Default DROID ISSUES: Post yours here via Reply

Google will recognize and focus on such a large, centralized thread of these issues if you add yours here.

Firmware

·When alarm is set and clock is docked in multimedia station, sometimes the snooze/dismiss buttons don't appear on the screen when the alarm goes off
·When a shortcut to a folder was left open on a side home screen, returning to center home from any application brings you back to this opened folder in the side screen instead of center home
·When sliding phone open/closed, touchscreen and buttons should be disabled until slide is complete
·Widget update problems (clocks, weather, etc)
·No native ability to change vibration intensities
·Voice search is HORRIBLE for calling people
·Voice search should be able to open a new txt to a contact

Application
·When composing a txt to a contact, no native ability to add additional contacts to the txt message
·Contacts application is screwy. When editing a contact, scroll down and there are multiple "google contacts" entries for a contact
·No native settings to change clock appearance or add date on home screen
·Long press on a contact during home search should result in options (edit, call, txt, etc)
·When viewing a contact (not editing), long press on a field should allow editing of specific field
·No native ability to add shortcuts on home to direct call/txt contacts. Should also allow for direct calls/txts to groups of contacts as well

Camera
·Camera is awful (blurry photos, shutter timing)
·Camera app is very clunky (viewing pics, zooming)

Google Navigation
·No ability to set favorites ("navigate to work", “navigate home”)
·No ability to go to last visited/favorite locations
·Easy to accidently exit out of a current navigation
·NO ESTIMATED TIME OF ARRIVAL

I love my phone and everything about it. Ofcourse it is not perfect, but it is still hands down the best phone/laptop I have ever used. I'm sure any issues will be addressed in future updates.

The only thing that annoys me is that the phone has mutitouch capabilities and they basically left that out of all of the phones operations. I hope they incorporate that ability into more procedures in an update.

Otherwise you have one happy droid lover right here. I think my girlfriend might be a little jealous of my little droid friend.......lol

I think my Google Navigation has ETA. Or at least "minutes to destination." Am I wrong about that?

my only annoyance is when I end a call it goes to the recent calls screen, not the home screen. Anyone know how to fix this?

You're right about that. Most GPS's these days have an ETA on the main screen in addition to the "time remaining". Would be nice to have.

Awesome, didn't see that before. Wish I could direct call/message multiple contacts though. Maybe have some sort of grouping capabilities in the Contacts app.

Happens to me too. Not really an annoyance for me though. I'm having trouble where when I pull the phone away from my head, it doesn't bring the screen back up right away. Is there any way to quick-end a call?

The only way I know to end is when you pull the phone away there is a button in the center top row.

A few issues
For some reason the Droid does not perform simple tasks other phones does.

1. The browser needs folders for favorites so you can group bookmarks.
2. Google NAV / Maps do not have favorites.
3. Contacts only sorted by First, Last not choice of Last, First.
4. Can not send attachments (pictures do not count) I want to be able to
send files, docments, etc
5. No built in To Do list.
6. Ability to browse networks via wifi. (pull/place files off my desktop
via wifi)
7. can not cut and paste from email without great difficulty and slideout
keyboard
8. Camera very slow to open.
9. ability to add custom notifications. Only notifications available are native
sounds. Can not use ringtones for notifications.
10. No speed dial.
11. Need search from contacts screen.
12. Do not automatically add contacts to favorites without ability to remove.

Default some issues

I love the phone. As with all phones this one has issues.

1) as I'm typing this on my droid, there is a lag with the typing. (Just noticed it today)
2) my biggest concern is the alarm clock. When it goes off it freezes as the alarm is still going off. Then force closes. Its loud and will not shut off until I take out the battery. I'm going to exchange it maybe its a issue with this handset.
3)camera is terrible. Shutter timer is insanely slow. The pics come out very blurry.
4) cut copy and paste is a lot better on the iphone. So is everything else I mentioned. Waiting for a big update to see if I'm willing to stay with verizon.

Default Yahoo mail

As of the 29th of November yahoo mail does not function either. This is after thorough research and it worked fine previous to that date.

My Yahoo and all other mails work very well. My Major malfunction is that when using bluetooth and the backlight times out I can not get back to a screen without disconnecting. The main prob is that most of the time I use the phone in the dark. In good lighting it seems to be ok. Camera Sucks for 5meg, and too slow to use effectively.
However its a learning process and I still like the darn thing.

As stated, no folders for bookmarks/favorites. I am actually suprised more people do not have a problem with this. I create folders on one of the homes screens (for ex. Work, Phone, Me etc). Inside of these folders I place shortcuts to my web favs. Pain in the arse to do this though.

My favs work well and I am glad to have internet on my phone. It is not a time saver and my work is not that important. However if it keeps me off work computers then its all good. My favs I leave right in the browser menu. Have not found the need to have elsewhere. Trying not to have much of anything on home scree to avoid clutter of the wall paper. Its a pic of my awesome girl holding a shotgun...thats warm and fuzzy!

What about the charger. I ask because the 2 usual suspects are the battery and charger. Are you rooted?

The charger came with the phone. I also tether it to my computer.
As for rooted, I don't know so that probably means it's not. I have had the phone a long time.
