    A few days ago, there was an obvious lag. I didn't have any applications open, but when I clicked on the text message shortcut the screen was black for perhaps 2 seconds before it finally opened. Then I clicked on somebody's name to send the text and the phone restarted. It also happened when I was trying to post on this forum. The keyboard locked up on my droid and then the phone restarted. It also happened again yesterday when I was using a couple other applications, but I don't remember which one.

    Can anybody help me or tell me how to go about finding help? I'm thinking it might be an application I loaded over the last few days (hoping). Is there a way to find out which apps are the most recently downloaded or installed?

    I checked this link: http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid/32113-phone-restarts-automatically.html

    but it was of no help

    The easiest way to figure out which apps you loaded recently would be to get the AppBrains app and load it - it has a lot of sorting methods, but the default is , IIRC, sorted by date last updated / installed in descending order (newest first).

    Thanks. I have that installed. Is there any way to troubleshoot? I have log collector installed. Even now there is a big lag as I type this.

    is the sync icon in the notification bar?

    If not, I'd try powering off the phone, then removing the battery for a full minute, and then replacing battery and powering on. This is called a battery pull.

    Then, with a fresh phone, you should be able to better maneuver and take a look at things like services and apps that are loaded into memory and the like....
