    I updated the operating system per prompt to the 4.5.605 and the problem I've encountered is when I power off, the device will turn itself back on:angry:. I find this really annoying. Any suggestions? I am not tech savvy so plain english in layman terms is appreciated! If this issue has been addressed in another thread, direction to the thread would be nice. Thank you

    I'm guessing that this will erase all pictures and apps that I've added.

    It doesn't touch anything on your SD card. Your pictures should be fine and Google backs up all your market installed apps.

    Did this fix the problem? I am having the same issue with my Droid X. Sometimes I have to shut it down 2 or 3 times before it will stay off.

    Yes it did. However I lost my apps and had to find them again. Thankfully they were all free but unfortunately one of my apps is no longer available.

    You can always root and install Titanium Backup. Or search Google for the app name .apk

    Boot Manager

    I did a search for the lost app and found a site that said the app is no longer available. It was the Mongo ringtone maker which was great because I could record some odd sound and use that as a ringtone or notification tone. I guess I don't really need it since I keep my phone of silent anyway!

    Well, now it seems the hard restart didn't solve the problem. I shut the phone off last night and when I woke up the phone was on with a notification telling me I have an update for one of my apps.

    Guess I won't be doing the factory reset. I also have some old apps installed I don't want to lose and I haven't had very good luck with the back-up apps either.
    Maybe I'll just leave it on all the time.

    I stopped in Verizon today and they couldn't help. I was told to contact technical service. I'll be calling them tomorrow. I'll post the results.
