    if you dont try a battery pull you wont know if it helps or not.
    it only takes 2 mins tops and it just might sort out these minor issues you're describing.

    Confused...

    How does a battery pull fix issues with the phone if it's problem is with apps or phone functionallity??? I thought battery pulls were for boot loops and lockups/freezes, unresponsiveness. Would a reboot not fix some issues? Or do you shutdown, pull the battery, put the battery back in and reboot? A data factory reset shouldn't help at this point should it? I don't know, maybe it could this early in the game? I wonder if it's okay that I couldn't wait for this phone and got an LG Revolution.

    The reason they suggest battery pulls is because your device never really "turns off." There is always a residual charge in the phone. That's why you remove the battery and hit the power button to release the residual charge, this completely turns the phone off and can be beneficial in resolving a multitude of problems.

    I have seen a few mention problems but I can honestly say that I have not had a single glitch out issue with my Bionic yet. Works perfect and I love it!

    Shouldn't have to? Because we are to expect electronics and machinery to never ever have a glitch and be 100% perfect all the time? That is just not being realistic. Glitches will happen, getting upset and complaining solves nothing.

    I'm not complaining or upset. I'm just saying I like a stable system, don't you? I love android, but I don't see iPhone users having nearly as many of these kinds of issues.

    Let's try and be a little civil guys, not everyone knows everything about everything. Name calling isn't going to solve anything.

    Seeing as to how that is the first thing that tech support has you do for any problem it was an excellent response.

    The only thing I found so far as a glitch is when I went out of a Verizon coverage area into ATT (I Believe).....I had already clicked on the allow data while roaming button and it still wouldnt grab onto their 3G network so ....no data

    a Battery pull fixed this

    Actually, the iPhone is incredibly stable with amazing battery life. The problem is customization. You really can't do much with it. Most of the problems that you see are from people who don't know what they are doing. Jail-breaking the phone gives you some customization capability, but even then it is still not on par with Android, plus it puts a dent in the battery life for some reason.

    Now back on topic; do a battery pull. Yes it sounds strange, but you have to treat these new smartphones almost like a computer, specifically laptops. Sometimes you have to pull the battery on a laptop to ensure that it fully loses power and completely resets itself. I have even had to pull CMOS batteries out of the MB before to fix issues. It is always worth a try considering the small amount of time involved.

    Also, I remember from my old Droid X having an issue syncing the facebook pics. On the stock software, it would not sync the pics unless ALL your facebook contacts were synced, i.e. the facebook app did not give you the option of syncing ONLY your existing contacts. Once I was rooted running a custom ROM (Rubix), I had this option in the facebook app. Not sure if this could be the issue, but it is another thing you could check.

    Looking forward to seeing some good stuff from this phone, as I like messing with my phone, and the iPhone right now is not doing for me. I think the GF is going to get my iPhone and I will pick either this phone up or wait for the Droid Prime later this year.

    Try a battery pull. Then if that doesnt work, simply do a factory reset. The problems that you have mentioned are all software related, it should be fixable with one of these procedures.
