    This has happened to me three times since getting my phone a little over a month ago. The four signal bars at the top go gray and an 'X' appears over the top of them. After this happens, all of my applications force close.

    The first time this happened, i took my phone to Verizon and they said they have NEVER seen or heard of this happening so they just swapped out my phone for a brand new one. This worked for a day, until the same thing happened. Instead of waiting in line at Verizon for 3 hours again, i called customer service. The lady said it could be from an app (but the ppl at verizon said there is NO way it could be from an app???) So I just decided to do a hard reset on my phone. It has worked for about 2 weeks and now its at it again.
    Will someone please help me! Its starting to be such a nuisance!!

    Well, which apps are you running? You could try removing them one at a time and see if the problem goes away. Or maybe if you list them, somebody will notice an app that has caused a problem in the past.

    Well I just tried that too, and NOW i have a battery symbol with an exclamation mark!!! lol what gives? Dang, I have bad luck with phones! I really dont want to do a hard reset on my phone, just bought some apps that I would like to keep...If i go into verizon they'll just give me another one, but I just want the ONE that I end up with to KEEP working.

    If you reset your phone, you can re-download the paid apps as much as you need without being charged.

    Your apps stay with your google checkout account which stays with your gmail account. So even if you have to replace the phone the apps will still be there for you when you sign back in.
