    That phone is 2.1, so have you rooted it and flashed a 2.2 rom? Does this all sound unfamiliar to you? If you bought it and did nothing to it than it is stock 2.1.

    If you just bought it and it is already acting up, you may want to take it back to the store for a replacement. It should not malfunction straight out of the box.

    LOL HAHAHAH... excuse that, people have been waiting for an update for this phone for over 6 months. There is a whole thread dedicated to it. Trust me if there was an update everyone here would know. But even if it was, no it would not auto update, you would have to press something to initiate it. It's a malfunction. If the phone is doing something that you did not tell it to do its malfunctioning.

    +1 to the waiting for an update.

    I waited, and waited. And waited.

    Finally I searched about it in Google, found this site a few days ago, and been here ever since!

    And now I have 2.2

    to get rid of the metro hello POS, you have to root your phone using z4root and you need root explorer or androotfile...

    use root explore and navigate to the media folder in system and delete the bootstrapsound.ogg and the sound is gone.

    Tech support says this is a phone issue, repair says it is a tech support issue. Have had this problem for 2 1/2 months. Replaced phone, now on 3rd one.
    Any suggestions that will not void my warranty?
