It almost never fails. No matter what I do to prevent it. All the research in the world, waiting for the initial release to purge....everything I can and yet I still end up with a phone I absolutely love but that has issues. It is tough, because I am suffering from an illness that doesn't allow me to do most of the things most people can do physically as far as running around and what not and it is also attacking me mentally trying to problem solve and teach myself through these forums. Also because of it, I have to have a phone that works for emergency purposes. I want a spectacular phone because let's face it, I don't have much of a life in bed and can only watch so much t.v or play so much xbox etc. This phone excites the hell out of me and I have always had an allergy to apples. ;] So, here is my issue after that little whiny rant. A few awesome people helped me out when I got this phone a little over a week ago. They instructed me in doing just what I could do to the phone without the possibility of voiding my 30 day exchange with at&t. Although those idiots probably would not know a rooted phone from a standard but I wanted to play it safe for those reasons above. I need to feel comfortable with this phone at that 30 day mark. And cannot afford to pay a dime extra or replace this phone because of my crazy medical costs and I have had a couple problems I was told to monitor during the next week or so. The initial problem and following issues seem to be what a large group are already dealing with. It started when I woke up to find my phone turned off. I knew it had a full charge but could not get it to turn on with or without a power cord attached. I was finally able to get it back on by pulling the battery. Since then, it went 3 days with not more than a minor lag here and there and then today and yesterday it randomly shut itself off during the day. Once sitting on my bed and once in my pocket (although I doubt I was able to shut it down pocket style on accident. So I guess my question after all of this (I feel the need to explain myself all the time because most people just do not understand my circumstances and how they play into everything) would be: Only 10 days into my 30 days with at&t, should I immediately return my phone to normal and exchange it right away? It seems like a no-brainer, but I cannot afford to waste the energy making that trip if it is something simple to fix. Also, if you have any other advice or tips on how I should handle the remaining 20 days after I replace the phone, anything would be appreciated! Thanks guys!
