    So every so often, my Droid clears my home screen. I'll turn it on and all my shortcuts and widgets are gone. Once I spent all the time getting my home screen back in place again and a few hours later it brought all my apps back. On top of the recreated home screen. Very strange.

    Anybody have any idea of what is going on here?

    Try using another home app like pandahome or home++ for free home screen alternatives that might solve your problem. Otherwise I'm not sure of a technical fix if its regarding the stock android home app. but hopefully someone else will be able to give you some tips.

    Happens to me. I'm hoping it's a bug that will get fixed soon.

    If I turn the phone off then back on, my shortcuts/widgets reappear - better than manually putting them all back.

    Are you using any home screen apps other than the stock? I haven't installed any because of these bug reports. I have had no problems. On the other hand, I don't actually have any shortcuts or widgets on my desktop except for those from Apps Organizer and none of those have disappeared.

    The same thing just happened to me today for the first time. I powered off and back on and I still have no shortcuts on my home screen. Do I really have to add them all back manually? :(

    I remember what I was doing right before this happened--trying to read/send a text message. Not that I think that was the direct cause, but I wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary. I also don't use themes or any custom apps that control my shortcuts/home screen.

    Apparently I had to reboot it twice... Strange.
  9. Bumped. This never ever to me before the 2.0.1 update. It's happened at least 5 times since. I can't say that it's definitely related, but it sure as heck sounds suspicious. I'm not using any Home replacements or themes, I use Weatherbug, Power Control, and Calendar widgets. Anyone know how to get the ball rolling on a resolution? Call Verizon, who will send me to Moto, who will send me to Google, who will send me to Verizon? :(
