    I've had my droid x for a few months now, and this is the first time this has happend to me. My droid x can send text messages, but won't receive them. It also is unable to make phone calls nor receive them.

    thank you

    Did you recently install any apps? What kind of error are you getting when you try to call?

    I've only downloaded well known apps, and the phone call just never connects and says error connecting and then asks if i would like to retry.

    Okay. What kind of signal strength do you have right now? Have you updated your PRL recently? Are you rooted? Have you rebooted since this issue started?

    My signal is great, full bars. I'm not sure what PRL is, i'm not rooted, and i've tried rebooting and tried doing a battery pull.

    Go to settings > applications > manage applications and find Fancy Widgets in the list. Click it and there should be an uninstall button available.

    The PRL is related to roaming capabilities and your phone knowing which towers are available to connect to. To update them, dial *228, option 2. However, if your phone won't dial out, that may not work.

    At this point I'd suggest doing a factory reset, and if that doesn't work taking it into Verizon and asking them to fix/replace it.

    With no signal you can't download an app to back your stuff up, though, like texts and stuff. Your contacts should be synced with Google if you didn't turn that off, though.

    I work with cell phone providers. This is an issue for VZW to fix or replace.
