If you're phone's too hot try dimming your screens brightness. That might help who knows. Anyway, I wish someone who's capable would figure out the SIMtuation :)cool:) i know, Both of these phones suck lol I just wanna resell them for more $$$$. There's no way i would give up my Dinc for these pieces of garbage. I guess they're cool if you're on att or tmobile but if you're on verizon ughh why would you want this. I understand everyones argument about the keyboard blah blah blah, but if you use the swiftkey keyboard OMG you'll never want a physical keyboard again I promise u that. With that said HURRY UP AND FIND A SOLUTION!!! lol I need to get at least $600 for my D2G and my Droid Pro on ebay.......

Why dont anybody go for the milestone 2 instead ? this D2G and MS 2 have the same CPU, they just over clock the D2G to 1.2. So what's the big deal to have more extra 0.2 Ghz when having a headache to unlock it and now, heat problem ? The only thing i love the D2G is the white color. Btw some D2G user told me that the MS 2 is faster than the D2G coz most the time D2G just runs at 300 Mhz speed it would chage to 1.2 when it needed but It would take a little time to change and there would be a delay.

i give up

i checked out the desire z and it's in fact better than the d2g in terms of keyboard. the heating issues with the d2g and the battery life is shorter than the desire z. plus it is locked against all USA gsm networks. With all those reasons, I have given up on the D2G and decided to go with the desire z. if you're stuck on this phone and are trying to get it for at&t or t-mobile think about the desire z. good luck.

+1 !!! That is the current solution my friends. Some of you are still within your return period, I highly recommend it. The HEATING issues are enough for me! I've done my research and motorola tried but they don't know the cause.

Long story short. Wirefly is exchanging it for a DX which will be here tomorrow(free over night) and my account will be credited the difference. I got to say if your gonna sign on the dotted line..Wirefly is the way to go.

Anyway guys I wish you all luck..it was nice to me you. :cool:

    That's too bad that a certain group decided to be greedy on this. I can understand charging that much if there was a guarantee of it working, but the secret should have been released for free with a disclaimer that they weren't responsible if you messed up your phone. I would even be happy to pay the $3 that they charge for their app in order to get access to the necessary files (which I find kind of off-putting, as well, since it kind of forces a donation, in a way).

    Hopefully we'll see a free leak at some point, so those that are willing to take the risks themselves are free to do so.
