Stuck on Blur screen-not booting

Just this last week my Devour decided it would stick on the Moto blur screen, the screen that comes up when you first turn on the phone. Blur just keeps blinking and it never stops. I have tried removing the battery several times, removing the memory card, everything I can think of. Each time I turn it on it sticks again and this will go on as long as I have let it. I know it is taking a charge because twice I managed to see the charging screen just before it happened. It seems to not be booting the Moto Blur platform. Anyone else experience this and manage to fix it? I will go to the Verizon store tomorrow (finally) and I hope to resolve this.

How to save battery life on Android phones!! Must have app.

Download APNdroid from the market.

Android: When you're asleep, at an event, or otherwise indisposed, you don't need your battery-draining data connection, but you might still want to take phone calls. Free Android app APNdroid can selectively turn off your data access while allowing calls.

The app's design is a clever one, as activating APNdroid from its app button simply activates the on/off switch for GPRS, EDGE, and 3G networks, allowing you to use the APNdroid icon as a kind of widget on your Android screens. You obviously won't be able to surf the web or sync Google services while your data services are off, or send MMS messages. You will, however, have basic phone functionality, and your battery will probably live a bit longer...

New Devour

Has anyone noticed on the New Motorola Devour (A555 aka. lil droid) that the phone lists itself as a 'Calgary' in the software?
Going into the 'Google talk menu', selecting 'next', and the very next screen the heading is 'Setting up your Calgary'. Phonearena listed from their sources about a year ago that a Motorola Calgary was expected for Verizon. The original keypad looked more like a flattened Droid keypad. Apparently this may have been the Calgary early on. There is no denying that it does not say 'Setting up your Devour' The one I have here, does not.

I wonder if voice dial over bluetooth is nerfed on this one too.

I wonder if voice dial over bluetooth is nerfed on this one too.
Like it is on the NExus One and Motorola DROID.
I hope some time soon that it gets fixed in a firmware update.

Its not like this ability hasnt been around for years, or that is STATE LAW in many states.

I like these phones, I just dont like that
the issue is still happening but they keep pumping out more phones with Android on them.

Moto Devour, Moto Droid, and HTC Droid Eris!

I was just wondering which phone everyone prefers. I want the Eris but it is slow. I want the Droid but the keyboard and it only has 3 screens. I also want the Devour, but it only has a 3.0 megapixel camera and I don't know about the screens. I love HTC widgets and it is getting an update to 2.0 or 2.1 soon.

Are they considering this a 3G Smartphone or a 3G Multimedia phone?

My sister wants this, and if it's considered a 3G smartphone she can forget it. I'm not paying the $29.99 plan lol. The $9.99 plan I don't mind.
