    I've had a Droid X since March of this year. I got one replacement a few months ago and until about 2 weeks ago I had no issues with my second phone. Recently, I was prompted for a system update, I think to update to System 4.5.605 but I am not 100% sure. While it was updating I noticed an error message about not enough disk space, but it still seemed to update. Randomly the phone started to reset, like once or twice a day, that I noticed atleast I took it back to Verizon and they issued me a new phone and I had the same issue, so again I got another phone and I have the same issue.

    Apps I have installed:
    CardioTrainer
    Facebook
    UltraChron Light (Stop watch program)
    Words with Friends

    (on an earlier phone I also had Snowboard, Healthy Recipes and Weather Channel installed)

    I am a pretty basic phone user, I send a few txts a day, a few calls, go on Facebook, take some pictures, listen to music and use CardioTrainer for runs...you get the idea.

    The phone resets at random times, sometimes when I am listening to music and other times I will look at the phone and notice the start up animation. Any suggestions? It doesn't seem trying a 4th phone would help.

    Thanks

    Mine does that, but usually I see some app freeze first so there is usually one or two apps that seem to cause mine to do this

    Thanks...The memory manager didn't seem to help, so I cleared the partition and I will see if it works.

    I am having some problems since the latest update, so I decided it's time to do a factory reset. I followed the link leftspin gave, and I could not get into recovery mode. My X is totally stock. I get to the exclamation point just fine. When I press the search button, nothing happens.

    Any suggestions? FYI, my X is totally stock.

    I just got off the phone with VZW, and they said that this update can sometimes prevent the phone from getting into recovery. I did the factory reset from the privacy menu in the main settings. FYI, in case somebody encounters this too...

    I called Verizon (as opposed to go to the local store) and they say they are going to send me an X2...Hopefully that does it.
