    Just curious how often people turn it off and turn it back on.. reset it.. I found out that doing it once maybe twice a day gets rid of alot of FC's and keeps it running nice and fast ... even after I make it multi task like champ..

    I usually reset it if it feels a little slow, maybe once a day or two.

    As soon as I feel the phone getting slow. I rarely ever get a FC, so as soon as I get one I will also do a power cycle.

    i turn mine off once every few weeks. It usually ends up completely freezing, and i have no choice but to take the battery out to reset it. Annoying.

    lately I have been haveing to do it atleast 1 or twice every 2 days, the latest round of updates from handcent, dolphine, and a couple other essential programs have caused this but after a battery pull all is well again till the next update that is.

    I turn it off and remove the battery whenever it starts acting glitchy... it varies, sometimes I might do it a few days in a row, sometimes I might go a week or two without any problems.

    You guys must not being doing anything cool to your phone then. *yawn*

    If you ain't pulling the battery once-in-awhile, you ain't trying to break it! :D :D :D (End users!) :p

    Every day after a full charge, it gets turned off for 15-20 mins.

    some of us end users rely on the droid to keep us up to date on our work. Droid does tell me about my servers, and if I let a server stay down I stop gettin the pay check.

    So, it would be stupid of me to screw with my phone too much.

    So call me an end user if you like, I have to err on the side of relibility here.

    I perform a soft boot about once every 2 weeks or when it begins to slow down a lot, whichever comes first.

    I run home++ and I believe that effects my phone's "glitchiness" if you will. I have to reset/battery pull every few days. I may go a week without a reset, then have to battery pull a couple days in a row. The replacement home screen is WELL worth it though.

    Never. Unless there are issues happening with the phone. Then it just gets rebooted.

    Same here. I was listening to the music player yesterday and the music just stopped. The phone had rebooted. Today I wake up to a dead battery. Home++ like to FC every once and a while too.

    Is turning the phone off then on the same as pulling the battery? If not, is there an app for simulating a battery pull? I'd rather not wear out the battery contacts and door...

    How long are you planning to keep this phone??? It'll take YEARS before you wear it out.
