    I am having an issue with the gmail app on my Droid. Whenever I try to write an email I am never actually able to complete it. I will be typing along and all of a sudden the screen will flash white. Then, one of three things will happen:

    1) The gmail app quits altogether, I am spit out to the home screen, and upon reopening the gmail app the email I was typing is long gone.

    2) The app spits me back out to the gmail inbox and the email I was in the middle of typing is gone.

    3) Part or all of the text in the "Compose Mail" box is gone.

    I can't seem to find a rhyme or reason to the three different outcomes.

    Has anyone else seen this? I tried a search on some different keywords, but haven't seen this issue reported. Any idea what might be going on and how I could fix it?

    I am having precisely the same problem, though it didn't occur immediately. I have been adding apps so I suspect it is an issue with an application conflict. Will be visiting the Verizon store and will post if I find out anything useful.
