Back on 7-18-07 my 7100 (Nextel) died. I started a thread here and it basically wound up that I lost everything since the last sync. On 7-19-07 they had my new phone in. I was pretty impressed with that. This phone was doing fine until about 6 days ago.
First off I can two-way for about 3 minutes or so and the phone portion of my 7100 is gone. It drops me in the middle of a conversation and it's not that I have no signal, its that the phone part gives up. When it started, I could turn off the radio and power it down for a few minutes and power back up and it would be fine. An actual phone call, as opposed to two-way, and I have about 40 seconds including ring time. After 5 or 6 days the power off thing is taking longer and longer.
Second thing is it's started a new thing where it resets the network time arbitrarily. The actual time is always right, but it may go a few days forward or a few days back. I switched it off Network time and over to manual, but it defaults back and the same thing.
The other big thing, to me, is my calendar. It's went completely blank. I keep reseting the date in there to the correct date and I still get a blank calendar. I still get reminders, but I get them for whatever the network happens to be at for the moment. Such as a day or two ahead or a day or two behind. After I reset the date and time, the calendar is still blank, but if I close it out and go back in, it seems to default to December 31, 1969. Weird?
Now I can't even hit 1 to get my voice mail when my phone part actually works because I get a message that there is no phone number associated with my phone. I keep re-putting it back in and it keeps losing it.
I realize that this is more than likely going to be a deal where I take it to Sprint/Nextel and they send me another one. However, if someone here had something similar happen or ideas, I'd like to hear them. Kinda like going to a car mechanic, I feel better going in there if I'm armed with a little info. I perused thru here and tried a search, but to be honest, I couldn't really figure out what "terms" to search.
