Putting the device in Standby and then bringing it out of Standby. After doing this, the device works as expected. Using the holster or the mute button to get the device to go into standby does the trick.
I can't be the only one that this is happening to, now that I've seen it on both 8800's I've owned.
I've had the same problem. Must be a bug in the OS.
