    Within the past two weeks my phone has went completely berserk! It CAN work normally, but most of the time it has recurring erratic behavior.


    • when i go to gmail and open a mail it only shows white screen
    • Google Voice texts do not go through whatsoever
    • Force Closes "Google Voice, android.home, android.core, Handcent, Advanced Task Manager Pro, and a few others
    • GPS is a few states off...sometimes
    • 3G connection is up and down more often than not
    • WiFi seems to have no effect on net browsing experience
    • A lot of apps are not showing in the app store
    • Streaming Radio "Pandora, Grooveshark, Last.FM" are not working as well as they used to "freezing, not working at all".. especially Grooveshark
    Have any of you guys had these same issues? Is this because of the update on the 22nd? I hope that the upcoming update will fix most of this crap. Do I need to restart all over again? "wipe it all??"

    You may need to. I've had plenty of experience with computers to know that if you don't know what's going on, reinstall the OS. In this case, I think the factory defaults reset is the closest thing you can do. Just back your stuff up, or sync it or whatever, and then just do a clean-wipe.

    Google Voice hasn't worked for me for the past few weeks, perhaps since the last update? It force closes when the phone first turns on. So I just uninstalled it because I never really used it anyways. Still, it's bad it's happening with a Google app on a Google OS phone.

    Mine just decided to delete all my pictures on my sd card. It left the ringtones alone, but my pictures and some backgrounds I downloaded are all gone.

    Some people have notice some issues after the update.... I'd suggest if a AppKiller and Battery Pull does not resolve your issue... Back up all your contacts and pictures on MyLookOut.com and Do a factory restore... it will restore your phone to how it is supposed to work with the newest updates... :D

    I have noticed my battery seems worse and it force closes sometimes. The screen doesn't seem as responsive. i can't really give examples....when it happens I turn it off then back on. Seems to help. Hopefully all will be fixed soon. I love the phone overall.

    Mine has been horrible since the update, completely crazy....incredible lag on the keyboard, random freezing and glitching...I'm going to wait until this next update and then if it doesn't work, I'll reset.

    My Google Voice also forces closes whenever I reboot my phone, but it still works for my voicemail. (Which is the only thing I use it for so I'm not sure about sms)

    Me, too, though I think it's actually the Google Voice recognition engine that's force closing. I'm just gonna cross my fingers and wait for 2.1 ...
