    Another problem I have found is every once in a while the phone just reboots, is this normal, I have seen it do it at least 5 times in the month I have had it, who knows if it does it other times

    No it is not normal. This is called a bootloop. Contact the ROM Dev about it if you are running a Custom ROM.

    I mean like Bugless Beast or CyanogenMod. If you do not know what these are, and you are not rooted, then you need to contact a Verizon or Motorola representative and ask them how to fix the problem.

    No custom roms yet for the DX. As for the boot loop, are you completely stock/rooted/running the new bootstrap?

    One of the devs created a bootstrap which makes it one step closer to having custom roms, but currently gives access to the recovery. Since it sounds like you're bone stock, you don't need to worry about it.

    As for the reboots, is there any consistency on when it happens? (night of the full moon, every 3 weeks, after certain apps are shut down)

    Way it sounds he has a stock phone and probably should take it in to get looked at and or replaced.

    If it keeps happening I will do that, I took it in once to ask about it getting hot when it charges, but even that is inconsistant

    Another thing you can try is a full factory reset. It will come up like when you just opened the box. Could be a software issue.

    If saved on SD card then no. If only on phone, then yes.
