    to question everything. And not die, ever.

    Haven’t been able to keep one working! They seem to all have two real peculiarities.
    1) something seems to reset the OS at an odd time , usually during the night. and then
    2)it just WILL not download anything from the Market.. not even the updates it says it is getting. Nor will it actually reload anything that is in it's backups . ( does that count as 3? Not sure):eek:

    The folks at Dell say the only solution is to re-install the system as it originally was. That doesn't actually help, it still wont download anything. Although I did discover, accidentally that it will download new programs IF there is NO flash card in the unit.:thinking: Hardly a satisfactory solution either.:rolleyes:

    I'm at wits end.. Rooting ? at this point, other than turning the unit into a brick could hardly make the system worse. And I'm a Linux Chixsor anyway.. so I might be able to make it work ok., no? :cool:
    Bonus Karma points to anyone who can point me in the right direction here. Thanks :)
    I'm ready to toss the thing for an old flip phone since I'm getting 1 of those new Lenovo tablets.. the Business ones not the kiddie ones. Buh Bye ATT .. It's all wireless..

    LOL, blonde1, you certainly don't seem to fit the blonde stereotype at all--in fact, you seem downright phone-savvy.

    Anyway, your's is not the first case I read about re. the seemingly possessed phone... Its seems to me that its probably app-related, but debugging this would likely take uninstalling the most likely culprit one at a time until the issue disappears (or uninstall all of them and add them back one at a time until the problem reappears).

    You could also try posting in your device's home forum to see if anyone else is experiencing what you are:

    So, not sure how helpful that is, but we're glad you signed-up here at AF!

    Cheers and good luck!
