    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?

    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.

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