Hi all, Ive got a few problems with my GN that Id like to put out there to see if any one can help....
The GN is the first smart phone Ive ever used and its been a steep but fun learning curve. I find it very useful and Im using it every day for navigation, films, music, reading, games, etc. My girlfriend is jelouse and wants one too but to be honest I reluctant to recommend it. She has already noticed the battery doesnt last long and thinks I should send it in for a replacement... Id say Im 80/90 percent satisfied with the GN, Its a shame its so buggy otherwise it would be a very good phone.
Some of the issues I have and would appreciate any help offered:
1 I have the samsung phone holder for my car, and like to have it set horizontal. Problem is if I turn on the phone (battery is dead for example) after putting it in the cradle, half the sim lock screen is hidden so that I cant enter the code and click ok. This is annoying and seems a bit stupid.
2 Just bought a 32gig samsung sd card that works great except that ever since I installed it if I have the phone connected to the charger, the touch screen doesnt work! I cant scroll or select apps etc. Is this a known bug?
3 Head phones only work on one ear, and connected to the car stereo with a phono cable, only one speaker works.
4 Seems Orange FR have no intention of updating their clients GNs to ICS. Is there a way to update myself that wont be detected/ invalidate the warrenty if I have to reset back to JB?
