    Do you have insurance? return it and get the droid 2. My brothers droid 1 broke and they gave him a droid 2 in return.

    My D2 only really gets hot when navigating in the windshield cradle and plugged into the charger. Of course I'm not sure how much is due to the sun shining on it.

    same here. it's not just the sun, either. Same thing happens at night. Turning on the GPS radio and having it continously downloading navigation/mapping data via G3 network really heats it up, to the point where the battery can stop charging, and it acts all weird if you cycle the power while the droid2 is in the car dock. Only fix is to pull the battery for a while, even a shft-alt-del won't workshop.

    Anyother problems you've noticed? I guess general over heating and rebooting were the biggest concerns, has anyone had issues with it freezing and rebooting/having to reboot?

    only time ive noticed it being hot is tethering which is normal.

    i havent had the phone randomly reboot on me yet and ive had it for about 2 weeks now. It froze one time and i had to do a battery pull but it was when i was playing that new game Angry Birds Beta and someone called me. Phone wouldn't let me answer the call and after it stopped ringing the phone just froze but i believe that to be a problem of the game cause its in beta and ive never had that happen any other time

    Mine heated up last night when I was playing Home Run Battle 3D. It actually felt like it was overclocking. But I didn't even look at the CPU temperature because I know that these things can get hot when in use and they can take quite a bit of heat.

    I switched over to the Droid 2 from the Droid. I never had any heat issues with my D1 except when I used it heavily. With the D2 however, it heats up real fast and quite often, even when I'm not using it. I usually keep the phone in my pocket and I'll feel it heat up randomly to the point where I have to take it out and let it sit on the desk to cool off because it's too hot.

    Not sure why it does that. It'll also heat up at various points of the day even when it's just sitting on my desk.

    I've noticed mine gets hot too, but so did my Droid... I guess hot is a relative term... To me hot is whenever i start feeling heat coming from the phone (35-40 C), downright hot is when its pumping out 40+ temps, which it has done before as well, btu with the D2 i haven't noticed it go over 43... According to my Battery Temp that is...

    I haven't looked at the battery temp thing but once it starts to feel like taking a plate out of the microwave and putting it on my leg while I'm working then it's pretty noticeable, lol.
