    I am having a problem with my Droid, when I try to answer a call it shuts itself off and reboots. Does anyone have any ideas? It is straight stock not hacked...thanks

    Sounds like you need to do a factory reset. With a rooted phone I'd say clear your caches and see if it improves before flashing a new dialer. Have you tried a dialer from the market?

    ^^^ agreed. I have been able to fix some little quirks with a factory data reset.

    In fact, when I first got my droid on Nov 9, 2009 I found that the GPS wasn't quite working for maps and Nav. A Factory data reset fixed me right up. And now a days with Froyo, it's alot less painful.

    good luck
