jnt - thank you for your original post. Don't be discouraged by the handful of people who have to make a personal comment much of the time. The majority of people on this forum are looking for help, a place to vent or offer assistance.
FYI - My phone will hang up when I am using the speakerphone and not touching the screen. This happens much more than the occasional dropped call.
Thank you. Have been finding the droid great for email but pretty much useless as a phone due to the constant hangups. Will try this. But it's a lot of tapping and swiping if you need to use the phone in the car.
