Did a battery pull and all contacts are gone. When going thru old calls in my call log, pressing call brings up all contact numbers for that person...not sure what is going on.
Has the replacement had any issues? Just wierd that both my wife and I are having issues. Maybe an OS issue?
The contacts problem was somewhat resolved with the replacement but i'm on phone #3 as of now...
I also have and issue with the camera. There are isolated occasions when taking a picture where the phone will completely shut off. Pressing any keys does not turn the phone back one. I have to pull the battery.
On the second phone I had downloaded a contacts backup app which jumbled the entire address onto one line. I still have issues such as text chats being duplicated in the message folder as well as random messages only showing up as a "thin line" between other messages. The only way you can see this is if you're scrolling down through the messages and the line turns blue.
Recently I was on the phone win RIM for over 4 hours to try to get these issues resolved. Which led to a wipe and reinstall the OS. So far I haven't had any more issues with the exception of the message showing as a thin line...
