At least on the Eris, if i don't kill my browser after every 30 minute session, performance goes to ****.

My two dissapointments with the droid are as follows:

1 You have to kill apps frequently because they dont really close when you leave them.
2 Choppy scrolling, even on the home menu, with more than a few icons displayed.

Other than that, I LOVE this thing more every day.
Can't wait for some killer root apps to come out.

Have you updated to Android 2.0.1 yet/ It makes a bif improvment for the phones performance.

Strange thing happend today. It looks like my DROID deleted all my text messages. Anyone know if this is normal if the threads become to long and if you can get them back?

From what I've been reading, you don't really need to kill the apps anymore because of how the droid handles its memory. I never kill anything, I've uninstalled Advanced task killer. My battery life is the same as it was when I did kill everything. The new update got rid of the choppiness for me (except for the browser).

Phone is up to date.
I just got it last weekend.

I'll try it without task killer, but I noticed if I have more than 6-ish icons on each home display it will lag a bit and killing apps seems to help.

So, has anyone modded his Droid to have the HTC Sense interface yet?

There have been some people who got a DROID in the week the update was being pushed and got a phone without it. I would check the firmware just to be sure.

I dont notice any lag but I do only have the bare minimum on the three screens.

flashed to 2.0.1 today and it solved my GPS issues! Plus everything seems to run a lot smoother, not sure why I didn't do this sooner

Glad to hear it. The 2.0.1 firmware is great.

Today I received an email informing me that my second bill from verizon was for 126.00$... I about flipped out on my sales rep., on my online account it said I had the limit of 250 and I used about 400 total, so I was over. My rep tried to say I had racked up 50$ in overage charges because I "didn't have a text message plan set up". Which was completely wrong, I did have one and it was 250 messages... He was pretty cool about the situation - he called verizon and had them credit me 40$ and upgraded me to the 500 message plan for the 10$. Problem solved and I didn't get that angry, now I kinda know how that one dad in California feels about his son's 22,000$ verizon d/l bill... Also, when I set up my online account they had my billing zip code wrong and I wasn't able to set it up until I called customer service. Which was a bit of an inconvenience.
