I purchased the droid 2 about a month ago. I have had continuing problems since. My first droid 2 was replaced for a brand new one in the store. So, I wont bother mentioning prior issues. This phone is doing a few weird things: 1. Notification bar indicates a new text message that isn't there. Meaning, I receive the sms message, read it (and reply) and the icon remains in the bar. I drag down to click the "unread" message and it disappears. (More recently, when trying to select a newly received sms from notification bar it will disappear from bar and not take me to the text.) 2. Intermittently, when using my phone, it will black out and power off and restart. At one point it blacked out, shut down and wouldn't restart at all. Had to pull battery. 3. Not connecting calls for numerous individuals. It will act as if it is connecting but is just dead air. I will have to hang up and redial numerous times before call is successful. Verizon representatives recommended I do a factory reset and not download anything for 3 days. I did the reset and all apps automatically installed. So, I removed all downloads which were not paid for. The problems are still occurring. If anyone has alternate suggestions or help, I would greatly appreciate it. I love the phone but hate the problems. Verizon seems to be clueless as how to help and tells me that I am the "first person to call with driod 2 problems." Psh.
