    This is happening to me also in music. If i put the display to sleep also it would freeze and pause the music. Also when i connect to media center dock thing it would make the sound as if i am turning off the display, but it would make that sound about 5 times rapidly. I have not had the issue with the browser. Also i had rooted and it was very laggy so i unrooted it, but it stills lags only in with music. The music issue would only occur when playing music. if not then works fine.

    This is also an occurring issue with my D2, haven't seen a fix or anything to fix it yet.

    I find that when I open up my contacts, my D2 freezes. Takes forever to autocomplete an address in gmail. Navigating from the dialer, to the contacts screen makes it freeze. Beginning to get annoyed with my baby.

    sorry that I can't offer an answer, just another verification that its not only you! My default music player will freeze frequently. The phone itself will either freeze entirely, go so slowly that a reset is necessary, or it will just reboot onits own. It happens a couple times a day (perhaps a bit more). I ike my D2 for the most part, but its a lot more unstable then the D1 was. likely due to motorola mucking around add their blur to it. meh.

    My phone is freezing roughly ten times an hour now. This is before rooting, after rooting, stock and epic.

    How'd they pull this one off?

    FYI, I did see some improved performance after I changed from a live wallpaper to static. #smh

    You're probably right about static wall paper speeding things up. Especially if the wallpaper coding is wonky But if it worked well on the D1 with less RAM and less processing power, there is no reason the D2 shouldn't be able to handle it!

    I thought it was only me and the other guy, but now i realized there is a good amount of people with freezing problem on the D2. I have not found a fix either.Also i dont want to give it back to verizon because all they would do it either say that is not in the warranty or they will give me a pre-owned with the same issue.
    I rooted it thinking it will go faster but it didnt i even overclocked it,and it will still freeze so i unrooted because the rooting made the phone alot slower.

    I found a fix for it, but it lies within a custom ROM..

    Running Super Clean BS VA. No freezes, D2 runs smooth ALL the time, even stays at a cool temp. And its the release of the R2D2 software. Best ROM out for the D2 IMO!

    Droid 2 keeps freezing

    Hey guys,
    I just bought my phone on Nov 15 , last monday and It was working fine until yesterday when it started going crazy freezing on me. I had to remove the battery to reboot it and when I did it just froze again sooo basically I have the same issue and I read about the ROM suggested but I dont want to void the warranty of the phone or have it harmed in any way and would like to know of any solutions that might work or any feedback from ppl who used the rom to fix this "FREEZINg" problem...
    Thanx

    I was having major freezing issues. I think I read where advanced task killer wasn't necessary for a D2, so I never installed. Long story short: took my phone to the dealer, he suggested ATK. I installed. No more freezing.

    I've been having the same problem. Factory reset didn't help either; I have to reboot my phone about 5 times per day because of freezing issues. Has anyone explored the possibility of this being a problem related to the keyboard. The one thing I have in common between all freezes is that it always happens when the keyboard slides out. It may not be much, and barely noticeable, but if it slides out in my pocket a little bit I usually have to reboot my phone.

    Likely a memory management issue. Try running this script via terminal. Should help to alleviate some issues.
