1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    The Droid X is a great piece of electronics, but if I can't use it reliably as a phone, what's the point?

    I've had the X for a few months, and don't use it very often for the phone feature - maybe once or twice a day. Several times when I tried to place a call, it seemd to go through. The screen showed the clock ticking off contact time. I know there is going to be a problem when I notice that I do not hear the phone ringing. The problem is, there is no communication.

    The other person's phone rings, but neither one of us hears anything. I can usually solve the problem by shutting off the X and restarting, but that wastes time. Today, when I restarted, I still could not communicate. I could hear the other person, but he could not hear me. No controls on the phone worked - except for the shut-down switch. When I restarted it a couple of hours later, it worked fine.

    I've seen this mentioned here before, and I was hoping the lastest update (last night) would solve the problem. I guess not.


    When my current contract expires I might look at something other than Motorola.

    sounds like a radio issue, I'd call vzw tech support and see if you can get that fixed. if not, they could send you a refurb. that shouldn't happen

    Definitely a radio-tower error.

    There was a report here about two towers fighting for your service. This could be your problem.

    I actually had the same problem 2 days ago.

    I made a call and I saw the timer going but no sound of a dial tone or anything.

    I just restarted my phone and it worked fine.

    I thought it was the ROM I installed.
