    For me, if I tap on the screen after the little photo in the corner disappears, it will reappear and I can tap it and then hit the menu button and delete.
    I can do that too. it just kinda sucks that if the pic is blurry i have to wait for it to disappear touch the icon then delete when you could just delete right then and there before the update.. Don't know why they thought this feature was not worth keeping..

    Is anyone else experiencing lags in the phone? I have shut off my WiFi and my Bluetooth while here in my office and only have Weatherbug running and it still seems very sluggish. Any assistance?

    I'm having a serious issue with my phone contacts. I had previously owned a BB and when I switched to the Droid X last fall, transferred all of my contacts to the phone via backup assistant. Now that I've updated to GB, the only contacts that show are the ones I have entered manually into the DX since that first transfer.

    I thought I lost all of the other contacts, but recently received a call from someone whose contact info displayed when the call came in, but is not in my contacts. It's like they're still on my phone, but I can't find them. Could anybody help with this?!

    Thanks,

    Has anyone experienced a problem with clicking a phone number in the default browser? I used to be able to search for a business and then just click on the number and it would bring it up in the dialer. Now it just brings up the dialer, but the number is not inserted automatically. That is my one big gripe with GB as I frequently use the voice search to find a business and then just click on the number to call them while I'm driving. I hardly had to even look at the phone.
    That still works in Dolphin Browser HD.

    If you had your contacts syncing with backup assistant (this is a mistake, by the way...you're always better served by Google than by Verizon), they should all be stored in your Verizon account under a menu item called Backup Assistant. You may have to search a little to find it's location on the Verizon web site, as i can't recall it's exact location. You also have to logged in to your Verizon account (viewing it from a PC, not from your phone), or create a login if you don't already have one. If you do a search in Google (for something like "moving my verizon backup assistant contacts to google contacts"), you'll find some instructions for how to export them from backup assistant and import them into Gmail. Then everything will sync to your phone. Then, on your phone, go into Contacts>menu>more>settings>Contact storage and make sure Google is selected.

    So I updated my wifes Droid X to gingerbread using the ota method. Now none of the apps like maps and navigation or music will work. Every time shes clicks on it, a force close messages appears. does anybody know a way to fix this problem. thanks for the help.
    If clearing the cache doesn't help, a factory reset will likely fix your problems and be easier than sbf'ing.

    Flashed full .340 sbf back up and running still no root
    go here to acquire the correct sbf: http://forum.androidcentral.com/moto...ctions-gb.html

    and go here to find the rooted gingerbread update youre looking for. make sure you read the instructions very carefully before you start. youll be using method 2, by the way: Official DX Gingerbread 2.3.3 (4.5.596) Release Thread - Something for everyone

    no one has found a way to root the ota gingerbread once it has been applied, which is why z4root is not working for you once you update to gingerbread. using the method in the second link i gave you will give you a rooted version of the OTA.

    and for next time, not typing in all caps and explaining your issue in complete sentences will typically get you a quicker response from the community

    Have you gone into menu>display options to make sure all the groups in Backup Assistant are checked?

    I'd try a factory reset, or switch to iphone if you prefer that device. None of those issues exist on my OTA Gingerbread.

    They are brighter, WHEN they want to come on. I've been in a pitch black room and they don't come on. Very annoying.
    Same here. I'm going to try and check to see if they come on based on what I'm doing at any given time. Maybe it's an app driven thing.

    My problem is going from wifi to 3g. When I leave my house and turn wifi off the phone won't kick into 3g. I have to turn it off and let it reboot in order to use any data.

    Its getting very annoying to have restart my phone before I leave for work every morning.

    I'm not seeing this problem at all, but I use Y5 - Battery Saver to automatically switch between known wifi networks and 3g. It's a free app if you want to try it. If that doesn't work, you could always try a factory reset. That usually fixes most weird problems.

    Every other reboot I get the Red M and then a lit black screen.
    I let the phone drain today to "calibrate battery" since I did a factory reset.
    Plugged phone in from wall to charge, watched M load then black lit screen appeared.
    Pulled Battery, watched M load, then 0% battery loaded up.

    At 100% full charge unplugged, press power, watched M load, again with the black lit screen. Looking over at it as I type, still black lit screen.

    I noticed this after successfully installing 2part GB, so yes it was the same routine before i did the Factory Data Reset, which is why I did it.

    Honestly every other reboot this happens and is only cured by a battery pull.

    Any comments welcome.

    Noticed that when my X is in the car Dock at night, all the car dock icons are the lightly glowing orangish color except for the top center "Direction/ Navigation" icon. it stays bright white.. Anyone else notice this? Another pretty annoying GB update bug that Bugs me!

    Side note, the damn hard buttons like to stay on sometimes.. Wish they would just put it back like it was and take the hard buttons off the light sensor..
