I didn’t get the replacement warranty from bell so I’d like to know that this is a hardware problem that’ll be fixed before I send it away to Samsung for weeks on end…
I work in a building with really poor cell reception, my old htc touch had no problems but my new Galaxy S is lucky to send and receive txts.
The problem I’m having is that my phone is constantly locking up when I’m at work, if I don’t notice and reset it (hold down the power button for 15-30 seconds) it’ll drain the battery dead in about an hour or two. When I do notice, it’ll keep locking up a few times every hour! The work around that I have found is to put it into airplane mode, this makes it pretty much useless as a phone.
It seems to work fine everywhere else, mind you I have had problems with it not connecting when I dial out (gives me an “out of area” message, or simply says “radio off”) but it usually works the second or third time I try.
Has anyone else had these problems? I have updated to the latest firmware and have done the factory restore a few times with no effect.
Thanks for your feedback!
