    Just folders, or apps as well? Sometimes I've had to click twice on a folder to get it open, but never reboot. Maybe you have a process that's sucking all resources? Maybe install TaskManager and have a look.

    Only folders. I'll try and kill everything next time to see if that helps. And it's only one folder at a time usually, others open just fine.

    Doesn't sound so much like a resources issue then. Unless this gets better or someone comes up with a solution for you, I'd probably talk to Verizon about it.

    It has happened to me once and never since..you probably have an application conflicting with it somehow. If nothing works just look forward to the update coming in January...but like I said I am sure there is some troubleshooting method to fix it up until then.

    I had that every day for a while. Battery pull always worked for me on a short-term basis. It just stopped one day.

    Same Here

    Happens almost daily. For anyone that has resolved the issue.. what apps did you install or uninstall when the problem resolved?

    I've been having the same problem and I do the delete folder and put a new one on. Yes very annoying.

    Actually I had an incident today where all my icons were gone on all three pages, did a restart and they all came back. Very odd.

    thank god for technical support at vzw though. I just called them and they seemed really sympathetic about it.

    what they suggested is to put your phone on safe mode for awhile (even if it is an inconvenience) so that you'll be able to distinguish if the problem is coming from the phone (in which case they will exchange it for you) or the apps that you have downloaded. If you have no problem during the safe mode, then it's obviously being caused by one of the apps.

    hope this helps.
    ps. i hate not being able to reproduce the problem when needed. ARGH! :]

    I have the same problem. I haven't figured out the cause yet. I used to turn it off and back on, but I found that after "x" amount of time, it will start working again on its own....

    Folder not opening

    It happens to me as well. It only happens with my folder that has the camera app in it after I use the camera app
    and it happens each and every time I use that app for some reason
    A reboot fixes the problem but I am searching for a solution as well
    I kill all things with the Task Manager and that does not seem to work either

    I occasionally have that problem and it happens on different folders. I either reset or just go to a different folder and do something else.

    i've had it happen with only one folder. i have four total and they will all open, but that one particular folder won't open. it's almost as if it thinks it's already open.

    i would try deleting the folder(s) that have problems and recreating them to see if that resolves the issue.
