    Bought the Droid 2 brand new on black friday of this year. I am already on my second warranty replacement (refurb) due to loose screen/screen wobble issues. Ive had this one for a couple days and the internet is noticeably slower than that of my new D2 and even the 1st refurb. Did i just get the shaft or is there something i can do to boost the speed? And why is it slower?

    Any task killers installed? Are you using back or home to exit applications?

    You should do the opposite of both those things. Ditch the task killer and use the back button to exit apps. This signifies to the system that you are done with it and it will handle it in its own time.

    Also you mitt try an alternate browser. I have good experience with dolphin hd and it has options to clear cache and history on exit.

    We'll tackle rooting later. Cookies are cleared in settings when your browser is open. Cache (unless you want to buy a $1 app) is done in Settings > Applications > Manage Applications and clicking on your apps.

    You can clear your browsers cache by hitting menu and then settings and scrolling down to clear cache.
