for all persons who experience problems, update your firmware.
for those who've done this, their phones work 100% now than with the older firmware.
if you need detailed instructions, email me and i'll be happy to assist.
also, not all software you put onto the phones correspond with each other. just like your pc, too much junk n its gonna crash. try to just install necessary programs.
for those with branded phones that say the phones give problems, its nothing to do with the phone but with the provider software.
