    So as of a few weeks ago, my droid does something kind of strange and annoying. Usually happens every couple days or so..

    Basically it seems like its lost service all together.. it doesnt recieve any texts, and everytime i try to send one it says "cannot send." Once i see it do this a few times i turn it off, then back on and my phone is flooded w/ texts that i hadn't recieved since it started doing the whole thing.

    Its almost as if my phone loses service for an hour+ then when i turn it off/on again it gets its service back and recieves all the texts ive missed... this is starting to get really old.. anyone else have this problem? or know of a fix?

    I think you can reprogram the service by dialing *228 and using option 1. I would wait for someone else to chime in who knows a little bit more about it, but I think it does something to recalibrate your signal or the towers the phone uses.. something like that. It may alleviate the specific problem you're having if you know that Verizon service should be good in your area. It could be an issue with the phone, but it seems like a signal thing to me.

    *22899 or *228 option 1 are both methods for renewing your towers and reprogramming your phone.
