    I have to work?
    Has anyone tried a hard reset (device reset). Tech will have you do it anyway so try it. Back up all your free apps using astro. I use lookout for other back ups.

    Give it a shot. Then call tech if issues persist.

    Stuck pixel and random restarts. I really do like the X it has grown on me but when I get my replacement Monday if I have the same issues I am strongly considering the T-Mobile Vibrant. We will just have to wait and see. :(

    Phone calls and texts wouldn't go through, went back to previous screen. Inconsistent connectivity, then none (circle with bar).

    First I've heard of a problem similar to mine. The bottom 1/4 of the screen (in portrait mode) became completely unresponsive - not gray or flickering though. Tried multiple reboots and battery pulls.

    I even resorted to trying a factory reset, which was the last nail in the coffin, because you need to press "Continue" at the bottom of the screen to proceed through setup. :eek:

    Replacement expected to arrive tomorrow.

    In the short amount of time I've grow strangely attached to my release day model. So much so I was willing to be patient and wait for a camera bug patch.
    However when the battery went from 14hrs + of heavy use to 8hrs of light use (3 - 3.5 heavy), it was time to take advantage of the new replacement option.


    Anyone know if there's a way to transfer my purchased version of Rock Player?
