    A couple of weeks ago my X10i started acting weird after nearly one year of behaving generally fine. It hangs a couple of times a day needing battery removal and rebooting. When i wake the screen it doesn't always show the slider. Sometimes when it does show the slider it also shows the last inbound caller as if I'm getting a call but without ringing for a second or two before showing the home screen. I reinstalled the fw i couple of times and used it for about a week like this before I took it to the shop where I bought it. Hopefully I can get a refund og swap it for the Galaxy SII. :)

    OK....so you don't need any help and you are just venting?

    I would have reflashed to the Generic world software....I would have formatted the SDCard and installed it all from scratch.

    Oh well. Hopefully the Galaxy doesn't act 'drunk' My buddy Galaxy is quicker and already has 2.3 installed, but his phone is much more problematic than mine and drops calls on him about once every other day. But he hasn't tried to fix his phone at all.

    The service shop just reinstalled the fw and claims the phone is fine even though I did the same thing twice to no avail. I guess time will show. I'm not holding my breath.

    To be honest before taking the phone back I would advise formatting the memory card. The repair agents will run an update to resolve any software issues on the phone but there may be corrupt data on the memory card causing this issue.

    Main Menu > Settings > SD Card & Phone Storage > Unmount SD Card > Format SD Card.

    Could try using the task manager to optimize android. If u havent tried. Downloas Task Manager and tjen there is a way under android options to change optimization from android to task manager.

    After a flash u are suppose to let the phone settle down for 6 + hours so that it can optimize itself....u shouldnt try and push it to its limits for half a day.

    Jjust somethin to try

    Actually...the optimization thing isnt under the android settings...it is under Task Managers options...to auto kill apps...something to try...but i still suggest letting the phone settle down after a firmware and/or or os flash.

    Then again, that whole Task Manager thing wouldnt work 100 percent unless your phone was also rooted

    My phone isn't rooted any more. The day I got the phone back it took a few hours before it started acting up again. I used it until tuesday when I took it back to the shop and it acted strange several times a day.
