I am on my third droid now. They freeze up when you txt. Verizion knows of this issue and say to shut off services this phone comes with to fix the problem. They seam to work for a few days then the only way to fix it is a factory reset and I loose all my apps and time reloading them. My opion is the phone should work free of problmes or we (droid 2 owners) should be given new phones that work and droid 2 does not work !!!
This is a post I made about the freezing issue with regard to the Droid 2 back in January. I used to have the same problem. I've never had to do a factory reset. I'm just copying & pasting my old post here:
I used to have the same problem. Here's the fix. When that happens you need to do a few things. No factory reset is ever required either. I never had to do one.
I hope this helps!
My point is. they sell me a phone and say wait these parts of the phone dont work and we know it but were not gonna do anything about it. HAHAHA..they should say wait those phones are junk here is a phone of the same value or better that does work..
Try the fix that Mama2KBR has above...clearing the cache &/or data only lasts 4-6 weeks so that is NOT a fix. I kept track of my problems on the Droid 2 since the software update sept 2011 and after MUCH pushing they sent me a Droid 3 last week - absolutely FREE. The Verizon guy said they have not had problems with the Droid 3 phone - I hope he is correct!
Good luck! VERIZON OWES ALL DROID 2 OWNERS A PERMANENT FIX OR A NEW MODEL PHONE!
My upgrade will be coming soon. Not sure as to which phone I'll be getting though when I do upgrade. Love my Droid 2. It has to be one with a physical keyboard though. I text way too much and abhor the whole "fully touchscreen" phone thing. That's just a personal preference though.
