Keeping in mind this is my first smartphone, some of my "issues" may be common knowledge to you folks as existing for a long time, but they're new to me. :P
I started with 2.3.5 and have had the 2.3.6 update since it came out. All of the issues listed below have carried over across both versions.
1. No data when in a phone call.
As soon as I'm on a call with someone, I can receive texts but have no internet use whatsoever. No facebook, no browser, nothing. Is this common?
2. Picture corruption.
I often (every 2-3 days) have a picture not save properly. I've gotten accustomed to taking two shots of everything because often one doesn't save properly and shows up as 0KB when I look to download it from the SD card. I've had this same issue with two different SD cards. This also seems to happen if I take a picture immediately after launching the camera app.
3. Ringtones/alarm sounds changing
I use music from my SD card to do ringtones and text alerts. However, once I plug in my phone to the computer and access the card and then disconnect it, this happens: Alarms now say "Unknown Ringtone" and play a different song from my SD card. My ringtones and alerts do the same thing, they switch over to other songs. Is there a better way to assign these so that they don't change on every USB connection?
4. Wifi sucks.
The wireless card on the phone is junk. I have to try two or three times on some networks to connect and even then it will drop the connection when the router is 20 feet away. At home, I have a router and then a repeater on the other end of the house (where my room is). The wifi on the phone works off the router, but not off the repeater. This is despite the fact that my laptop, desktop, and iPad all work just fine off the repeater. So if I want to use wifi instead of my data plan, I have to leave my room, go upstairs, and get out of range of the repeater so that it connects to the router. It's the weirdest issue.
5. Some Google Voice texts do not go through to the phone.
This may be a GV issue and not a phone issue, but I often have (usually once a day) a Google Voice text go to my GV app, but it never arrives in on my phone in the normal text area like it should. I have notifications turned off for GV, because the texts forward to my phone, but this is annoying when I'm waiting for my phone to go off for a reply and it never gets it, the text just silently goes to GV. If I activate the GV notifications, then I get double alarms/alerts, which is even more annoying. :P
I think there are a few other issues I've had as well, but I won't remember until they happen to me again on the phone.
Anyway, does anyone have some ideas of how I can alleviate some of these problems?
