    Top bar disappears after update?

    My mom's D2 has the newest update (So does mine, but it appears unaffected), and, any time she gets any pop-up notifications (SMS, generally), the top bar disappears. What is going on how how can I fix it?
    Buy it, use it, break it, fix it.

    I'm having the same issue. got a systems update notification for (4.5.621.A955.verizon.en.us), then phone rebooted. Notification bar appeared for maybe 5 minutes now its gone. When I reboot phone it appears again then disappears. Can someone chime in and tell us if you ae experiencing this as well? thx

    I have the same problem. It actually started BEFORE I applied the update, hit the 'later' button on the update notification, and soon after the status bar disappeared. Applied update, same problem.
    Phone boots up, notification bar is there. If i try to swipe it down, sometimes it works, sometimes it freezes up the touchscreen for a few seconds. Then after a few minutes, it disappears entirely. If the phone rings have to click on the dialer icon to get the "Answer" screen to show up.

    If I look in the Running Apps the Status Bar and several other apps are in the "restarting" mode.

    Based on another thread I read this may have something to do with the Universal Inbox. I was playing around with the accounts in my universal inbox and bang my status bar came back without a reboot. Victory was short lived, however, bout 10 minutes later it disappeared again and I can't make it come back without turning the phone off now.

    Found a (rather lackluster) solution

    Factory Reset seems to fix this issue.
    Buy it, use it, break it, fix it.

    Guess it's not common knowledge still but it's always recommended that you do a Factory Data Reset after any OTA updates.
