    Im sure there are quite a few posts on this, but its finally starting to annoy me. I loved my droid before the latest update, but now my battery lasts half a day, everything, even texting is slow. The phone just totally seems to be bogged down post update, do they have a new one coming out soon?

    Sinistersix if you haven't installed any new apps then perform a factory reset. It should clear up your issue(s)

    If you have installed new apps since the update you should uninstall them one by one until you see the issue(s) subside.

    Yeah it will wipe all apps off the phone but the new froyo market will do an auto download when you sign back in to Google after the wipe. So it should restore all downloaded apps.

    As Fox said above yest it will wipe everything clean. When you sign back in everything will download again. Apps /contacts will restore

    Factory Resets are great if you've troubleshooted to no avail.

    Good luck and let us know if it solved your issue.

    This is true, I recently got a replacement Droid 1 with 2.2 already installed on it, my old phone was a Droid 1 that had two updates from 2.1 to 2.2 to the newer 2.2 and it was bogged down and slow. Even after Google apps installed all my previous apps, it's still fast and awesome.

    I don't have a D2, but here is what I found:

    1. Turn the Droid 2 off. If it’s frozen and you cannot turn it off, pull and replace the battery.
    2. Open the keyboard and press the X key while pressing and holding Power. The device will power on. Keep holding the buttons downuntil a yellow triangle appears.
    3. Press the Search key on the keyboard (magnifying glass).
    4. Use the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons on the side of the phone to select the Wipe data factory reset option. Use the Camera key to confirm it.
    5. Tap wipe data/factory reset then tap OK.
    6. Highlight reboot system now is highlighted then tap OK.
