I have been reading this forum for a while now and noticed so many additional problems with this D2G. I recently got my D2G about a month ago, and this is my first smart phone too, so I was pretty excited... than all these problems:
New out of box (Verizon unlocked unit.. I live in Canada)
(stock, not rooted, stock SD card)
-restarts on it's own 3-4 times a day
-take the phone out of my pocket and try to unlock screen.. screen stays black and must hard restart
-freezes all the time no matter what I tried to do.
-looses phone and 3G signal all the time (keeps saying no GSM/UMTS, want to switch to global mode?), after a restart, strong signal again.
after 1 factory reset:
(not rooted, put in a 16g class 6 sd)
-no more restarts on it's own
-no more black screen when I take out of my pocket and unlock screen
-screen now won't come out of black screen when i get off a call (must restart unit)
-call speaker volume is VERY low when I answer calls (sometimes)
-freezes when I try to access media on the SD card (switched back to SD card that came with the phone and still the same problem)
-phone and 3G signal still drops randomly and requires restart
-takes a long time to get into camera mode
after 2nd factory reset:
-no more call speaker volume problems
-all other problems still exsisting
plus a bunch of other software related issues:
-connected to wifi but no internet connection on random basis, requires me to turnoff wifi and turn on wifi again... will get connection for about 15 mins and loose internet again, but still shows as connected to wifi
-gmail doesn't send and needs to clear data before I can send again
i'm so tired of this device..
**Apr 25 11 Update**
ok, so it was a long shot but I gave it a try... what if my stock SD card was bad to start off with, and the other 2 SD cards that I've tried on my phone.. the phone just didn't like it or they were bad too... so I tried a 4th SD card on the phone (Scandisk 16G Class 4).. 3 days now, my phone's random lockup problem seems to be gone.
-bad reception problem still exsists
-invalid mobile country code messages still pops up a lot (assisted dialing is turned off)
-phone & 3G signal still cuts out and doesn't return until I reboot (turning airplane mode on than off doesn't solve my problem)
-all the software related issues still exsist of cause.
