    Since you just got it yesterday, I take it you're not rooted? Have you tried power cycling the phone to see if that resets anything?

    I see you're running a task killer. Have you killed any running processes with that? Just a word of caution as those types of apps have been known to sometimes wreak havoc w/ phones.

    No, I am not rooted yet. I've use my appkiller a bunch of times, I use it whenever i put my phone to sleep pretty much.
    My mom works at verizon and she doesnt know whats causing it. She suggested that i bring it back, however i really dont think the phones defective.

    Since it is so new, I would probably take it back as well. However, you may want to try getting rid of the task killer first to see if this solves the problem. It sounds like to me that the task killer is killing the launcher program. In your case sounds like the touchwiz launcher. You can probably exclude this from the things being monitored by the task killer.
    I personally don't use a task killer, because I think the phone does a pretty good job of managing things on its on. And there is the task manager program that comes stock on the phone that allows you to see what is running and to delete some things if the phone starts to run slow.

    BTW...Welcome to the forums.

    Ditto I'd get rid of the task killer. That has been a known problem on the Droids causing a multiude of issues. 9 out of 10 who got rid of it fixed there problems.
