I think I have a fairly unique problem, but I hope someone here can help me.I have a Nokia 5800 which is fantastic, apart from the very annoying problem that the phone will freeze and ultimately crash about 50% of the time when I flick the key lock after it has spent a bit of time on, but not being used (in stand by). I will press a button (e.g. to bring up the dialler, or even just the menu screen) and the phone will obviously register the command (tactile response, and button will highlight), but not respond. If I leave it, it *might* eventually load, but any further inputs are met with the same overly sluggish response. It basically becomes unusable, and I have to switch it on and off again. If I have tried to press too much, ultimately even the on/off button won't respond, so I have to remove the battery. Once the phone is started up again, it's fine - until the same thing happens again about an hour later. As I'm sure you can understand, this makes the phone totally unreliable, and therefore not much good at its core function of being a phone!This started happening the evening after my number was ported from O2 to Orange. I thought it was the phone itself, so I put the factory settings back on, then updated the firmware, and still I suffered the same problem. I took the handset back to the shop I bought it from, and got it exchanged for a brand spanking new handset today. I got it home and same problem. V20 firmware was pre-installed on the new handset.I am now thinking that this problem could be related to the number port - the week and a half before I did this, I had no problems with the phone whatsoever. I just wondered if anyone had any further insight on this, and if it's even possible for a number port to stop a handset working correctly?? Any suggestions or ideas are extremely welcome, this is driving me mad!
