    Sorry to hear that, Geeve! I've read about this problem also. I wonder how a product goes bad after all the testing before released?!! One would assume they test the hell out of them. Art doesn't seem to have problems. It's the same model, correct?

    Not sure either! Yeah same model. I have read that some folks have trouble and others don't, I don't know if it's a batch problem or what, but they are going to exchange it this afternoon. My local store has them in stock....

    Most likely OS updates or mobile vendor updates which caused an issue which came after all of the original testing.

If the second one does the same thing she is going back to Android I guess this is a known problem, and MS and Nokia are working on it, But it could take several months to get the fix out. Hers is not usable at all

    That sucks.

    Hopefully the replacement works fine!

    I'd imagine Nokia and Microsoft will release an update within a month or so to fix it. I remember when I first got my Nokia Lumia 900, there were some reports of people experience data loss even though they were connected. Nokia announced that they know about the issue, will have an update out in three weeks time, apologized, and even went to the extent of paying back the 100 dollars to buy the phone on contract! That's why I love Nokia, they know customer service and that is one of the reasons why I'm going with the Lumia 920, other than it being awesome! They ended up releasing the patch fix for the 900 in like a week and a half earlier than expected. They also had reports of purple tinting on the keyboards with some phones, which they fixed a bit later. It seems like some bad apples, no pun intended, and the same is going with Windows Phone 8.

    So far so good on the replacement phone! Been on for about 45 minutes now and it hasn't rebooted yet She loved the phone when it worked so it's good that this one seems better.

    I had read Nokia was sending phones out to folks as well that were reporting the problems. I have heard nothing but good things about there customer service. I am going to baby sit this one till I leave work and see what it does....

    LOL! I know that all to well....

    I had my nephew who is visiting bring me the phone so I could do the exchange. He was kinda upset because I was going to pick him up and take him so we could go to Guitar Center but I explained to him "Man, I wanted to do this early because we gotta keep Mama happy. When Mama's happy the house is happy, and when the House is happy then both you and I will be too." He laughed and understood, still gonna take him though when I get home, but this time Mama has a working phone and that will keep her busy.

    Two hours and all is looks great with this phone.......

    I want one BAD!!!!!!!!!
