Been using this phone for about 2 years... and it makes my working day's feel even more miserable.

Im on my 8th one (YES 8th).

Common problems - Random Lockups/resets, Calls get blocked and you have to reset the phone, scanner stops working without any reason, touchscreen stops working (have to replace when that happens), Keyboard input starts to have 2-3 seconds lag which makes it impossible to use (have to replace also).

Good stuff? -> It's a tough phone. Doesn't break easily.

I have been using this model phone for more than 3 years. It is the biggest piece of crap I have had to use. I am on my 4th one. Constants lockups, spinning wheel. Lacks features. This is 2014. Not sure who made the choice to purchase these in bulk for the company. Probably the same person who buys the cheapest laptops available to provide to our technicians.

Have been using a work issued one for about 18months. What a piece of rubbish, constant freezing, hopeless touchscreen, inaccurate keyboard, low volume, bluetooth regularly drops out, phone turns itself off for no reason, poor battery life, low quality camera, the list goes on and on. Everyone at work who has one hates it. Stay well clear unless you want an expensive, poor quality paperweight.

> In reply to hi5 @ 2013-01-28 11:31 from MW%% - click to readThanks hi5 for your notice about the firmware update. I cannot tell if it's fixing anything yet, but I have begun to update our units.

We have a few users running the latest firmware (OS 05.02.23145 / OEM Ver 02.41.0400) whose screen goes black almost immediately after they dial the phone. They DO NOT have the phone up to their ear (which covers the sensor and purposely blacks out the screen). I cannot replicate the issue and am hoping someone else has experienced it and has some advice.

We've already tried the following;

START / SETTINGS / POWER / ADVANCED / change the On battery power option to 5 minutes
START / SETTINGS / SYSTEM / BACKLIGHT & KEYLIGHT / Backlight timeout 3 minutes

This has not helped. I'm sure there's a fix somewhere, but I don't know what it is.
