Ever since update my phone has issues. How many of you have the same problems??
1. When recieving a call you say "Hello" and the other person cannot hear you, you have to repeat again "Hello", **bleep** me off to have keep repating myself!!
2. Screen capture snaps a picture while accessing messaging
3. Data dropout, no data, no switch to 3g?
4. Poor battery life.
Could we a class action against all of these problems??
Verizon & Samsung dont gave a ****! Look how long the update took to try to fix the problems, another fix ya right!
Defective Phones that Verizon should step up and replace all Samsung Charges!!!!!!!
All of these issues and they are still selling these phones????
I feel bad for anyone buying this phone, hopefully they have read this first!
Your best bet may be to go to a Verizon "company store" and have the Gingerbread 2.3.6 update re-installed into your phone. Sometimes OTA updates don't work properly. Do it again!
I do not think it is the phone as much as it is GB in general. Same thing happened at first with the push of GB to my D2. I cured both the D2 and the DC by rooting them. All those problems went bye-bye.
Samsung Charge (and Droid OS ?) absolutely SUCKS. Verizon Wireless just shipped me a brand new (not refurb) replacement phone and battery:
Bottom line, I need a phone that last all day. Micro PC is a nice add-on.
Shall I give up on droid and go iPhone, or is this just a Samsung H/W issue?
Is it just me or does anyone else think the Droid Charge is a piece of junk. I got this phone last summer and have hated it ever since. I can't wait to get an iPhone.
The Charge is not a perfect device by any means, but it is much better after the Gingerbread update, at least for me. Signal and 4G retention improved. The screen is fantastic and it never drops calls. Right now it may be one of the best 4G phones out there. I wanted to jump on the Nexus but want to see if the next update fixes the signal issue.
Just wondering why you would want to go backwards to an iPhone that has outdated software, much smaller screen and outdated technology. I know most people that get an iPhone probably don't even realize it is not 4G. Just because it is Apple people don't even question that it is a 3G device.
I have not any problems with mine after installed GB (and I even got a CPO charge in Sept).
people keeping forgetting that every phone has it's issues, and most of these issues are usually a hardware defect or personal use (app, not using phone correctly, unrealistic expectations, etc.).
a main reason why folks come on these forums is to complain about their device (I come on here to look for more tips/tricks and help others). and in case you haven't noticed, the Charge forum is a ghost town.
most discussions on other charge forums on the web are about custom ROMs and other tweaks to improve the device, not to complain about it.
keep in mind that the battery life of smartphones is not long, and you'd be lucky if you could get a whole day (24 hours) in between charges. I once got 70 hours, but that's also b/c I know how to use my device (and when not to use it)
