Hello Everyone, I have been having various problems with my 2.5 year old Droid 3. My goal is to nurse it along for another month or so until I can replace it. This droid 3 still has the old gingerbread which has been fine until about six months ago. I noticed that the overall responsiveness of the phone was getting slow, so I installed a cache cleaner. This helped for a while but the phone is getting unresponsive yet again. In the past week, the phone has shut itself off several times a day. I notice when I get a call on an office line that my phone went straight to voicemail, or I pick up the phone and see that it has turned off again. Today I had a child in the doctor's office and was trying to text my spouse when the texting function went completely flaky. A period.was.placed.after.every.word.entry. Annoying. This happened while using the touchscreen keypad. The slider keypad has too many dead keys to be useful any longer. Overall the phone has performed somewhat satisfactory in the past, the main things that bug me are the amount of bloatware and lack of updates. I only have a few apps that are not factory installed so I doubt the source of the problems is a wonky app. The keyboard has been a major disappointment with dead keys appearing just after the one year mark, and I do fewer than 200 short texts per month. What bugs me the most is that due to the slow speeds I am underutlizing this device, and this was not a cheap phone when it was new, ticked that Verizon/Motorola "retired" the device shortly after purchase with ZERO updates. I am preparing to switch carriers so for now I really need my number for another month. Any thoughts?? thanks!!
