    I lost all connection (voice and data) overnight. I download several audio files last night and all seemed fine until this morning. I cannot even get to the manage wireless connections page---I get a forced close error...HELP!

    Not to chime in here, but I used the desktop cradle/alarm feature last night, then used the GPS dashboard mount this morning and later in the morning (10am) I have no connectivity. Droid shows "No Service" and WiFi is not working with available AP at work. I'm seeing real long delay while using the WiFi option in the "Wireless & Network Settings" settings menu then Droid gives and reboots. If I turn on "Airplane mode" and turn off WiFi, Droid reboots. After reboot, I turn off Airplane mode and turn WiFi on, I get 3G service but WiFi radio seems to not be transmitting. I'll have to force close the WiFi Settings.

    Did you restart the phone? Did you do a battery pull? Did you uninstall any recently downloaded apps?

    OK - problem solved! I did a SOFT RESET (on slide-out keyboard do: Left Shift + ALT + DEL) -- just like a PC three-fingered salute. Droid came back up with 3G & WiFi working.

    ok, so in desperation, I went through with a factory reset after backing up the SD Card onto my comp. How do I get that data back onto the phone?
