Unhappy Verizon Flip Bugs

Please Login to Remove!

So I just got the Verizon Flipberry yesterday after many uncomplicated years with my 8703e & the problems have begun. Hoping someone can help me out...

1) The clock is crazy buggy. First the alarm didn't go off this morning at the set time. Then when I open the phone, the clock on top of the menu page seems to have "frozen" at the time the phone was last closed (i.e. flipped closed at 12:34 & that was the readout at 7:50 this morning)

2) The phone has reset/reboot more times this morning that the entire time I had the 8703e combined.

Any ideas or answers would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Did the battery pull already & it seems to have stopped the restart, but the clock on the home screen seems to still get frozen.

It seems when the phone is sitting for a while, the phone goes into some sort of sleep mode & then the clock doesn't update & it screws up the whole thing. Has anyone had this problem & if so, how do you stop it???

I have had an 8230 for 6 days now, and have noticed a similar clock oddity on the external clock. or it's just one heck of a coincidence. I have the external clock set to the old "digital" flip-style clock, where the slat flips down to reveal new digits for the new time. I have noticed that quite often when I close the phone, the time advance to the next minute right then (telling me the clock was frozen while I had the phone open and it caught up when I closed it).

I think tonight I will do a controlled experiment to check that out.
