    I have a Droid 2 Global and all of a sudden Tuesday night I started experiencing force close issues. At first I thought the problem was only in Handscent the app I use for text messaging. It would let me type a few characters and then stall and eventually give me a force close or wait option. I tried powering off and then a battery pull but neither helped. Then I tried using the default text messaging program and the exact same thing happened. I found that if I sent a very short message like "test" it would help for a little while and let me send some messages. Then the problem would start all over again. Since then, the same thing has happened in my yahoo IM app, my checklist app, and when I try to email.

    I haven't downloaded anything new recently and I have no idea what the problem is. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Power down your phone, then hold x and power, that should take you into recovery, there should be a triangle with an exclamation point or something similar. Touch your search button and that should bring up several options. Use volume down to get to your cache partition menu, then camera button to select.

    Found this with a little help from google and xda

    1. Turn Droid 2 Off
    2. Press 'X' on the physical keyboard and then Press and HOLD Power button until the Exclamation Point/Android picture shows(after motorola symbol).
    3. To access menu options Press the "Search" button depicted by the Magnifying glass on the Keyboard and the menu items will show up.
    4. Browse options with the Volume Up and Volume Down keys and select option with the Camera button all on side.
    5. Select first option of "Reboot phone" or risk messing up your brand new Droid 2!

    So yup, you are right rck

    I can get into the recovery screen using the X and power button, but it gets stuck after that. Pressing the search button or anything else does nothing. It still stays on the droid robot and triangle image. Any suggestions?

    Yes, I did. When that didn't work I tried holding it for a few seconds. Absolutely no response either last night when I first tried or again tonight :-(

    Clearing the cache in general is a way to resolve your issue.

    Just curious,

    1. Did you just try to delete Handcent and then re-install? I have had customers that would use Handcent as their main text/sms tool but still had their main box accept texts/sms with the standard application that comes installed, therefor duplicating messages.

    2. Have you updated to Gingerbread 2.3?

    3. Is handcent backed up to your microcard?

    I recall the Droid X having similar issues where it would all of the sudden not cooperate and text properly. Predictive texting was turned off as a temp fix until a patch to fix came out....

    if all else fails - back up all your important stuff and factory restore the Droid 2 -

    Good luck!

    I'm not familiar with the D2G...those steps should've worked. Let me try to see if anyone else on the RS is more familiar with it and I'll have them check it out.
