    I sound like a broken record on most of these posts...but try factory reset...I did it once after my phone slowed wayyy down and now everything is great. I am about to start a poll asking how many have experienced issues and, out of those, who has installed ATK. Me thinks there is a connection...(insert some form of dramatic music for effect)
    Don't just take a trip...go on a journey

    This section (Droid X Help) let alone is filled with complaints and problems...I'm starting to wonder if these are normal things which my gut feelings are telling me they aren't.
    All you hear is complaints, Not many users are going to bother looking for a forum, signing up just to say..."Hey, My X is running Great"....

    Mine has been flawless....uptime is 235 hours right now......

    At running the risk of being flamed - if this is his first smartphone, it is too early to say he is not a good candidate. He is asking and learning - which is not a bad thing - if he comes to the decision that this is not the phone for him, at least he did try.

    I do agree with you in regards to the small quirks & bugs and being on the cutting edge will definitely push the limits and patience (I remember owning the MotoQ - swore I would never own another Moto phone - thank goodness I didn't listen to myself on that one).
    Failure isn't falling down, failure is staying down.

    It's not an abrasive comment from your side, you have a point, but my 14 threads haven't been all about my phone malfunctioning on me. This IS my first smartphone since 2007 when I had a BB. Maybe I am being picky but I just didn't know that smartphones these days would come so buggy and we as consumers who pay over $200.00 for a device that we will use many times each day would find its "bugs" acceptable.

    Just a few minutes ago I was going through some more customization (widgets here and there) on my phone then I went to connect to Droid Market and it couldn't connect. I checked my internet and it was at 3G and processing. Guess what I did in order for my internet to go back to working properly? Yup, you're right! Rebooted it again.

    I ahven't had any issues with mine other than the initial setup when FB was syncronizing with my contacts and such... It's been pretty good to me so far. I'm just waiting until they have an unbricker for it so I can root it and start messing around without too much worry that I will have a very expensive brick... And now that they have the source code out, it should be even easier!!!

    I have not had any issues that was not user fault(ie ME). I had to do a battery pull once and a factory reset cause i accidentally accepted something i should not have. Since the reset the phone has been a dream.

    Update: I did a hard reset on my DX, hopefully this fixes the glitches for good. Currently setting her up again.

    Every time I have installed an ap that uses text to voice, and downloads same, I start having freeze issues.
    Today I downloaded translater, it needed the text to voice software, as soon as it downloaded, the freezes started. No big deal, I just stay away from that type of program.
