    Lately, my phone has been restarting, freezing up, and my battery had been going okay, not as good as it normally does but its manageable. Can someone explain to me why o.o?
    If it has anything to do with killing your tasks, I do it!

    Before anyone wants too get wise and say something about its already been asked / answered I don't care. They're forums for people who need help or want to discuss something.
    Just sayin' ;]

    This is a family friendly forum. I've edited your post so that's it is acceptable. But I still don't like the way you ask for advice.

    We are here to help each other. If someone doesn't respond correctly report the post.

    You use a task killer? Yes, I would guess that's part of your issue. Remove it. If you still have a problem then do a factory data reset. If that doesn't fix it then you have a problem with your phone. You may want to take it back to Verizon.

    Motorola CEO has blamed Android apps/issues for 70% of Motorola phones returned.
    What does the Google CEO say? Does he use Google Navigation? :^)

    I've noticed that since I did the upgrade on my dx that it decides to reboot probably at least once per day. Sometimes when I'm using it or when a call is just coming in. Don't know why. It also seems to think it's roaming when I'm a couple miles from my house in a major metro area....

    Ouch...that means I lose everything though right? I know I don't lose what's on my sd card but I don't know what is or isn't on the card.

    Basically just unpaid apps. Your paid apps can be redownloaded. Your Google account backs up your contacts. Biggest PITA is re doing all your home screens. And it wont even affect your SD card.

    Huge thread on Moto's official forum about restarts. Gingerbread did not fix it.

    As far as losing apps and having to re-set up home screens there are very easy solutions to both of those problems. As far as apps go, well, first get rooted and download titanium backup and use it to back up all your apps. After a factory reset you can use titanium to reinstall all of your apps as if they were never gone.

    For the screen set ups root is not needed. I used ADW launcher which has a backup and restore feature built in. Once you have your screens set up the way you want them (and you can have up to 7 with ADW) go into the ADWsettings and then back up both settings and desktop configuration. After a factory wipe all you have to do is go back into ADWsettings and restore both options, the only thing you have to mess with is widgets but unless thats all you use it's not a pain at all.

    I sucked it up and reset without all of that. I'm close to back to normal.

    Phone reboots are a flaw in the Android platform itself, there is no getting away from it. It doesn't effect everyone, but it is one of the most common complaints of Android OS.

    At this point I just accept it, as they are clearly not going to fix it. It's been around for a year now, on multiple phones, with no fix in sight.

    Do any of you ever go through your sdcard and clear out old temp files? I have noticed that when I do that, my problems seem to go away.

    Yes actually I went to astro and cleared thumbnail cache and internal chache on SD card. And my phone seems a bit more zippy then before.
