    My issue is when i try to record/or capture video it force closes every time it worked fine when i first got my droid.

    Also i was attempting to record some video a couple of days ago again failed, but had to turn droid off and on to get going again my time and date had changed to Dec. 1969.

    Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

    It seems like you have some software issues. My advice, before taking it back to Verizon for a warranty replacement, is to back up any notes or anything not stored on the memory card and do a Hard Reset. If all goes well, when you relogin into gmail during setup, your settings should go thru along with all your contacts, calander appts and in the market, under downloads, you will see a list of all previously downloaded apps.

    If that doesnt fix the issue, then its hardware related which then will need to be swapped out at your local Verizon Retail Corporate store.

    One last thing you could try is using one of the OTA updates that leaked and usually during those it could fix the issue without voiding your warranty. If that dont work, call around to each VZW store to figure out if they have the warranty replacements in stock.

    yeah tried the force update works smoothly so far, got all the new changes to the video/camera and has started to record, but still force closes before it saves and earlier today it actually restarted it self and got stuck between the droid logo & the boot animation... had to remove battery...oh well can still make calls and take pics. I'll call around see what i can come up with. thanks again.

    I would never do such a thing to my customers but I guess you live in a completely different area. Anywho, may your new Droid bring you many fond memories as your old one did.
