    I'm wondering if I should return this one.
    Also thinking about using the BOGO offer for my two roommates, but not if these things aren't resolved...

    1. Proximity sensor. Doesn't seem to work. On my old Droids, if I held the phone to my face, the screen would turn off. Not on this one. I'm pressing buttons all over the place with my face. Is it just my phone?

    2. Auto Rotate... does this thing auto rotate with the keyboard closed? Can't get that to work.

    3. Car dock... Having problems with it charging... also it doesn't seen to want to rotate, and intermittently starts the dock... also, I find it annoying to have to use the dock in landscape, as it's much easier to use the dock in portrait...

    4. Sometimes the launcher is slow... I have to press the buttons more than once with it.

    5. And do you like the sound quality?

    Please let me know if these are Droid 3 issues, or just my phone problem...

    1. works perfect for me

    2. auto rotate works flawlessly for me

    3. I dont have a car dock (sorry)

    4. My launcher (stock) is nice and snappy-very happy with it.

    5. I am happy with the sound quality--good enough for me.

    Have you rebooted your phone recently?

    Return it, since you should not be having the issues. Might want to try a factory reset first, since you would be starting fresh with a new device- if you get another D3, of course.

    The sound quality is great and no sound issues like the DX2 has. D3 is a solid device.

    if you have a screen cover on your phone, that might mess with the proximity sensor, assuming it covers the entire front of the phone. (mine only covers the screen itself and ive had no issues with the proximity feature)

    also the home screens will not auto rotate to landscape mode unless the keyboard is opened, at least on my device, but most other menus/programs auto rotate just fine with the keyboard closed.

    those are the only issues of yours i can throw my 2 cents in on.
