Hi everyone, I'm new here, obviously, and very relieved to find this forum. I switched from Iphone to Droid back in April and have nothing but problems, now on my 3rd phone. On my first Droid I would get text messages from one person but it would show up as if someone else were sending it. I received my Verizon notification that my bill had been paid and it showed up as if a friend had sent it so I took it back to the store and they finally believed me. Then the speakers went. The new replacement phone, with the very first phone call, I couldn't hear the caller at all. The phone I have now is not much better, but since the trouble isn't consistent, I haven't taken it back in.
Sorry for the vent, just very frustrated, and glad to find a forum that might give me some fixes.

Have a blessed weekend ...

Try adjusting your setting as well before resetting, make sure you have the latest OS downloaded

Thank you!

I appreciate your responses ... I have the Droid 2 Global, and I have no idea what it means to 'root' the phone, although I've seen the phrase in a lot of the posts. I did go to settings to see if I could get the latest update, but it tells me no updates are available - I'm on version 2.4.330.A956, which from reading another thread, isn't the latest version. I haven't downloaded any ringtones, but the funny thing is, the problem isn't consistent. Sometimes the sound is clear and other times it's so low I can't hear it at all.

Since you're unrooted, I'd recommend a quick factory reset as well. Make sure you write down a list of the apps you've downloaded, as market will not remember all of them. As for having the latest update, the 4.5.607 update is rolling out in stages right now; it may be some time before you receive the update. You can also try *228 in dialer, perhaps your issue is due to signal strength. Tell us if it persists.
