    Some of you may have read my posts in the troubleshooting sections regarding the problems I've had with my Droid X. Here they are:

    Dead pixel
    Crappy battery life
    Wifi network crashes

    Well, everything has been resolved and I could not be more pleased with my Droid.

    The dead pixel issue was resolved when VZ sent me a new phone yesterday. And I must add that the new phone is even faster than the first - not sure why but I'm beginning to think there must have been a serious issue with the 1st phone.

    Battery life: I let my battery drain to zero and I removed all of the social media/social networking apps and this had an amazing impact on battery life. Before I could only go 4 or 5 hours of light use before the device drained and now I can go more than all day with moderate to heavy use and I still have more than 1/2 the battery life.

    Wifi issue: it was as simple as a setting in the advanced section (Thanks again MacII) and this cleared up everything.

    I really like, no, love this phone. It was a tough decision stepping away from my iphone but now that I'm on board and I have a phone that works I could not be happier.

    If you are having battery or other probelms with your phone it's probably not related to the hardware itself - its either a bad battery, a power draining app or a setting causing you grief.

    What setting cleared up your WiFi problems?

    setting>wireless & networks>wifi settings>advanced (hit the menu button)>enable auto IP

    Before it would either not connect to any wifi network or when it did it would connect for 15 seconds, get hung up and crash the wifi network requiring a rest of the cable modem and router and phone.

    I tried it on the 1st phone and it fixed the problem immediately so I know it was not a hardware issue.

    Thanks. Just thought it'd be good to document in the thread in case someone turns it up in a search, or in case mine suffers from a similar problem when I get it.
