I also have a problem where the mailbox icon on the home screen always shows that I have a new text message, even when I have no messages. I don't want to resort to returning the phone...but that's about the only solution I can think of.
It may come to that. Sometimes in the rooting community, we see similar bugs. And the way to fix them is to wipe the entire phone clean (including the system ROM) and reflash from a blank device. Unfortunately for non-root users, factory reset doesn't touch the system ROM, which is probably where this problem resides. A return (or rooting and flashing a stock ROM) may be the only way of getting this sorted.

I've tried restarting the phone and pulling the battery but it still is stuck at that incorrect time (though it is moving - I noticed this about an hour ago when it said 5 hours and 30 minutes). Any thoughts?
There's a cycling arrow button in the battery report app that can force it to grab new info. It's in the upper right. I hope that helps.

Ok i changed from orange to t mobile. it text me saying activate success download an app from t mobile to activate but when i go on that link it says not working ? i tried going registering the phone on my houses wifi but still nothing?
I'm not the best with GSM, so bear with me if you've already done this: Try removing the SIM and rebooting. Then put the SIM in. I've heard that resetting the SIM can smooth out activation problems. If not, I'd suggest you contact T-Mobile.

I don't see this problem, is it a feature on Zedge? Try saving the wallpaper you want as a local file and change your homescreen without using Zedge and see if that helps.

I recommend Boat Browser. I do all of my bills and such with my mobile browser through it.
