Default 7130c Issue

Please Login to Remove!

I have been experiencing an issue with my 7130c recently and was curious if anyone else has seen this. At random times, for example I may be writing an email, dialing someone, playing texas hold'em, etc., the screen will go black and then nothing. A few moments later, screen will come back on and I'm locked out, enter my password and I'm right where I left off with whatever I was doing, but the screen will go black and continue to do this multiple times (usually about 4 times) - finally it will stablize and everything is good.

I've had this happen in the last month, have had the phone since it first came out, and it happens about once every 2 weeks.

Any thoughts?

Not sure if this is the same issue, but my 7130c occassionally locks me out while I'm in the middle of doing something (I don't think I get a black screen or anything though). I've always just assumed that its due to the 20-minute (or whatever yours is set to) auto-lockout feature. My guess is that it measures from the actual time of last unlock, not the last activity, so once it hits 20 minutes it kicks me out. Unlocking sends me right back to where I left off.
