Default Rebooting while on a call

Please Login to Remove!

I had an interesting thing happen on the phone yesterday. I was on a call using a Jabra Bluetooth headset. The Bluetooth headset battery started to beep, indicating a low battery.

So I found my wired headset, plugged it in to the 2.5mm port on the side of the Pearl. Then I proceeded to hold down the button on the Jabra Bluetooth headset to disconnect from the phone.

All of the above was done while on the call. A few seconds after the Jabra headset disconnects, the phone REBOOTS. The white screen appeared then the tumbling hourglass for the next few minutes.

For those interested I am using V4.2.0.64, and on T-Mobile.

Has this happened to anyone else?

I've had that happen before. It used to happen more often on my 7100t. It seems like I've read about others having that same problem. it's not always with a bluetooth headset either. It just decides it's time for a reboot....rude!

If it gets worse, you can exchange your Pearl on a warranty replacement. Most likely you'll get a "refurbished" phone (usually they put new case on and no scratches).
