Default My 8900 is possessed

Please Login to Remove!

I tried to get UMA working, it would not connect and got stuck, so I did a battery pull.. and that's when It got possessed... At first it would boot up and get stuck on the home screen, nothing would work, can't go to e-mails or menus. Did a battery pull, it came back and this time it immediately went to calendar and got stuck in this screen. During this period I got a Free Text Message from T-Mobile telling me a new tower was set up near my home..

Two battery pulls later, finally it started responding, but when I put it down I noticed it started deleting my e-mails. (Not space issue/auto delete) it was actually as if someone was hitting delete, and confirming the delete.. One by one, like one e-mail every 2-3 seconds. (I got it on my camera). It finally stopped, but this time I saw that it hit reply and was replying an e-mail (not typing anything.. of course) and finally I closed it and now it is on home screen sitting on my table.

I found that my 8900 acted strange if I tried to reboot with the SD card install. So, I would do reboots without the card and then install it.

Since upgrading to the latest OS I do not seem to have that problem any longer....

Yeah. If you have problems, usually upgrading the OS fixes the problem.

I wonder if this was something like a side effect of the BIS update everyone was talking about...
