the revolution. And this was a fix. So we will wait to see. The store manager here has been there a long time and has helped me Numerous times. Pretty knowledgeable on most questions asked.

    Will update tomorrow when i get home. If anyone else has the time to test this out, please do so. If you have any solutions or suggestions, please by all means let us all know.

    Have a great day.

    yeah, I get that too. Also not a fan. Overall very satisfied with my Bionic. Screen looks great to me, and the battery life is really awesome. My (half price) extended battery is on it's way too! :)
