    I have had my Droid for 3 weeks now and I have to it replaced already, unfortunately they are still on backorder until August 30th. UGH!!! So I have to constantly reboot, the battery keeps over heating or not charging, the screen constantly freezes, when I try to text it kicks me back to the home screen and none of the caller ids show up, then if I use Swype it stops swyping before I get to the 2nd letter. Not to mention the low volume when I play music on the phone. And for contacts that I have no photo of, the green android doesn't appear. Also after I take the battery out over the last few days, it will take as long as the Blackberry Strorm 1 and 2 to reboot. Needless to say, my Droid experience isn't very happy at this point.

    I had a storm1 before I got my droid x. It froze ALL THE TIME! My droid x is alot better than the bb but it is starting to freeze up to. I run the task killer and all that so I don't know what else to do. Overall, still a great phone though.

    lots of great information, esp. with the task killing and such. didnt realize how robust the OS's resource manager was. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside :heart::heart::heart:

    Antivirus

    Oddly enough, I am still having issues with the phone, so I took some apps off wit no improvement. Then something said to take the program Antivirus off and then I downloaded the anitvirus called Lookout and although the other issues are still there I am able to get a full charge on the phone now. It wouldn't hold a charge or charge up at times. So that is a plus, now as far as the freezing up and getting kicked out of my text messages that is a whole other issue. :greendroid:

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Droid X, I may have just gotten that one bad seed! I hope.....
