Is not apps. Is the recent upgrade from FROYO to GINGERBREAD Software. Some phones like mine worked fine and some, like my wife, they turn off aroun 3 to 6 times a day or more. Phone freezes, slow, camera dont work, USB errors, etc. They send a different upgrade to my wife from customer support to her text and still was doing the same, like send 1 text and u receive like 3 or 4. So, no, is not app issues and verizon knows it.
My wife friend found a way to restore back to Froyo and her phone is working great and the same way she had it before the update. My only complain with mine is that before u can click on the photo gallery while in cam mode and slide or see all the photos and now with update you can only see ur last picture taken. They did this software update for the people that rooted their phones and were using it to tether their laptops, psp, etc without having to make a contract and pay extra for a little hotspot box to tether up to 5 devices at one. If u pay for unlimited data they should let you tether if ur phone has that feature. They dont get that no matter what update in securities, they will always find a way to pass thru the securities and we are the ones paying for updates like this one...
Re: Antonino VZW, I have tried all the troubleshooting "tricks" too many times to justify. In other words, the hoops I have gone through with this phone are redundant and ridiculous.
h2oskiman, congratulations on your success. But, this opens a big can of worms. I sit on the side of those that think that apps create most of the conflicts and bugs.
HOWEVER, what does it say about the software on a device that one app could (supposedly) do what this one did to yours?
What does this say to the open, unregulated market that allows such apps?
True, testing and approving apps is logistically impossible for the OEMs. But something has to be done.
Toorbo, I personally witnessed apps that ran fine on Froyo crash on GB. That goes back to the need for an app testing system.
Contradicting myself, the software on this phone, past and present has always been buggy, regardless of apps. Blame cannot be put on apps when the stock UI, camera, display, etc. have issues.
So yes, apps do cause issues without a doubt. But combine questionable apps with buggy software and you get this phone.
Exactly - I feel your pain. I've had this phone completely factory reset without ANY apps installed other than what VZW forces upon us and the problems are there, which to me indicates that the problem is NOT with any apps you put on the phone yourself. It says to me that Moto and Verizon have a user interface on the DX that is not stable, atleast not as stable as it was when Froyo was on the phones. The GB update that Moto kicked out is so buggy that they've probably given up and resigned to having users just deal with it until they get frustrated enough to kick more money to Verizon for a different phone.
Atleast now VZW is giving me the opportunity to do an upgrade at the discounted cost. I have started thinking of going back to an iPhone just cause i have already used one, it was stable for me in the past, but what keeps me from doing that is that I do like Android alot better being that it lets me do more things than what Apple will limit me to because of the Steve Jobs mantra. Guess I'm just torn and will have to make up my mind, but atleast the discounted upgrade is atleast there for me now, so I have an option.
