    Firstly, I love this phone more than my kids;) but I've been having some small issues with it. Sometimes, Ill get a text from someone and it'll say its from a different contact or I'll go open a picture/video and it'll be the wrong one, it even displays the wrong thumbnail. Also, not often but occasionally I go to click on a box to type something and it opens only it won't allow me to type but this is solved by turning the phone off then back on. Is there anyone else having similar problems? Would you suggest I exchange it?

    I've seen the wrong contact issue a few times. Not enough for me to consider it a problem.

    The second problem sounds annoying though.....

    I experienced both of those problems on occasion with 2.0, but haven't since the 2.0.1 update. The text not working can be particularly annoying. I'm assuming your phone got the OTA update, right?

    OTA update...I don't think so...what is that, where do I find it? The only thing I've updated since I got the phone a week ago was a couple of apps.

    It was an automatic update that came out in early December. The phone should have updated to it automatically. Go to the main settings menu and click on "About Phone". Check the Firmware Version listed there; it should be 2.0.1. If so then you have the update.

    Are you using any home replacement apps? Home++ had my SMS doing your exact problem. Also, when I get the issue with not being to input a letter, I open up the hard keyboard and it seems to resolve the issue.

    I uninstalled Home++ and I no longer have the SMS issue, so that is fixable. I'm sure the dev will solve it soon and you can always redownload it.
