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

    My Droid X suddenly began to behave strangely. I could dial out, but as soon as I put my phone up to my ear the phone would disconnect and return to the locked scren. No problem if I used speaker phone.

    Our friends at the local VZ store were able to replicate the problem. Dial the number - hold phone vertically - cover up sensor that turns off the display while you talk - bingo!! - phone shuts down and goes to locked screen.

    The fix? -- Remove the battery booster program (that may not be the correct name). Now all is back to normal. VZ also suggested that I remove the Lookout virus prevention program as that program is always active and can slow down other apps.

    I removed Lookout and the Playon program that would only run a few seconds before locking up in "buffering" mode now runs just fine. I guess tha moral here is something you all know and I am just beginning to learn -- open source programs such as we have with Android may well cause "interesting" problems.

    I've been doing this (Android OS) for over a year now I have not heard of a single anti-virus app that doesn't cause issues sooner or later.

    Glad you got your issues worked out!!
