    For the last couple of days my screen will black out for a split second and come right back on. I have not downloaded any new apps in the last week but I did down load the the software update to my phone last week. I called Verizon and they told me that they have never herd of that issue and wanted to send me out a replacement phone but I told them that I did not want a used phone. Has anyone else had this issue with their phone

    Since the update, I have had something similar happen. It seens to happen when I hit the bookmarks icon to get to a favorite website. The screen goes black. If I hit the home button, it goes to home but when I try to go back on the internet, it goes black again. Only a battery pull fixes this. It doesn't happen every time so I am planning on letting this go since we will be getting Jelly Bean in the next month or two and hopefully that will fix it.
