    update broke my phone

    Ever since the update my phone powers down several times a day. Not cool !
    Now i have to constantly check to make sure I'm reachable. I'm on call, for God's sake.

    First and last HTC device.

    I hear you...I love how android devices just randomly reboot or freeze,especially when in use.I was about ready to throw my droid x at a brick wall,its been acting up all day,freezing,and lagging....my sons el cheapo samsung never misses a beat,as does my old lg envy,never did this crap. Factory resets,formatting SD card,various roms,it doesnt matter,they all do it....

    If you're stock and not rooted, I've heard/read that a factory reset will help, if not completely stop, reboots since the OTA. I know that's a headache, but could be worth it if it works.

    The factory reset corrected my reboot issues.

    I've never had a reboot on this phone thank God!

    The only major problem I had besides the battery, was the GPS. It let me down a couple of times, but now it's working.

    I have only had a couple reboots after the update, but considering the environment I was in, non-A/C basketball stadium at VaTech in a space where 10K people are crammed into a space for 8K for my brother's Grad School graduation, I don't believe it should be happening again.

    As like the poster above, my main issue was GPS, and I am still not sure if its fixed. I have always had an immediate lock in Maps, but Navigation and Tasker were usually really far off. Through intermittent testing, it seems to have been fixed, but I'm going to have to give it a while before I know for sure.

    My Thunderbolt works flawlessly. And I'm sick of reading complaints from people that refuse to simply resolve their issue. The guy above complains of an issue then a few posts later says he refuses to put forth any effort to fix it. Live with it then. These issues are very easy to resolve with minimum effort.

    I recommend flip phones for people like this.

    And don't think iPhones are any better... Search and read about all their complaints.

    I have even offered to fix peoples phones for them but they would rather continue complaining.
