Droids Randomly Deleting All Their Text Messages
Apple has got to love that competition! I think the pain of that alternative phone is hilarious.
This is another report today on the companion site to Consumer Reports
Buncha Peoples' Droids Randomly Deleting All Their Text Messages
from Consumerist by Ben Popken
Maybe they are sentient after all, just like the commercials suggest, and they've decided it's time for you to move on. A slew of Droid owners are reporting that their cellphones will sometimes randomly delete all of their text messages. That's every picture of your baby your wife sent you, every hilarious exchange between you and your best friend, and every must-have address you've got stored as a text message.
Issue 5669, a Google Code forum thread devoted to the subject, has over 337 comments on the topic, and has been starred by over 230 people. Based on the comments, a number of people have had all their texts deleted more than once. No solutions seem to be forthcoming, and the issue has been going on since at least December, 2009.

I don't care what any of them say. You can have my droid when you pry it from my cold dead hands. Even if there were a Verizon iPhone, I wouldn't trade my Droid for it. It has never given me any problems. In the 6 months I've had it, it has frozen a total of three times. Not a bad track record compared to most other smartphones.
And no, it doesn't delete my text messages randomly and never has.
Android has some issues, and it may never be as fluid as Apple's ecosystem (hint: it was never meant to be) but to call it "a world of hurt" is quite ignorant.
what i really like about the my old apple iphone is simple for me to get the turn by turn driveing gps directions when i need that really what i use my phone for the most for anyway.. along with a few pictures here and there of people and places here and there ..then i upload the pictures to my desktop for keeping in files of the pictures i have taken over the year.. ..
