    Ghostly Turn Ons?

    i was wondering if anybody elses bionic for no reason what so ever just sitting on a desk or something your bionic just turns on? after turning off my bionic on quit a few occations i will be in the living room and hear the "droid" sound that it does when it turns on, i was just curious if it happens to others? Not a big deal just weird is all.

    An issue I've seen with all smartphones... Sometimes they just randomly reset.

    Yes I turned my phone off twice today and watched it turn back on by itself just sitting on a desk...just turned itself on! only problem ive had so far after the third time it stayed off until I turned it back on.

    Almost as creepy as annoying!

    This has been an issue on my X ever since the GB update.

    Discussion here.... Droid X powers on by itself.

    Huh... I missed that (that you'd powered down...)

    Is it plugged in at the time? If so I wonder if it has something to do with whatever allows the phone to be off while the battery charges?

    I don't know enough about things to know if that's an android thing or a Bionic thing? The original droid had to be be on while charging so it could monitor the battery stuff... So I wonder if the new phones are overriding something in Android that says to boot phone when plugged in, and every so often it messes up?

    Otherwise I got nuthin. :P

    Might need a Bionicism ... <g> I was surprised today when I was talking to a vzw rep on the phone and asked if any word on a firmware update, and he asked what was wrong, I mentioned the moving apps to media area. He said an update will be coming, but its all part of being an 'early adapter' ... great advice.

    well i called verizon and asked them about it they say um yeah that is creepy, lol. and they said to do a battery pull wait ten seconds then put it back in and if it turns on still RUN, yes thats what she said i thought it was funny but other then doing that just keep the battery out till you need to use till the issue is fixed cause theres sometime i don't notice it cause i have it silent and then i go to use it and the battery will be dead. thats the most annoying part of it.
