Thanks for your help so far, Spaz. I gotta call it a night and get some sleep. I'll check back in the morning to see if you've been able to come up with anything. :)

I'm beginning to wonder if its a hardware problem? My calls are set to ring (loud), my texts and gtalk vibrate, and my email is silent. I've done nothing different than the OP.

If you've tried everything, I would do a factory reset of your phone. Make sure your contacts are backed up/synced with gmail, and that you have backed up all your important data to your PC. Something in your phone just isn't working right. Hopefully a reset will work
If not, spaz is probably right and you need VZW to look at it.

Yeah, maybe it is a hardware problem. I'll try taking it to the Verizon store and see if they can do anything. If they can't, frankly this phone has too many quirks for me.

Transferring my contacts and appts from Outlook/Palm was brutal (ten hours total) and the Google calendar is crazy - it moved every single one of my appointments one hour when I corrected the time zone to MST. My notifications are uncontrollable and with all the email I get, this thing never stops making noise. -- but I can't afford to miss a call or text message. There are literally THOUSANDS of pages online detailing people's problems with Droid.

Maybe this is a good phone for techno-whizzes like you guys but I am a realtor and probably should have gotten a Blackberry. I'll give it another week and if things don't get easier, I'll send it back. But you guys are wonderful. Many, many thanks, Spaz, for all your efforts on this. :icon_ banana:

i would actually go with husker on this one. If youre thinking about taking it in to verizon you might as well try a factory data reset. you would be amazed at how many problems that can solve and to be perfectly honest thats probably the first thing verizon would do for you. once you get this problem sorted i'd be willing to bet that you will fall in love with your droid and never want a blackberry ever again.

good luck and keep us posted.

Factory data reset did not fix the problem but at least I didn't lose any of my contacts or appointments - backup assistant brought everything back in. I am off to the Verizon store to see what they can do. I'll keep you all posted.
