I'm glad your phone is up and running again and the tips here helped. There's many factors that could cause this, but it's mostly the maintenance of the phone, such as closing apps you're no using and downloading safe apps.

My Droid freezes every day. It has done this since I got it "new" under my warranty when the previous TWO phones of the same model did the exact same thing. They all freeze up daily. I usually cannot even answer the phone or make calls. Checking email or using the internet can take in excess of 10 minutes! I'm not exaggerating. This phone is so unresponsive that I am cancelling my Verizon account and moving to a new brand and provider.
I'm sorry your phone is having issues mobilephoneverworks. We can replace the phone if you're still under the 1year warranty or have total equipment coverage and no damage to the phone. Have we filed a trouble-ticket for your issues yet?
