    I had a Blackberry Pearl before the Droid and it was routine for me to remove the battery 2-3 times per day.

    After owning the droid for 2 weeks now, I've only had to remove the battery 4 times. The reasons for removing:

    - Droid was locked in sleep mode. No matter how many times I pressed the unlock key, it wouldn't show me the unlock screen. I tried holding the unlock button to try and turn the phone off, but I would just feel a little buzz, as if the Phone Options dialog box would pop up but I couldn't see it.
    - The home screen was locked up. I remember browsing the market and I tried going to the home screen, but it was blank. I would've gone to the task killer but I couldn't see it.
    - Bluetooth kept failing to pair with my computer. I turned the phone on and off several times, but no luck. Battery reset resolved it.
    - I wasn't able to make a phone call. No matter how many times I would press the little phone icon next to my contacts, it wouldn't make the phone call. Battery reset resolved it.

    Has anyone else had these problems? Are my numbers higher/lower than yours?

    I had to once--but that was after I was letting all the juice run out (conditioning) and it wouldn't come back to life until I physically removed the battery. Its been running like a champ since. My previous phone I had to do it a couple times a week (Samsung i-760 running WinMobile).

    I have pulled the battery twice, the first time was to check my build date, and the second was part of my procedure while testing the car-home/dockrunner bug to see if the media dock causes the same behavior, it does.

    None since I purchased it on the 9th. It's been pretty stable for me. I did have to turn it on and off to get my ringer back this morning, bu I'm not sure if that was the phone or something that I did to cause the sound to go away. Very happy with the Droid so far.

    Once. I tried to play a MP4 video file encoded for something else... either my old Treo or my GPS device (Pioneer AVIC-F500BT), not sure.

    The video locked up the whole DROID. I don't imagine Linux itself was locked up, but more likely, for whatever reason, the I/O system was locked. So I couldn't kill the player, and had to force reboot.

    My previous smart phone was a Palm Treo. You had to open the battery compartment to get to the reset button, but it had one. It needed one... I found PalmOS locking up several times a day, on average.

    "And we liked it"...

    Iv not had to pull the battery a single time and I bought it the morning of the 6th.
    I do soft reset it every couple a days but thats just a habit carried over from years of using HTC WM devices where you pretty much HAD to soft reset every day.

    I love this phone :):)

    1 time, but that was for a different reason. Nothing compared to my Blackberries.

    Never had to.

    My wife's Storm on the other hand... every other day or so, and she doesn't really even use it if she doesn't have to.

    I , too, got mine on the morning of the 6th and have not had to pull the battery once. I have done two power cycles to clear up two different app issues. I have been extremely impressed in this regard, as I came from a BlackBerry.
