    I have a few questions and if anybody has had these issues. First off my browser won't let me click certain buttons after a few hours of the phone being on. Not a big deal but when I shut the phone off it won't turn back on unless I do a battery pull. This happens 2-3 times a day so can get annoying...I'm about to get a case though and don't want to keep taking it off and on and risk messing up the fit or scratching it. Does anyone know of a program that shuts the phone off like a battery pull? I had one for my blackberry and it worked great but haven't seen any apps like this mentioned on here

    first off thats not normal operation for your buttons to stop working after X amount of time.

    are you rooted? do you have any custom roms installed?

    do you have LOT of apps installed?

    has this always happened or did you notice it happen after a app install or removal?

    just trying to sort out what the issue could be here...

    Another question would be are you running a task killer? Sounds suspect if you are. Fresh rom's don't need task killers as they are already optimized and have removed most of the sprint apps.

    Really?


    Also, I'm switching over from BB and really thrilled with the switch...but all the Android people who say "you dont have to restart Android OS" that's just not true....there are times where I'm so glitchy that I cant make a call or open a text or whatever else....restart and I'm good....we really need quick pull for android
