Droid phones are nothing but problems

I have a Droid 2 and my Finace has a Droid 3. The phone that he has is about the 4th phone that Verizon has sent him. So far so good on the one he has now. My Droid 2 has been nothing but problems since the day I got it. It powers down by itself, sometimes in the middle of a phone conversation. I don't get most of my phone calls. People have to text me to ask me to call them. The majority of the time I have to resend my text messages because they won't go through the first time. And I keep having to clear the data on my text messaging or it freezes up while i'm trying to text someone. Now all of a sudden in the last couple of weeks my phone freezes up completely. I really don't know what to do with this 600.00 phone that I paid full price for and i've only had it a little over a year. I've never dropped it, nor gotten it wet or anything. Every Droid that we've had doesn't work very well at all

Where do I begin? I have a Droid X and I hear you. You haven't had the pleasure of receiving the same text (that a person sent you ONCE) over and again, sometimes for hours?

Or, people that can't hear you on their end when you call them?

Seriously, there are many "tips" some will offer, but no real answer.

First off, how many apps have you downloaded? Have you tried a factory software reset?

Do a Search for instructions if you haven't and/or don't know how and afterwards, do not install any apps the first day and see if that helps.

I have jumped through hoops troubleshooting my phone and have decided it is what it is until my upgrade date arrives.

Good luck and hang in there.
