Unhappy Resets and Freezes

Please Login to Remove!

Hey All

Just got my Cruve yesterday, was really pleased with it until....today.

I only made a couple of calls yesterday and didn't have any problems but today has been a nightmare. At least 6 times in the middle of phone calls, the Curve would display a red light and black screen, then the white screen would appear with the egg timer for at least 2 minutes, then show the home screen with a message about security or something.

I've done some extensive searching this forum today and discovered that the best option is to return the phone to the place where I got it and get a new replacement.

Out of all the people that have done that, have they continued to experience the same problem?

A lot of people have said that it's no uncommon amongst old handsets but surely as I only got mine yesterday, this can't be the case?

I don't have any 3rd party apps installed. Maybe I should also mention that I'm with O2 in the UK.

Any advice, comments are/is welcome.

Thanks.

try wiping your device and re-installing the os.. if that didn't help, then you might consider exchanging it.

I exchanged it today.

Made 6 calls so far, varying in length, a couple were fairly long. Seems okay so far - touch wood.
