All was well until I updated to Gingerbread. Now my phone either turns itself off and restarts or goes into a black sceen which can only be recovered by removing the battery or while in the middle of a conversation I will get the Verizon startup jingle playing in my ear ....I never lose the call but I can no longer hear the other person though they can hear me saying "Hello? Hello? Hello?".....Grrrrr Verizon/Samsung
And I'm almost positive that Verizon's solution will be to reset the phone to the factory settings, which quite honestly is a pain and instead up feeling like you have upgraded, you feel that you've taken a step backwards....losing information and having to reinstall your apps.....Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I love being a beta tester!!!!
I had the exact same problem. I did a hard reset, and nothing. I got a replacement in the mail today, and I'm having the exact same issue again! I'm so frustrated.
Did you install any Market apps on the replacement phone ?
Very well could be an incompatability with an app and GB..android 2.3.
If yes, try starting the phone in 'safe' mode and see if it works OK
or uninstall all market app and use phone for a couple days to see
if it now works OK.
Then reinstall one app at a time, use phone awhile before installing next app.
When phone breaks, thats the offending app.
??? I don't have a replacement phone??? I updated my original phone via the Verizon network to Gingerbread.....afterwards I installed one app from the marketplace.....the marketplace vets the apps depending on your version of the operating system.
My Fascinate upgraded to Gingerbread this afternoon and since then it has been restarting itself every 3 minutes!! I have not installed any new apps since it upgraded. My boyfriend is also having the same problem since he upgraded this afternoon! This is ridiculous! Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated..
