    I have the Droid 2 and for no reason at all it keeps powering off and then back on. I am sooo frustrated. I can't even make it through a text or phone call without it shutting down. Please help!

    Is your phone rooted?
    Are you running a custom rom if you are rooted?
    Have you tried factory reset/clearing data?
    Also, is it a droid 2 or droid 2 global?

    I'm going to expose my ignorance, but what do you mean rooted? I just go this phone about a week ago. It's a replacement. I was hoping not to have to reset it since I just went through that process again. It's a droid 2.

    Rooted means that you have access to the system files in your phone. Its frowned upon by moto/verizon but it enables you to do so much more with your phone. Most of what i could tell you to try requires root. About the only thing that i know to do otherwise is to try a factory reset and if that doesnt work then take it to vzw.

    Droid 2 Shutting off

    Hello,

    My wife has the Droid 2, this turning itself off is a constant problem with the droid 2s. She has exchanged her phone 3 times at verizon wireless. They state they have never heard about this with the droid 2s, when it is all over their own forums on verizonwireless.com. This phone is completely garbage, at least now google will own motorola, because motorola makes #%^$& phones. I hope google can implement a better design and engineering.

    Frustrated User!

    Google now owns Motorola engineering, but they've openly stated the engineering team will remain its own entity. In other words, Google isn't changing anything.

    It used to happen daily before the update. I've only experienced it twice since then. I can only compare it to my old widows 95 desktop which would crash every hour on the hour. Thankfully the reboot time is but a fraction of the time. My issue is with the lock screen. I swipe to unlock and it reboots. Guess I'm used to this sort of thing. The overriding issue is Android software will run well on many hardware platforms but wont run perfectly on any of them. That's how Apple works so well. They make the hardware and the tailored software to match. I'm not a fanboy, just stating the differences. Love the versatility that Android provides. However, it's a trade-off.
