4) On the power button, did they send you the same phone back or just give you a refurb? If the latter, I'd complain - sounds like you got one with a stuck or worn-out button. (Never mind, I see you said it's not a refurb).
Thanks for the response. You and I think the same way.
The phone is devoid of add on apps. I have reformatted phone storage, reformatted SD Card, and finally reloaded 2.15.00.07.28 firmware. NoGo
Signal is fine. No problem in this area for dropped calls, R2D2 during conversations, etc...
Both phones were new, not refurbs, as both were treated as retail purchases.
Rebooting is the only way to get it out of standby. First I have to remove the battery.
I understand there are some ground integrity issues on this model.
It is obvious that the power button works, and that the CPU strobes it looking for a keypress. I am really at a loss. It doesn't behave like any logic I know dictates.
If it is TTL Logic equivalent, differences in ground potential would make the pulse from the switch to make it go wakey wakey go to the bit bucket instead...
The new one comes out of standby (so far), but is sometimes un-responsive to swiping the lock bar. This happens mostly when the humidity is high, and the phone is ringing.
I also have a suspicion that the trace carrying voltage to the audio amp may be inadequate, and it may be loosing voltage (drawing excess current) when the phone is ringing, as this is the highest load on the audio chain.
A blown-out trace or poor contact of mating surfaces (battery contact, ribbon cable, common ground held by self-tapping screw anchored into plastic.... All of these may cause the problem.
But, since the problem has never been documented (this should be read as acknowledged) by either HTC or VZW, it fails to exist.
I though only Microsoft could cure the problem of replacing a burned-out light bulb by defining darkness as the new standard....
