Had it a week, and it's "bricked" 4 times
Not really sure what's going on, did a quick search and no one else seems to be having this problem. The phone is pretty new so....
I ordered the Lucid 2 as my free upgrade on Verizon, to replace my Xperia Play, which I hated, and my wife's old Droid Incredible, which I was using because I hated my Xperia.
At first I was in love. For the first hour or so I had it working it was great. I was a but annoyed by the tips that pop up (haven't found a way to disable them, yes I'm running it in standard mode since I'm not a smart phone noob), but other than that I was very impressed.
Then, while setting up some things, and downloading a few apps (tweetdeck, instagram, etc. Nothing odd) the phone wouldn't turn back on. Battery was full. Tried to plug it into the charger anyways and nothing. Not even the status light came on. Had to pull the battery, reassemble, then it turned on just fine. Was good for a few days. Tuesday night it happened again while I was asleep. Then again Wednesday while at work. And again last night.
I called Verizon and they're sending me a new replacement (had one more day before that program ended and I'd get a refurb phone, if there are any even available yet).
Any ideas on what might be causing this? The only thing I can think of is I went into the developer options, which it tells you changing things may make the phone unstable, and selected the "screen never times out when charging", or whatever its called. I turned that off a little while ago, I'll see if it makes a difference.
