Motorola Droid X Problems: Messaging Bug after Froyo Update – Patch Coming

We have some good news for Droid X users now, as Motorola has just confirmed that they are hard at work on a patch to fix up problems which have become apparent for users after updating to Android 2.2 Froyo.

As reported from Phandroid, one of these very problems is located in the messaging app, and specifically, outgoing and incoming messages. Users have complained that messages are not ordered correctly, and some texts are even remaining static when first appearing in the list.

Furthermore, it was only yesterday that we told you about audio problems on the handset, which judging by our feedback, a lot of you seemed to be experiencing. Hopefully this patch update by Motorola will solve these problems too, and also any other bugs that you may have spotted after updating to Froyo.

Let us know your thoughts on this. Have you spotted any new problems on your handset?

Verizon keeps lying to me, too, telling me *my* Droid X is the only one with problems. When I was standing there, returning the first one, the guy next to me was returning his third. I'm about to return my second one. I'm debating going to AT&T, or just trying the HTC Incredible. I'm still in my 30-day window. First phone: Screen went blank the first hour. Second phone (before the complete wipe): Would update some email programs, but not other (same app), weather wouldn't update, news wouldn't update, etc… for four days. Second phone (after the complete wipe and… Read more »

I just got this phone and I loved it at first, but the camera issue and MP3 issue have gotten annoying. I have to reset the phone at least 3 times a day 🙁 Down right annoying.

I was told by Verizon that mine was the only Droid X that is having this issue. Kinda nice to know that mine isn't the only one. Even though I'm on my second one in a week, because I returned the first one after three days of dealing with all these issues….

this is taking way too long to fix. mp3 problem should be quick. 2.1 was perfect. phone is awesome. what a way to screw up all the goodwill you could've had over the Iphone. I even found a typo somewhere (looking for it now to post). One button spells message wrong…."Messsage". I'll post once I find it again

No option to control media volume in settings anymore you could in 2.1. When typing a website address in browser no.com button.

A list of bugs found so far on the official 2.2 Droid X update: – Texts delete but threads don’t. – Missing option to turn off lock screen (was an option in 2.1) – Volume rocker doesn't turn volume to silent, only to vibrate as its lowest setting – Apps force close that did not used to – Haptic feedback is too short in some cases – Sliding between home screens isn’t as smooth as 2.1. Seems to skip a little. – Contact names seem to be picked from linked profiles at random. Doesn’t keep the contact name that is… Read more »

I’ve actually experienced a decrease in fluidity and speed since the update. On top of the same.messaging issues, the lockscreen is extremely slow and choppy (far from an improvement to the previous lockscreen), as well as program freezing. When I tap on, for example, Dialer or Camera, the screen will go black briefly (less than a second) and the proceed back to the homescreen.
