    I am having same issue

    I posted earlier today as well. I am having the same problem. My wife updated my phone for me and she didn't know it needed to be unrooted first. I am having all kinds of problems. My battery is only lasting about and hour. My driod 2 seems to be running hotter than I have ever felt it. Sometimes it wont even answer or call out. It doesnt seem to even want to charge.
    I am hoping a genius on here can help. Please keep me posted if you have any success. Help!

    Sounds like sbf will be the fix. If you have never done that there are tons of threads explaining how to do it

    I had to do a factory reset

    Sorry for all your problems. I had the same issues, finally I just had to do the factory reset. If you do make sure you back up your photos and contacts. Im hesitate to do the d3 root.....we'll see!
