    Sounds like a hardware problem. Doesn't verizon have a 30 day return policy. they will replace out for you if they can see the same thing happening.

    Don't bring your phone back if it is rooted though.

    Rooting opens your phone up in a certain way so you can tweak it more than you can do with stock. When a droid is rooted you can remove bloatware, overclock or speed up processor, change the entire look of interface, and more! There are risks in doing this with droid x and verizon will void your contract if they find out. My d1 is rooted and I love it's but if you do it be aware of the risks. Its essentially hacking your phone and there are certain methods to root.

Trying to remember what day I activated the phone. Hasn't been much over a week. Real disappointed I'm already having problems. Sent from Yahoo! Mail on An

    These phones don't usually have problems. I think you just got a bad one.
