    I get force close errors on my phone (Vibrant from bell Canada) I sent it for repairs about 6 weeks ago... They flat out replaced the phone after 4~ weeks of waiting! Now after 2~ weeks of use its getting all kinds of force close errors AGAIN!!

    I did not root it this time. No lag fix. Stock room freshly replaced from Sammy to me! Apps that are randomly force closing or force closing a boot are: Handcent, MMS, Carrier settings, Maps, Music Player, Messages, E-Mail (Samsung one), there's more I don't recall all of them off the top of my head.

    The biggest problem of all is that I cant read the text messages I'm getting and I cant respond! Also Bell offers a loner phone but I use a different service provider... And the loner phone isn't unlocked so its totally useless thus I have to revert to a iphone 3g that my 4 year old son has been playing with for 3 months... Cracked screen broken buttons and way to many games for the old lil 3g iphone. (It runs slower than a 386)

    all I ask is if someone knows a way to;
    A. Get a refund... (like pulling teeth from hypo)
    B. Get another model that is more stable (its a work phone and needs to work for me to use it)
    C. Fix the problem. (tried factory reset, wiped phone, reinstalled apps, rebooted, Hung on S boot logo... Re-factory reset from recovery menu (home+power+vol) not from in the settings menu, reinstalled apps and worked for a few days... Now its force closing again!
    D. Keep the phone and just use it as a 720p divx player and pray my All Share and Video player apps don't start force closing.

    You should return it once again. I think they have to provide you with a phone while yours is at their hand, but not sure. They might replace your device with a new one I think.

    You don't sound concerned that your getting force close on stock rom, unrooted. Personally I didn't spend 600$ not be able to check my e-mail or text message. I wish I could say its a user error (my fault) but I would consider my self very experienced and all my trouble shooting and time spend on this vibrant is just infuriating.

    I will send it off for repairs again. If I get another replace ment hand set I will be selling it in order to buy something better.

    Anyone have a suggestion to a phone better than Sammy Vibrant in the Canadian market?
    And plz not the iPhone4!
    Thanks for any input!

    I've been playing with a Motorola Defy that i bought for my daughter for chrimbo, and so far it's faster and more stable than my own Galaxy S (European model). Worth a look.
