There is a software update out, Finally! But I am still having poroblems with the phone shutting off for no reason, just like you.
I am about ready to trade it in for something different.
I am a very patient person but this phone is ridiculous. Again I have a voicemail on my phone but never got a call. I've just about had it with not getting important text messages from friends and family. My screen turns black and I can't pick up calls when it rings. I can't open apps at times. The phone shuts off and on on its own. My job requires I have a reliable phone but this honestly is the worst phone I've had.
I have complained about this for the past 8 months to the store (about 6 times) and multiple phone calls to support. Everyone just keeps leading me on like they have the solution (ie just change out the sim card) and they even sent me another LG Revolution and things just got even worse. Its sad that I had faith in the salesman who recommended this phone over others I was interested in. I have friends with other companies paying half the price I pay for their phone and services. I just really wish there were recalls on such products and sales people would be truthful when selling faulty devices. They wouldn't want the same done to them. This is very sad.
Oh boy,,,what am i in for? I just switched from a Stratosphere to an old Revolution because the Strato wouldn't turn on. Just says Samsung.. The Revolution is over 2 years old and only replaced because someone wanted a Galaxy.
Maybe I'll be lucky and it will continue to work okay for txt and phone. Other person complained because it froze up playing all the stupid games.
