    killed my first Droid! !!!!

    So my droid kept restarting on me yesterday then last night got stuck on the splash screen. The people at vzw were amazed I crashed one in under 24 hours so I will see how this one does but I love the phone so far

    So do you guys think the OS got corrupted? Seems odd.

    The OS is Linux is it not.

    Yeah I believe the OS is Linux based. From what I have read seems to be a fault video card. Don't think it has anything to do with the OS

    Video seems to be the cause, interesting. So are there common things to look out for that you know of or just simply having a lot of screen freezes?

    It kept crashing all day long finally I got tired of it when it froze up for like 10 minutes during a phone call. When to VZW and exchanged and all seems fine for now.

    Thanks for the update. Hope it's not too common. Have you heard about very many problems with the Droid J?

    From what I have read thus far not too many. Seems that a few others were also having the reboot and freezing issues that I had. But per usual VZW was very cool and just exchanged it without a hassle. Also the problem I was having with IMAP is gone with the exchanged device. Being a BB user most of my life I have to say that I quite pleased with this device. Much more than I anticipated.

    Interesting. Sure sounds like you picked up a bad one. I'm glad you got the IMAP issue fixed. I was searching for a fix for you & in my search results were posts from you & Cat! LOL
