    I have had my Droid2 for three months. I can access my company website and get work done without firing up the laptop. That is great.

    Part of my problem is that my phone/talk service area has shrunk by about 20%.

    Also, the bluetooth function is unreliable. After about five minutes (even in a high signal area) the blue tooth disconnects and will not re-connect or let me talk without bluetooth without powering down and powering back up.

    I have the same bluetooth set up as I had with my BlackBerry and it worked perfect.

    I am going to buy a 2012 Jeep with UConnect. The Jeep website gives the Droid a one out of three star rating for working with UConnect.

    WTF gives with this "smart" phone?

    I would try a factory reset. That fixes a lot of probs.

    Turn the phone off. Hold the power and X button until you see an Android. Then press the search button. A menu will pop up and you will want to select factory data reset. Also wipe cache. Then reboot

    You will lose all of your data on the phone, but not on the SD Card.
