    Good morning all!

    So I know I haven't posted in quite a long time, but that's besides the point when I came across an issue with my Electrify and decided the best place to turn to was good ol' Phandroid. :)

    Today's topic will revolve around a sound performance issue I discovered while owning my Electrify.

    The issue:
    Constantly (more than one occassion) the music or sound will stop playing and I won't be able to hear my notifications or ringtones (and sometimes even media sounds) until I fully restart my phone. I typically leave the phone on for 4-5 days without a restart until the aformentioned issue occurs. I've tried everything from uninstalling/reinstalling certain apps to messing with the sound options in the software. Nothing seems to fix the problem except a reboot which gets to be quite annoying.

    Here are the apps I have installed on my phone (that are not stock):
    Angry Birds (Vanilla, Seasons, Rio, and Space)
    Amazon App Store
    B.Net Authenticator
    Beautiful Widgets
    Bejeweled - Uninstalled
    Dead Space - Uninstalled
    Defender II
    Diablo III Game Guide
    Kobo (eReader)
    Messenger (Facebook)
    Phandroid App
    Plants Vs Zombies - Uninstalled
    PNC Mobile
    State Farm Pocket Agent
    QR Droid
    Rage of Bahamut
    Steampunk Skull Live Wallpaper (Not active) - Uninstalled
    TegraZone Games
    SWtOR Authenticator - Uninstalled
    WoW Armory

    Yeah, I've got quite a few. At first, I thought the issue spawned from Zedge as I used their ringtones/notifications, but during the phone silence even USCC/Moto stock ringtones and notifications wouldn't play while in the Sounds section of the phones' options. Then, I thought that Words With Friends (not Scramble) had caused the issue as it really started around the time I installed it to my phone. I've had it uninstalled since, but the problem hasn't gone.

    I know a system restore may be in order, but I'm trying to avoid that as with the hassel of some authenticators and games that require device registration. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know!

    Edit: Uninstalled a few applications. Have yet to experience the issue since my last restart on 6/7/12 @ 9:55a.

    I an having the same problem....
    I have to reboot my phone 2 times a day that is after i notice that my sound has cut out. even if I use a task killer it works the first time then it does not work after. It is driving me nuts. i see that you are rooted to and I wonder if that has something to do with the phone?
