Gallery scroll crash

As I scroll through my pic gallery (vertical tile layout), after a few swipes, the screen goes black and goes back to the gallery menu.

When I do the same but using the horizontal view, no problem.

Thoughts? Anyone else experience this?

Launcher Pro crashes my Droid X

I installed Launcher Pro, but it only runs for about 10 minutes before my phone freezes and I have to do a battery pull. Do I have something set wrong?

This probably isn't an X specific question, but does anyone know of a way to take screenshots on the phone like you can on iPhones/iPod Touches? Is there anything built into the phone to allow you to do this (like the iPhones two button combo thing) or an app? How would an app work for this too? Thank you for any help.

Droid X Apps & Holster


I was hoping I could get some comments and thoughts. I just ordered my Droid X and should have it in about 2 wks. I know there are hundreds/thousands of apps. I was wondering if others could offer suggestions on the MUST HAVE apps. Also, how to get those or any apps. I believe it's from the Android Market. However, I don't know how to get to it or view what's available. Espically the free apps. Is it an app pre-installed or a website you access?

My other question is about protecting the phone. Does anyone use the holster that Verizon sells? Any comments or opinions good or bad. I have been going back and forth on whether to get the Carbon Fiber case (no belt clip) and carry in my pocket. Or go with the holster and have ...

Android 2.2 When?????

Is everyone still waiting for the 2.2 software??? I just came out of a verizon store and they told me it will be sent to my phone by 9/3, do we believe him???? I also went to the same store in August and a girl told me by the 16th (of August) which never happened. But he assures me that they got an email that the phones are in the process of being updated and will be done by 9/3. Any thoughts??????

Ringtone mixups

I have been having trouble with it recognizing the correct ringtone. It's always mixing up everyone's ringtones. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there something I can do to fix it? Would you recommend a ringtone app instead?

Steppin' Up!!

Morning fellow forum users,

I've stepped up (from a BB 9550 to the "DROID X")and I'm loving every "step". Goodbye RIM, you've just got "TORCHED". Ok ok, enough with the dry humor. I'm needing a lil help with this unit. I'm trying to figure out how to make my phone vibrate and play the tone when I recieve an alert (sms, mms & email). I'm sure you're well aware that there wasn't much in the box. Lol. So any advice, tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated. I'll continue to read on to learn more about the device.

Thanks and have a super day,

Text & Font Size Adjustability

Looking for help from experienced Droid users:

I've been looking at a couple Droids (droid 2 & X), since I have an upgrade available soon, and was wondering how adjustable the fonts/text items are (as far as size goes) on the Droid X.

I have a visual impairment and always look for a phone that at least lets me adjust the font size of texts & emails. Of course menus matter too, but it's the messaging that matters most to me.

Having not owned an Android phone, I'm assuming that there's at least some adjustability native to the OS. I'm also hopeful that whatever isn't available natively can be handled with an app.

Can someone help me get a clue regarding this area of functionality?

Thanks in advance!

(I'm also posting this sa...

Got the Droid X... have a few questions

I got the Droid X last week, and my wife got the HTC Incredible. Both are good phones, but in all honesty, the Incredible seems faster, smoother, and the overall interface seems a bit more user-friendly. I was under the impression that the X was supposed to be the best phone Verizon has ever unleashed. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. However, I don't understand why such a powerful phone is that "jittery" when swiping from one screen to another. Keep in mind, I just switched over from an iPhone 3GS.

Does anyone know of a way to make it less "jittery"? Also, when it updates to Android 2.2, what all is expected to change?

Thanks in advance.

VIDEO: My Thoughts on the Seidio Innocase Surface for Droid X

Hello All,

Before I get my Droid X I used to be a BlackBerry user, and I created several popular videos giving my thoughts on accessories (as well as tips and tricks; I created the "Paper Strip Method" video for cleaning the trackball). I do this so that people can make informed and insightful buying decisions.

Well, I'm back now with my new phone - the Motorola Droid X - and have just completed a video taking a look at the Seidio Innocase Surface. You can check it out a the link below. Expect more videos in the future! »

Screen & Case

Hi Everyone,
After reading almost every post in this forum I think my decision is made on the X. I do have some basic questions I am hoping other will offer comments and opinions on.

My first reaction when seeing the phone was. It's like carrying my laptop around. That based on the size of the device. I fully understand why the big screen is an advantage and more a pro than a con. But has anyone with the phone said. This is crazy and too big in comparison to others like Droid2 or Incredible? For example I am coming from a Dare.

My next question is about carrying the phone. At the risk of sounding like a total nerd. I currently carry my Dare on my belt. Yes, I know they have belt cases & holsters for the X. But is it really possib...

FACEBOOK question

Confused by a recent FACEBOOK update made available on my DROID X (through market). Currently, I am running Facebook version 138; the update say Facebook FOR ANDROID 1.3.2; is this the appropriate update/replacement?...what is throwing me off is the name (--FOR ANDROID) and the version number (does 1.3.2 really replace 138?).

How much is the X if you sign up for one year contract

I am due for my "new every two." Do I get that discount if I only sign up for a one year contract? I have had different verizionwireless reps tell me different things. One person told me I could get the phone for 169.99 with my discount. Another told me it would be 269.99 with no discount.

Has any only signed up for one year? Any insight on this would be helpful. Thanks!

Headphone Jack

I have the original Droid and it has a problem in the headphone jack. If the cord moves much at all, the phone thinks the headphones have been unplugged which results in either the external speaker turning on or my music being paused. I did an exchange on the phone because the original was doing this and the replacement does the same thing. Several other people I know have the same problem. What I am wondering is if anyone with the Droid X is having this type of problem?

Droid X Questions

Hey all. Been poking around the forums for awhile now and feel as though I've finally made my decision on a phone but wanted to get people's thoughts.

I have the Voyager now (Don't ask me why). Anyhoo I love the touch screen option as I've varied opinions on it. Is it hard to type on this phone? Also I hear the battery isn't that great on it....Can I get thoughts on that as well

Why is something so simple not on our X?

How can it be that on such a high-end phone there is no visual indicator when the battery is charged? It blows my mind that a feature so basic is not on this phone. Even the first droid and the incredible have it,not to mention every phone i can think of. Crazy

Motorola webchat phone support? what a joke !!

So, i went to Motorola's website to see if i could lodge a complaint about the design flaws/software issues that i have experienced (as well as a few of you) with the Droid X. i logged on to the tech support web-chat application, and below is the transcript of the discussion. I can't believe that they not only deflected answering the questions, but they were completely dismissive !!

i guess the customer is never "right" !!

i post this transcript for you to laugh, and possibly embarrass Motorola's tech support management into addressing very real flaws with the phone.

Gripe along with me, and maybe they'll actually fix these and your issues (post them)in the near future !!

Reymer: Hi, my name is Reymer. How may I help you?
