    Help Always vibrates

    My wife's Droid Charge always vibrates, even with every switch we could find set to off. Even disabled vibrate on emergency texts. The problem seems most noticeable on texts from Twitter; but we can't find any switch to turn that off. What might we be overlooking? Thanks, and happy new year.

    Help Wifi status shows "Error"

    When I attempt to turn on wifi, it simply says "Error" under the words on the button. Repeatedly tapping it does.. well, nothing. Occasionally when I tap the wi-fi button it will freeze, crash, and restart the phone. I'm in Test Mode with no sim, if that has anything to do with it.

    Help Not receiving group texts from iPhones

    My Charge has not been receiving group texts from iPhones for the past few months and it's starting to be a real issue as everyone I work with has an iPhone. Has anyone else had the same issue? I tried GoSMS Pro, but that wouldn't even open. Verizon's message app didn't seem to fix it either.
