    Why does my phone freeze up so much?

    So I have owned my phone for almost 12 days now and it has frozen on me numerous times now. I also have noticed when I have the display on it gets hot. I am not running apps and it freezes. When I use the GPS it freezes. I just wanted to know if anyone else is having this problem. My wife has the Droid 2 and never freezes on her. If this keeps up I will exchange mine for the Droid 2. I donít really care for bragging rights on having THE DROID X if the phone is not going to work properly.

    Do you have a task killer installed?

    Talk to Customer Service....you are still within your 30 days return policy. Ask for a new phone.

    Probably a problematic app, are you rooted and it's also been mentioned are you running a task killer?

    I'd run a factory reset on it and if that doesn't make a difference then talk to Verizon for an exchange.

    MIUI gets me hot like Kelly.

    I have a task killer yes. My phone is not rooted. I did the reset with Verizon. Still runs hot. Never had a phone freeze on me. The phone has very poor battery life. Hope I don't have any more freeze problem. Otherwise I will get the D2. Thanks for all the help guys. I will post if it does freeze again.

    I highly doubt it's a hardware issue....

    What would you assume it would be BacknBlack. I really like the phone and would like to keep it. I just don't want to be stuck with something down the road that has problems. Thanks.

    I think your issue is specific to that one device.

    Exchange it bro.....dont even bother with the troubleshooting. My Droid 1 had issues when I got it, I took it back and the 2nd one worked fine.

    Seems to be the trend..... Did you reinstall all the apps you had after the factory reset?
    As JOKOO mentioned, exchange it for another X if your within the 30 days if your unhappy with it.
