Heres my 2 cents:
At 4am 2 days ago, mine updated on its own. From this point forward, my fascinate is a POS.
It caused me to be late this am. Last night, I took it off charge at 100%, alarm set, but it didnt go off this am.
When I hit the power button to turn screen on to see why, it showed the big battery on front and blinked.....as though, cant turn on cause its dead.
I plugged charger up to it....showed green full, but then it "would" power on.
Showed full charge(nearly...94%). So I soft reset, still wouldnt turn on....again needed a charger connected just to power up.
I took to 2 verizon stores and they both said....HARD RESET. DAMN. Ive had to hard reset this phone twice already through ownership for quirky issues here and there.
So I came home, did the hard reset and it booted with 2.3.5.....but no keyboard in any menu...text, email....nothing. Did another hard reset and this time it was like it was when I got it. After 2 hrs, I managed to get my phone back like it was before hard reset......but it still has issue. Power off all on its on sometimes, and wont boot without charger.
If I turn it off, it will not boot until a charger is connected. I give up. Im gonna make them replace it.....I wish I could pay difference and get different phone......at this point iPhone 4s. Im sick of the quirky Windows vista like crap all the time. It started out fast, but in 6months it became slow, laggy and force closes, total spaz outs.
Im gonna replace the battery to see if thats the issue.....I have noticed the life hasnt been as good.....maybe its my fault cause I keep it plugged up so much while using it...i.e listening to podcasts or playing games.....why not plug it in if Im next to outlet right?
