Question Screen locks and won't unlock

My Streak (2.2.2, GAUSB1A135100-EU, build 15609) sometimes screen-locks... and then won't unlock.

The phenomenon seems to be more and more frequent. It seems to be linked to erratic movement of the device -- therefore probably linked to the orientation sensor.

Sometimes the device will unlock if it is left unmoved for a while... but not always.

Does anyone have the same problem? More importantly: doesn anyone have an idea on how to correct it!

Thanks,
Bob

I had that issue with my last Streak, generally only happened about once a week. I would just put it back to sleep and wake it up again and that would normally fix it. (Not turn it off, just turn it dark for a second).

That sometimes works... but less and less often as the problem becomes more frequent...

If I remember right it was something with the screen calibration. Try that. My other one does it when its in the pocket for some time. Its all stock 2.2, but my rooted one dont do it ever.

Calling the Dell Streak an "Android Phone" is entering a grey area - with a massive 5-inch screen the device is practically a tablet but it hauls cellular connectivity that make "phone" a perfectly acceptable categorization. By ... Read More
