1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Technically speaking, does powering the phone off, then powering it back on, actually perform a reboot, or is there more to it than that? Also, is pulling the battery for a few minutes a more "complete" way to do it? What are the advantages of doing a battery pull over just powering off/on? Stock non-rooted Droid BTW.

    Technically speaking off/on is a reboot. Pulling the battery out for at least 30 seconds allows the capacitors to discharge, that would be a proper battery pull. You don't need to do battery pulls unless you cannot shut down your Droid. That very rarely happens.

    Thanks hook. Follow up question if I may: Are there any issues/problems with not powereing the phone off for weeks, or even months at a time? Does it need a reboot every now and then just to keep its sanity?
