    dont want to start a new thread on this, but is anyone experiencing worse 3g speeds? My OG Droid streamed and had better reception than my x2. I'm hoping the answer is that the network has been slow altogether recently. My best example is Amazon Cloud. Never had a problem with my og droid, now i get network error constantly.

    I get better reception on my X than my X2. In general, about a bar better where ever I am. Also, since making the changes with V6 Supercharger, I haven't had a single redraw on LP. That definitely made all the difference in the world. I used setting 6 (Balanced 2).

    Thank you so much for this post, juhde. I was having problems with freezing and/or locking. After freezing most of these apps the phone is much better. I can only hope this phone will mature as time goes on and I'll be even more happy with it down the road.

    The Media Volume buttons work just fine on mine with the screen locked. It has to be on the lock screen though, not off like my Eris could.


    This phone is really pushing me. I was using an Incredible 2 and loved it, almost 0 problems from Day 1 and lightning fast. I was psyched for the Droid X2 so used my 14 day return to get one of those instead since I game a lot and loved the dual core.

    The lag still comes in spurts though. It'll show it's ugly face then disappear for awhile. I KNOW it's not the phone's fault. The gingerbreak hack and freezing some bloat helped tremendously, but I still feel like the software is holding the phone back.

    They better get this under control. Or else I'll never even consider buying Motorola again.

    I hope Motorola gets some software fixes out for the DX2 soon. It seems to be the only thing hampering the device. I've experienced lag when calls come in and on the lock screen. Some apps like Backbreaker Football and Chuzzle do not run right. I've gotten random reboots in the market, gallery and the camera, although a factory reset has helped some with that. I've also been running ADW EX to get rid of MotoBlur and that has helped a lot. It runs smooth as silk.

    I'm hesitant to root it as I may be returning it, but for what I don't know. There are no other phones out right now that appeal to me. Is Gingerbreak reversible on the X2?

    Gingerbread will fix MANY bugs, just be patient.

    Gingerbreak has a un root option.

    I used the camera extensively today at the race track. I had 3 phone reboots in 4 hours, always just after stopping recording a video. Those 3 videos all ended up as duds in the gallery, and if I try to play any of those 3 the phone locks and then reboots. They definitely have some bugs to work out. I'm just worried the bugs will come in the form of Froyo updates instead of GB.

    I used mine Saturday for the Avila Beach Blues Festival...ok well I TRIEDto use mine. The HD video recording was really glitchy and the phone rebooted 3 times in a matter of a couple of hours. The 1 video out of the 3 that actually recorded is extremely glitchy and freezes on playback. The phone is all stock and I've had it for a little over a week now. I love the screen and the features and I REALLY WANT IT TO WORK!

    This is so frustrating. I switched to an Incredible 2 last week, upgrading from my Eris. Loved the DINC2, was a great, great phone. However, I'm a heavy user, so I thought the Tegra 2 would be better, I liked the screen and the HDMI, and it was the same price so I used my 14 day return to get the DX2.

    So far...I'm disappointed. It's not all bad. When it is working I love it way more than the DINC2, however this lag is really pissing me off. The DINC2 was flawless every screen, instant loading, and music player was great. On my DX2 there's occasional lag when swiping through the screens and a few seconds before it unlocks, music player is glitchy, and the camera is mediocre at best.

    I can just tell it's simply not using the dual core. Meaning it's 100% the softwares fault. I'm mostly blaming Froyo, and am pretty sure Gingerbread will fix most, if not all, of these issues. I did root it with Gingerbreak, definitely helped a bit, but it's still not quite there. Theres no way my DINC2 can outperform my DX2 so they better fix this software BS quick.

    Stock GB has no real speed increase whatsoever, so don't get your hopes up.
    My Droid X lagged a lot at first, but if you decide to root and ROM, it makes it very fast.

    For those with lag issues, try downloading Script Manager from the Market and then download the script V6 Supercharger. Choose option 7 in that, let it do its thing, then reboot and run it again and choose option 7 each time you boot up. The stock memory management settings are pretty poor and this seems to fix a lot of the problems, especially if you use LauncherPro.

    For the people I saw having problems with the calendar and phonebook, I was having those problems too and fixed them by unfreezing "email engine 2.2.2" for the calendar and "corporate sync authenticator" and "yahoo mail authenticator" for the phonebook problems. There may be some other problems I haven't encountered yet with freezing the list in this thread, but I haven't found them yet.

    SD Card and restoring data?

    If anyone would please help! Went from Droid X to Droid X2 and placed my 16 gig card with the backed-up data. The card is recognized and I can see the back-up data, but no application will restore the data indicating the no recognized files are on the card. No back-up program was used. I can see some posts that indicate to move the data to another source and reformat. I'll do this if no one has a better idea. Other than this problem, I love the DX2

    You can't restore an X backup to and X2. Backups are meant for same device model only. You need to copy your docs/pics/whatever to SD, then just pop the memory card over to the new phone and reinstall all the apps.
