    I have had my Droid incredible a little over a month now and the last two weeks or so its been acting up like crazy.

    Problem #1
    my stock internet browser wouldnt load any webpages over 3g or wifi.
    neither worked and it would just sit there and do nothing forever. I downloaded a different browser which still didnt work, rebooted phone repeatedly. only thing that worked was pulling the battery.
    that was two weeks ago, has been not loading pages on and off since but if I close browser a couple times then they start to work again for a couple minutes.
    Problem #2
    Similar to problem #1 I can be right in the middle of watching a video on youtube or other site and it will just stop playing. I cant reload, go back or home. none of the buttons will work except the off button. I go back and try video again a couple times with cyling power button before it starts to work and half the time it will only play the first 30 sec or so of any video.
    Problem #3
    My camera acts up randomly
    once in a while I'll try and take a picture and it will just close the second I hit ok (take picture button) happens in video mode too
    it will happen a couple times in a row and usually turning phone completely off is only way to get it working normally again.
    Problem #4
    many times when i click a website where you can type something the keyboard just wont pop up. i can tap all day long and nothing. it will allow me to paste or move screen around but wont allow me to type.
    I think this is a browser problem but I dont know.
    I tried dolphin browser but I cant stand it. I wish firefox was available.
    Problem #5
    when I try clicking an internet link it will turn green and act like its going to open but does nothing. I can do it many times with only way to get it to work is reload the page or hold it and hit open open in new window.
    Problem #6
    sometimes when i resize a website and I tap a link it turns green next to or below the link instead of where I tapped. sometimes opening the wrong link or not working at all.
    Problem #7
    Craigslist has a huge white box that shows accross the page and blocks 1/4 of the screen. only way to see whats behind it is to resize screen. I cant type in the box or move it. no idea why its even there.
    Problem #8
    Quadhunter.com website has a large banner ad at the bottom of the site that covers 1/4 of the screen on my phone. If I search for atv's i can scroll through the list but no matter what cant see the bottom 5 or so atv's because they are blocked by the banner. I dont know what to do about this other than look on my home computer instead.

    If anybody has any ideas on what is causing these problems or what I can do about them please chime in.

    thanks much,
    Ryan

    Well, I still have the phone, but no fix for any of those problems. I just restart the phone a lot and start over with whatever I was trying to do. This phone has nice features but sure is a PITA. I'll probably deal with it till my contracts up, maybe they'll have the bugs fixed on this Android software by then.

    Have you thought about taking it in and exchanging it?

    ok for now

    For me a hard reboot (removing the battery) worked. But if this happens too often, it will be a big pain.
