| | 8120 Drop Reboot
Please Login to Remove!
Every time I slightly drop my phone in its holster and out, this thing reboots. It annoys me more than anything because I have "hung up" many important calls because of this issue. I've long been a loyal user of the 8100 and that thing has had better days and still managed to survive until it was replaced by its newer cousin, but I am beginning to regret my decision. With my 8100, I could still answer a call after a 5 foot drop without a 20 minute reboot sequence that my 8120 goes through.
I know about the other reboot issue which is from a corrupted file structure in the media card; however, I can trigger the restart just by hitting the phone with my palm. I have successfully triggered a reboot (by hitting) in the conditions of the following: without the SIM card, without a microSD chip, and without the battery hatch HOLDING the battery in place.....yet all these result in a restart.
I am about to call RIM for a warranty repair or a replacement. Am I overreacting? I've searched the forums, but maybe I'm not using the right keywords...is this a common problem? Please help.
