For the last couple of weeks my Android has been shutting down and rebooting on its own, and it has also been freezing when I try to access the internet or even simply to go to my home screen. There have been instances where it has froze and has not rebooted for nearly 30 minutes, went to a Verizon store last week and they told me to reprogram the phone using the factor data reset option in the privacy settings. I tried this last night and the phone seemed to be fine but it was back to square one today as the phone froze on me for a good half hour. Can anyone give any advice as to what I should do?
Do you install any application shortly before the problem began occurring?
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
Some apps make your phone act up... unfortunately my phone has this problem as well but its def from a game app that I downloaded and because I love the game so much I just deal with the problem.
But when you do download an app, you should def "read" what you are allowing that app to do. Most apps have access to volume controls and other settings as well. Why apps can do this I dont know but apps do tend to make your phone act up.
Hope this some what clarifies it better for you.
I have loaded nothing, I can not even get ahold of verizon on this phone, once I go past 611, my keypad doesn't work at all VERIZON, please get in touch with me please. I also would like a number I can reach someone in technical support from my home phone!. There is no phone # on the website either?
I used my Droid X for two years till i got my R. Maxx.. and went through 3 OS updates and A few Maintenance updates and never had that many issues. Or like the one described here. Apps can have an effect on how the Device operates so you might try Running it in Safe Mode or as you done. Try running a F.D.R..
Here is How to Run your Droid X in Safe Mode:
Safe Mode temporarily disables all applications that have been installed via the Android Market. Performing this troubleshooting step is necessary to determine whether a 3rd party application is the cause of an Operating System / Application issue. Safe Mode should always be performed prior to a hard (factory) reset.
