I'm having a problem with my Droid where it's frequently freezing and I have to reset it by removing the battery. at first it happened once in awhile, but over the last few days it's been happening multiple times everyday. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there anything I can do to remedy it?

This has happened to me yes, but not that often. I think these problems are usually caused by 3rd party programs - like task managers - or other programs temporarily chewing up all the memory and/or CPU time. Usually the freeze is followed by a force close message.

Yeah, I've had that happen a few times also. I'm not a fan of pulling the battery. It sometimes is the only option. But, If you're able to be without the device for a few minutes just try sitting it down and waiting a minute or two. It MAY come out of it. The more you press buttons and switches the more system resources are being used and the worse the problem causing the freeze becomes.
I do hate that there is no dedicated power off button. If the screen is unresponsive there is no other way to power cycle than to yank the battery.

I do agree ^^^ if there is some third party downloaded app that was FC more than once in the past week or so.. money spent or not, that puppy's out of here.
To the OP: if you find out there was an offending app, please post here and share the info.

Well, it seems to have calmed down a bit, not having as many problems, but I haven't doe anything so I'm assuming that it'll be back soon. I'm having a new problem though, it's a camera/sd card problem, I started a new thread for it (http://forum.androidcentral.com/moto...a-problem.html).

Some of the freezing problems I had disappeared when I dumped the slow as hell 16gb microsd card it came with and popped in a class 6 microsd card. You may want to try this as I have no slowdown or freezing that was caused by the amount of data I had saved to the card.

It has been documented (with empirical data only) that task killers, virus protection, various keyboard apps and others have caused or contributed to FC's. On my phone the only FC issue I've had was traced to Swype and Launcher 2.1 not playing well together. I could close either and the phone was fine, but if they were both being used I would get FC's. You just have to experiment with the apps you've loaded and use regularly and find the culprit(s).
