Help! Issues with my DX!
My original Droid broke in January, and since I was due for an upgrade I figured I would use it to get a new phone. I first went with the Samsung Galaxy S, which was a major mistake. I had that phone for about 48 hours and wasnt able to make a single phone call or use a single app without getting an error. So I took it back to my verizon wireless store and they were happy to trade it in (30-day exchange) for whatever I want, and since I loved my Droid I decided to go for the Droid X.
The first couple of weeks with the DX were amazing, and I was super happy that I picked that phone. After about 3 weeks of use, I started getting error messages when downloading various apps, "Download Error -18." I learned that in order to download the game with that issue, I have to unmount my SD card (which is ridiculous since I selected to download all my apps to my phone and not the card). After other frustrations with it freezing, or failing to install apps, I took it into my local VZW store and they showed me how to factory reset my phone. Since February 1st I have had to do this about 3 or 4 different times due to download errors as well as the phone freezing, or other issues. It's extremely frustrating and makes me want to get a NEW phone, but of course all the VZW reps at the store will offer is a refurbished phone mailed to me.
The latest issue I have been having, which started today, is "Download Unsuccessful, Try Again." This message appears for anything I try to update or download. Of course I discovered this after I paid for an app that I am now unable to download and the "refund" option is not available (it's been about 5 hours). I was wondering if anyone else has been having similar problems with their Android phone. I tried the suggestions on the Verizon website (wait 10 minutes, turn off/on phone), I cleared the cache on the market app, I've pulled the battery and I've reset some Data on the google apps. I *think* I've done everything except for factory reset my phone--I'm afraid to do this because I'm worried that it wont fix it and then I wont be able to install ANY apps and basically have a stock phone.
