    Hello,
    I just joined this site and have hopes of learning a lot about my phone. I've had the Droid X for about 2 years now but am still learning. I am not familiar with these forums so I'll have to learn to navigate my way through this too.

    I joined mainly because I have been frustrated with my phone after I downloaded the first verizon update. It is now so S L O W. I have called Verizon and spent a couple hours and gotten to level 3 techs and no can help. I have cleared data from the keyboard and language and did a soft reset (they called it when you take the battery out while the phone is on). No Help. The icons light up blue when I touch them and a second later the screen goes black then the app appears. Never did that before the update. I started having trouble with the calendar syncing to my mac (through google delegates) I found a site About which solved he calendar problems.

    Another annoying problem I've having is in my contacts. I have groups set up. When I touch a group to pull up the one I touched does not pull up but instead the last one I used shows up. Does anyone out there have some advice for me?
    Thanks

    Welcome. You might want to try a new launcher as the blur launcher can be quite slow especially after updates as more bloat is added. Try using one of the free ones first like GO Launcher, Launcher Pro, or ADW
