Gettign fed up with this phone!

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!!!!

Re: Gettign fed up with this phone!

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. :smileyhappy:

 

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

 

Thanks

 

Wayne
