    I've had my X for about a week now, and three times it has just "lost its programming". I'm not sure if that is the terminology, but this is what happens:

    I'll try to send a txt and the phone will fail to do it. The first time it happened I was in the VZW store looking at accessories and I let them handle it - They had to dial *228 and reprogram it. It has done the same thing 2 more times, and now right now it appears to have done it again. What is going on here?

    I don't know if this phone has a radio or not, the VZW person claimed it didn't. You know the radio a BB has that can be turned on and off..Does this phone have that? I am using ATK and I think it could possibly be killing something that is causing this problem. My wife just tried to send a txt and i didn't get it..

    What do you guys think?

    However, after reading these threads, http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid-x/141310-factory-reset-kills-3g-sticky-above.html and http://androidforums.com/support-tr...2463-loss-3g-data-service-how-can-i-tell.html, and searching the forums it seems that the entire basis for the Sticky regarding factory resets is purely what some anonymous "source within Verizon Wireless" supposedly said. I wish they would remove or at least edit that Sticky thread until there is some confirmation.

    I guess I mean the cdma radio. You know how on a BB if the battery gets low it will turn of the radio to save battery life.. That was my first thought when it happened, but I couldn't find any radio on/off controls. The lady in the verizon store says it isn't like a BB is and that it didn't have that..

    I did read that sticky, but my issue seemed to be something different as I have not done a factory reset.

    I keep the wifi and gps off in an effort to save battery life. Don't use bluetooth so that's off too. Don't use FM radio either.
