It's very common, for Android users to come across problems on their new phones. Everyone comes across problems on all types of platforms. In this thread, I'm going to try to help you troubleshoot your Android device so that you can yourself try to fix your phone so that the last step you take is to ask for a refurbished one.
In this thread I will list a few things that I have heard people have problems with, or, have personally come to me about. I also want this thread to serve as a Hub for errors that we, the Android/Verizon community found or can find. That way, we can put all solutions to errors that we have found here so that others may benefit from it.
***Please note that solutions I offer here may or maynot be parallel to that of HTC's, Google's or Motorola's. At the time of this writing, I don't have access to any of the sites for the companies listed above, so I apologize if it seems as if I'm trying to "bite off" one of them. These are mere solutions from a guy who wants to help others. Also, if you use one of the solutions and it doesn't end up well...being the solution please don't blame me. You use these solutions at your own digression and I don't want any "MIKE YOU MOUTH BREATHING HELMET WEARING NERD YOU LIED" threads.***
Lets get started!
I have found that my phone has been operating slowly! I'm not sure why but it's not as responsive as it was when I first recieve it. How can I fix it?
I have recieved the error "process.android.______ has stopped!" And it asks me to either force close or wait. Why is this and how do I stop it from happeneing again?
The reason why this is occuring is because there is one process that is interfereing with the said process you've received an error. I cannot say the reason as to why, seeing as how most every process error occurs for different reasons. However, it most likely has to deal with another app messing with another process.
http://developer.android.com/reference/packages.html is a good place to start if you are looking for a specific process that is coming up with problems.
My phone's buttons aren't working correctly, and they are not responding. Is there anything I can do to remedy this?
Everything has stopped all of a sudden. My phone is completely frozen and I can't get it to respond.
IF YOU DO HAVE A TROUBLESHOOT ERROR/PROBLEM AND FOUND A SOLUTION, PLEASE PM ME SO THAT I MAY BE ABLE TO ADD IT TO THIS THREAD (If popularity allows me to do so -- and if mods are nice enough to edit it for me )
My text messaging button on my phone turned into a back button that a person has on the computer. When I wanted to text someone it would show me the last app I was not on not my messaging screen. The battery pull with reboot fixed it thanks.
No problem! Glad I could help, I just hope other people find this as useful as well.
