Have you tried dialing *228 option 2 for 3g? And are you using a third party messaging like handcent? If so open up stock text messaging and hit menu key and uncheck notifications and that should help.

I was scared to root at first also, so I read up on all the guides for a few weeks then went for it. It's really rather easy as long as you follow directions and don't panic. Just make sure you read how to do everything before trying and if for some reason you don't feel comfortable doing it afterwards, don't!

If you don't want to root take it to Verizon and really complain and they might give you another lol. Although reboots are common with stock or rooted phones.

Would it make a diff if I get a new one? It seems this problem is wide spread...

Not always true. I have been one of the lucky ones that has had very few issues or reboots but others have constant reboots throughout the day. Each device can differ from the next. Besides if they give you another it will have GB already installed and some have less issues with those.

Boot into stock recovery, and wipe all the caches, and to a phone reset from there. This will reset phone to stock gingy and will also clean up files that might be left from froyo. You will fix your apps and widgets .
