    I have 2.2 and did a factory reset, which fixed a lot of the problems I had with lagging and all around buggy behaviour.
    But I now have this problem with the screen freezing every day, app being used doesn't seem to matter. It does it with Handcent, it does it with home screen panels and I can't go to the next panel.
    This freezing is fixed by turning screen off and on and within a few seconds, it blinks and unfreezes.

    Has anyone else encountered this? Is it caused by a certain app or is it yet another 2.2 bug?
    Thanks.

    I had a cert like new Droid2, which did the same, hard reset did not fix. Do you use lots of shortcuts? I did, which maybe phone did not like. Refused to give them up; so upgraded to Tbolt, which has its own problems.

    My first smartphone was 2.2, so no previous experience. Wonder if phones do not like shortcuts/widgets. I do: Wave, Smart shortcuts, Swipe pad. If they are so smart, should be able to handle them. Screen freezing was annoying, does it sometimes on Bolt. I turn screen off/on, or wait. Final straw was phone turning off, and missing calls. That is when I upgraded. Sorry not more encouraging.

    That's okay, it's helpful to know it happens to others, too.
