No issues with the current update but also very much looking to 2.00 and I hope the wait will not be too long. The C7 is for me the best phone ever so far, it's solid, feels right, beautiful quality and is everything a smartphone needs to be. I am truly happy to be back into the Nokia fold.
Guys, I went to NCC today, just to go and check with them if they have any knowledge about this issue. But, to my surprise, the guys were quite unknown to this kinda problem. They didn't deny that it was a fault, agreed to it that it seems to be a Hardware Defect and suggested me to submit the phone with them at the earliest.
I have started having this automatic restart issue and the menu key problem ever since I updated it to PR 1.2. They told me that they will reinstall the software and assured me that I will receive my phone as good as new.
However, I'm not wanting to submit my phone straight away. I'll wait and watch for sometime and see how Nokia responds to this widespread issue.
I know one day I'll get my C7 AMOLED replaced, just don't wanna give them my phone for a week or so and not get it repaired.

but i will let them fix my sim compartment problem..
hey dude..change topic, I tried to install that nokia sleeping screen app and it says, "unable to install. newer QT version needed" does this mean that I have to update my c7 to pr 1.2. Is that included on that update (newer QT version)? I also have 1 game that I can't install because of the same reason; but other than that, all apps and HD games are installing and working perfectly. thanks.

Besides, it doesn't really bother me after all. If time comes that someone here from the Philippines posts that he/she has brought his C7 to NCC and ended up having a perfect "tint-free" AMOLED, that is the time I'll be bringing mine as well. If I'm not mistaken, I have a 1-year warranty, and I still have a couple of months to watch what happens. But for the moment, it doesn't really bother me at all as I said before, the light control app is enough for me to watch all my HD movies with zero tint/discoloration as watching movies is really the only time my unit is affected with that "issue".

Does this mean that if I update to pr 1.2, the purple tint will evolve to red hue?hahaha.lol. Enjoy your phone guys. I'm sure, an answer will come soon.

I dont remember my 4 month old C7 having it when I got it, yet mine has a reddish tint on the lock screen clock now, and it has been there for atleast 2 months. It's not causing me any problems in other areas such as videos or images (the test images display as gray, white and black), and I've updated to PR 1.2 too.
As far as I can tell, the issue is inherent to the screen, and I dont expect differences to occur over time, you may notice differences just by changing the brightness level of your screen. If I could remember if my display had the issue from the beginning, it would have been helpful, but I dont, and in any case, I can definitely confirm that its not worsening, even after PR 1.2 (I actually think it looks better lol), but in the absence of a proper response from Nokia, what we're talking about are only opinions and speculations. One thing is clear,your phone either has the issue or not, and there's little we can do in terms of a fix, so if the issue is really bad then take it to NCP/NCC or else enjoy the device instead of worrying about it. Cheers.

Its just now that i realized that while using the camera, you can change the resolution from 8 mp to 6 mp by pinching the screen (like pinch to zoom on pictures). same thing with capturing videos, from HD to TV high quality. LOL. so stupid.

why, 31 Mar 2011i just posted my probem to the main discussion board...i'm sad...Well Jaypee, let's just wish Nokia will come out with some clear answers. They are kinda silent on the issue and eventhough they acknowledged the problem and posted a bulletin, it would be nice if they will tell us more about the source of the issue.

Maybe it would be more helpful if you guys post your problems on the link below and let Nokia know that you guys think you got the purple problem from the recent update.
