    What is going on with Droid. My X hasn't been the same since I did the last update, I think it was Gingerbread? Pandora is useless, apps force close, screen grays out and the phone randomly decided to reboot. This phone was pretty reliable and I was somewhat satisfied with it before, but its getting to where I dont even use my favorite apps anymore because its too much trouble to get them working...have to force close, reboot etc... and sometimes they still dont work. What gives Droid? Anyone else frustrated with new problems?

    Have you taken it in to see if there is an issue with your device? :thinking:

    Well, no. I guess there could be something but would be a strange coincidence that it started right after an upgrade. Guess it wouldnt hurt to let them check it.

    I have heard from quite a few people that the GB updated to the Droid X completely made it unusable. They all agree that it was an awesome phone before said update. No idea what the fix is though. I'd post in the Droid X forum. I'm sure there's someone there who can help you.

    I have cleared the cache and I was forced to do a factory reset weeks back when it got stuck in a boot up loop. That got the phone back up and running, but its still real buggy? Is there a way to downgrade or go back to the previous OS?

    I switched from a pc to mac a few years ago and have never been happier. Wish I had done it sooner. I know there is no perfect phone, but apple doesn't release updates with problems like this.

    Cleared cache again last night and still having issues with Pandora hanging up. Also noticed my bluetooth not syncing this morning. I didn't pull the battery after clearing cache last night. May try that too. Guess I need to run by Verizon and see if they have any suggestions or news about a fix.

    try uninstalling Pandora?
  15. I tried keeping my Droid X stock for as long as possible but it became so laggy and unstable after the OTA Gingerbread update that I wanted to throw it off the top of a building most days.
    I finally decided to try rooting and I also installed the OMFBG Rom. Now my phone is stable, looks cool and is extremely fast, I highly recommend rooting your phone to get it working right.:cool:
