    I have also had the Gallary problem. Click it once, then it would flash the folders, then back to the home screen. I actually did a factory reset, and the device has never been faster, more responsive, better battery conserving. I also kept a few unneeded apps off the device so that may help contribute to the battey conserving if they needed background updates. not sure though.
    How did you go about saving everything on the phone?

    There seems to be a lot of people reporting issues with device to computer connectivity. I've had issues where if I go from USB mass storage to charge only while it's connected to my computer, it will freeze and reboot itself. Others are saying as soon as they connect it to the computer via USB it reboots.
    The factory reset fixed that for me.

    I got to page 4 and didn't see my particular issue posted so here it is:
    Arbitriarily (sp?) My phone will go to the droid eye like its rebooting. After 2 seconds im back to my lock screen but its annoying.
    My typing is a little laggy and Dolphin HD is strugglin to load pages but I blame the network and where I am for that.
    Thougts?

    thanx, but how do i revert morphs back to stock
    and yea I forgot Im running that theme 928 or what ever its called that deodoxes my phone
    as far as the morphs go, you hopefully made backups before you applied them on your phone? easiest way to go back. you also do need to reodex your system files; if you go to 928's site, he has a "back-to-stock" odexed zip you can download to do this.

    Problems I had with lag and random reboots are now gone after doing factory reset. Now 3 days and not a single problem (compared to 5 random reboots within a 20 hour window previously.

    I do have to say though - what a pain in the a$$. Coming from Blackberry I have to say the Android platform sorely lacks an easy way to back-up and restore the device. This functionality was built into the Blackberry desktop. But have to say it's really positive with how fast and effective the software reset and initialize is - that's leaps ahead of the BB line.

    The last few times it worked fine, but at least I know it's not only me.

    I'll have to try the factory reset myself. did you use a program to back up your installed apps before you did it? Which one did you use?

    in my opinion the droid is much easier and more comprehensive to back up. backing up and reinstalling blackberry apps with BBSAK never worked properly for me. and oddly enough my emails would never seem to restore properly from desktop manager. they would always show up with red x's.

    download a program called mybackup pro. it's $5 well spent. it will back up your apps and mms/sms and contacts, etc. right to the SD card. wipe the phone, re-download the program (which will automatically register since you've already paid for it on your google account) then just restore everything. piece of cake. if you only need it once get the free version but i recommend paying for it and having it to automatic backups to your sd card.

    i just noticed again today that my market kept FC on me. the other day i got a FC on an NFL app that i never even ran. I really wish motorola/big red would Q/A their software before they release it.

    Edit: one thing i NEVER had with froyo was any FC's. Occasionally on the battery manager, but i just stopped looking.

    Here's one thing I've noticed. If I reboot my phone for any reason, and I go into Marketplace to update or download something, it will Force Close. However, if I go back into it, not only will it continue to download, but it will never FC again, only that first time after a reboot. I think maybe once the new Marketplace rolls around it won't have that issue.

    Exactly the same thing here.

    Having random reboots now. Never had those before, just in the middle of something/anything and it'll reboot.

    for those having market issues, go to menu>settings>applications>manage applications>all>market and try a data clear in the market app to see if that fixes anything. i was having the same issue, and this fixed it

    Dumb question - if I do that will it "forget" what my downloads are?

    It won't. The marketplace scans your phone for the installed apps and populates a list of the ones you have.

    The 1-year warranty is a manufacturer's warranty, so Verizon can't do much about it. He would have to contact Motorola about sending it to them and having them fix it, only downside is not having a phone to use and the unknown length of time without it, unless he has a backup to use temporarily.
    I warrantied out 4 bb storms and 2 bb tours within my "one year warranty" period. Verizon handles it all, and pretty well at that.

    I have had phone freeze/reboot issues. Upon waking the phone and beginning to slide to unlock, the phone freezes and reboots.

    I have done two factory resets now and it sill does it.

    My phone goes from 100% to less than 15% in 8hrs and I have my phone battery managed not to sync during that time period. I have the extended battery and have never had this problem before. Only had the batter for about 3 months, don't know if it is the batter or the update. WTF. Very angry.

    Just checked battery usage, phone idle and cell standby combined were using almost 80 percent of my battery life during the night. WTF is going on?
