Default huge problem with 7130e

Please Login to Remove!

Here's the deal. I'm on my second 7130e (i bought the first one as soon as they became available, about a week after thanksgiving). The first one, after about a month of use, began to get really wierd on me. It was on christmas eve that i was attempting to text message someone, when the phone suddenly stopped sending and receiving everything. No calls, no text, no internet, no nothing. My phone was showing that i was getting 3 bars of service, yet still nothing happened. it took about 4 hours for the thing to be able to send and recieve, but it came back online. wierd, i thought at the time. it must be some sort of a fluke. fast forward about a month, and it was starting to happen with some regularity. everytime though, i'd just hard reset it and it would start to work again perfectly, untill about the middle of february. it just stopped sending and recieving. nothing worked. i took i called verizon, and we went through all the trouble shooting measures. looked like a broken radio, they said, so they sent me a new one. That's great, i said, and i took the new one, and went back to using it again perfectly. That was untill about 3 hours ago. Around 6 pm today, it went back to the same thing- it won't send or recieve text/calls/data. I'm just about fed up with this thing. At first i thought it was the greatest thing, but after all this, i think i'm switiching to the treo. After googling my problem, i couldn't come up with anything- essentially, i'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if so, is there anything i can do about it without contacting verizon? Help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
nautor

Switching to the Treo will not ease your problems. You'll want to slit your wrists, I promise. I speak from experience.

Realizing I'm asking an obvious question, have you upgraded to the latest OS?

That would be my first stop. I haven't ever heard of your specific issues, even pre-upgrade. But upgrading certainly won't hurt. I would do it ASAP.

have you updated to the latest firmware on verizon's site? does the phone say data connection refused when things stop working? if so update the firmware. you will be much happier.

I have not had your issue.. Of course, I've only had my 7130e for 2 months or so. I also echo what everyone else said, update the firmware, it can't hurt.

Agreed, Treos are the biggest pieces of crap and Belong in Beta...The most unstable devices out there...

First, where do you live? are you located in a valley area? Try Sending your service books from the web client and re regestering Host Routing Table....

no, i'm not in a valley- i'm in boston. it's definately not a service/reception thing, it's clearly a problem with the phone. it's the wierdest thing though, like, it sometimes works, and then it'll stop working for a while. right now, i'm honestly about as disapointed as can be with this thing.
but, jungleland, how would i go about reregistering the host routing table? if you wouldn't mind giving me a step by step it'd be much apreciated.

Nautor,

fellow Bostonian. Had the same problem. go to options, advanced options, host routing table, click on the first option on the menu, select "register now". Worked like a charm for me a few days ago, no issues since.
