    Rebooting? No, rebooting is just the process of turning your phone off and on. Think of turning a computer off and on. Nothing will be lost.

    Just like a PC, you'll want to reboot every now & again. Keeps cache clean & phone running smoothly.

    I have the same issue; I also can't receive calls. I have tried rebooting several times and no luck. I'm running the Pete's rooted 2.1 mod.

    So my buddie went to the Verizon store today finally and all they did was a factory reset. Now his phone works again, he had to redownload all his apps but it works now. So for all out there try a factory reset and that should be the trick to fix it.

    WOW... that's not even an option for me right now. I'm out of the country and to do that would make my Droid a nice little night light. would be the second time in a month that I would have to "factor reset" my phone. Thank you for the update.
