Gettign fed up with this phone!

9: Established

Right...where do i start.......

1) making a call usualy see's the call being cut off after about 1 minute...calling back directly after this is fine...no cut off's.

2) internet.......i very often cant get on the internet...i have only the arrow pointing up on my signal bar ( indicating its sending info, not receiving ) most of the time i have to re-start myphone...this solves it...but takes ages to find a signal!...even though im in a full strength signal area!....

3) lately, the android market has been playing up...error 101....no reason why...just doesnt let me do anything...cant download apps, cant update....seems to be once a week i get this...i have to clear EVERYTHING...all data , cache etc...then it might work.....then a few hours later i get a notification saying i have updates for my apps...then, and only then, can i update them, and download new apps...

4) seem to loose my bookmarks from the widget i have on one of my home screens...jut get the 'internet globe' icon...the rest have gone...i have to delete that widget, and replace it again before i can see my bookmarks...

 

Lovely phone, but getting rather peeved off with all the bugs in it...starting to think its not fir for purpouse!!!!

Hi ZoeandKev

 

Thanks for your posts. I’m sorry to hear about the issues you have been experiencing with this. I appreciate how frustrating this must be for you.

 

Unfortunately from time to time, technology doesn’t always work 100%. We’re actually quite lucky that a simple factory reset resolves many issues on phones. Most electronic products would need to be immediately sent away for repair if faults develop. That’s one great things about modern phones. I know its very inconvenient for you to have to do but if it resolves your issue I personally think its worth it. Smiley Happy

 

Please let me know how you get on and we’ll be happy to help you further.

 

Thanks

 

Wayne
