1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Alright guys, i'm going to do my best to document everything i've done so far.

    I got my phone, and within the first 24 hours, I would lock the phone, and everything would lock properly. Then, I would press the unlock button, only to have the backlight come on for the bottom 4 buttons (Back/Menu/Home/Search). I would press it one more time to turn it off, then again and it would turn on properly. Since I didn't know otherwise, I considered this a "feature". Another minor problem was that the screen would not turn back on after I was in a phone call unless I was in direct sunlight. I would have to unlock the phone, which was already a problem of its own.

    Over the next 24 hours, I would have to press the unlock button more than 3 times, sometimes 12-15 before it would come back on. I intuitively pulled the battery, and, it began to work.

    Within 30 minutes or so, it began to happen again. When I called Verizon, they instructed me to pull the battery. Of course it worked, but when I told them that I had done that already, they said,"Well, this is your first documented time calling our technical support. If the problem continues, please call back." I took offense, but carried on.

    When I did another battery pull, the phone wouldn't turn on. I was outside and couldn't tell if the backlight was turning on. 6 or so hours later, when I walked into my house and it was dark -- I noticed the backlight had been on the whole time. The phone had not booted, though. I also tried the "hard reset", but that wouldn't work -- as it would not boot.

    The few apps that I installed were ShapeWriter and AndChat. That was it.

    I'm going to write this whole thing off as a faulty device, and taking it back to Verizon for a new one today.
