well it's not so much you walk into a store and they swipe your card with square up, that'd be a bit pointless. It's more for you, the consumer who would like to get paid easier than waiting for a check to bounce, or from people who never carry cash but only plastic.

It supports all the major cards, Visa, Master Card, Discover and a few others.

Ummm guys? Bit of help here. Yesterday, my market kept giving me a network error please retry message even though I was connected via APN (browser pages loaded fine). I decided to give the phone a quick restart. Held the power button down and touched shut down. Next thing I see, the phone's restarting O_o

That was yesterday. This morning, I was in my car, and I had the phone on the seat next to me, I just happened to glance at it, and I see the android loading up screen (it had just restarted). Googling the problem didn't give me any solutions but gave me a whole lotta fear instead about faulty handsets and stuff.

Only difference I did was install Dolphin browser HD and try downloading a few youtube videos (which failed for some reason). Youtube videos through the app didn't stream either. Kept giving me the error "Sorry, video cannot be played".

Advice? Are there any apps or settings that are known to cause random restarts?

Thanks

Actually, I noticed that if I walk away from my wifi connection my droid still says I'm connected via the stock settings widge untill I try to load face book or a website. Then it trys to find another wifi to connect to. When it cant it doesn't automatically switch to 3G. I actually have to reboot. Not the same problem your having but a similar kinda glitch. 2.2 will be out soon. Rumor has it is it will unlock a lot memory for use.

You suggest I wait for 2.2? It's not that big of a problem right now. But o m f g. If you read some of the issues droid users have on the motorola website, it's so scary! It's like droid armageddon. I'll wait till 2.2 I guess. I'm sure they'll have stabilizing patches and bugs resolved. Plus this has to be an android issue not moto droid specific as I've read about this rebooting problem across all android devices.

Fingers crossed I guess

Update: Two more random reboots after my last post. I'm slowly getting annoyed. Will use my mental resources and try and root out a problem here. I've got extended warranty for 3 years so I'm in no particular hurry to fight for my rights as a consumer

I'd say first try removing the Dolphin browser, next try doing a factory reset. Are you running stock?

Posting from my droid atm. Yeah man, running stock. Uninstalled dolphin HD, currently on 18 hrs uptime without a reboot. Come on Froyo!

Ps: what made you suggest removing dolphin?

I never liked dolphin.
loved the stock browser as i dont visit a lot of flash sites that require skyfire... was using orb with skyfire until the people at orb who have a "pay for" app found out you could use a mobile browser that did 100 times a better job decided to block access somehow. now no matter WHAT mobile browser i use to try and access my orb account the thing gets stuck in an infinite loading loop and i cant get in. rotted.

as for rooting the thing, i'm still on the fence. a lot of people praise it but from what i've read about froyo, i think froyo will do to the droid what i want to do, increase memory. i dont care for an overclock to be honest so i'm still holding off on rooting.

good luck with the random reboots. i'd seriously do a factory reset as random reboots would REALLY get under my skin. take an app inventory and reset the sucker. only reinstall the important apps.

EDIT. I still like the idea of rooting and will probably do it in the future as i've received a lot of help and advice to do so, I just haven't read enough about rooting... seems like when i search for info on rooting its ALL about overclocking the device. i need to do more research to find out the little things you can do as root user.

Still going strong on that uptime. 19 hrs and counting. I think I'm cool with the factory reset for now. I'm quite positive about Google providing bug and stability fixes on Froyo along with all the tweaks and unlocks. So if my droid doesn't give me further problems I'm good the way it is.

Plus I use Estrongs File Explorer which has a good App backup option.

Next question guys - I added a new contact to my droid, name, phone number etc. Now when I go to compose a new text message and start typing the new contacts name in, it shows everyone else with a name starting with the same letters EXCEPT the new contact. Funny thing is, I've already sent and received messages from the new contact after adding her to my list. But whatever I try, her name doesn't show up in the auto complete drop down list like all the other names do! Even of people who I haven't ever sent or received texts from.

Ideas?
