IPhone :: 4 Is Shutting Itself Off Intermittently?

May 7, 2012

My iPhone 4 developed a problem where it shuts itself off intermittently, sometimes at night when it is unattended (and yes, the battery was fully charged). It is my 2nd iPhone 4 with this problem, and from what I see on this forum, not an uncommon problem with this device. Apparently it is a known hardware issue with some iPhone's and the refurbished units they use as replacement devices have not been expunged of this circuit board demon.

Rather than swap out my phone for a new one (or even another refurb), I was given the possible explanations:An application is crashing the OS. (I interpret this statement as IOS 5 is no further evolved than Windows 3.1 where an app can crash the entire OS)An application may be using too much memory causing the phone to shut down (Really? No OS protection or throttling to prevent this?)A 3rd party application might have had a bad update in the App Store and Apple does not review updates (Really? So if I publish an app in the store, I can then update it with miscellaneous viruses and malware? Whoo Hoo)It could be usage (Translation: using an iPhone 4 to play music, run apps and make phone calls may cause the device to fail. Sounds like a breach of Warranty for Fitness of Intended Purpose) I am not an Apple hater. I just want my phone replaced with a non-defective device. I don't appreciate the total run-around and denial of responsibility on Apple's part.

IPhone 5s :: Keeps Blacking Out Intermittently

Jun 4, 2014

The screen on my brand new iPhone 5S 32GB keeps blacking out intermittently. This sometimes happens I turn the phone from portrait to landscape, or sometimes when the keyboard is open and I try to type the letter ‘a’. Each blackout lasts less than a second and everything else appears to function normally, but it is impossible to use the keyboard in landscape mode sometimes as certain key presses black the screen out.

IPhone :: 3GS Intermittently Drops 3G And Displays SOS Only

Apr 20, 2012

iPhone 3GS intermittently drops 3G and displays SOS Only. A reset fixes it for a short while before it fails again. I have been having this problem for a while, and have tried many resets and restore, clearing the phone, using the phone as a 'new' iphone with no apps or user data, and it always fails the same way. Other phones in the area on the same carrier display full signal strength when this happens. Following a reset, the phone always works correctly for a period (of between 1 minute and 1 day), then fails again. I suspect I have a hardware fault.

IPhone :: Home Button Working Intermittently On IOS 5.1

Mar 26, 2012

Just upgraded my IPhone 4 to IOS 5.1. Since then, the home button sometimes does not work. Since I've never had a problem with my phone, and no new apps were added, it looks like a software glitch to me.

IPhone :: Voice To Text Works Intermittently?

Apr 18, 2012

Since I do a lot of driving, I tend to tap the speakerphone button and voice my text message instead of taking my eyes off the road so I can type but here lately my phone cannot understand what I am saying or completely types out something I didn't even say! What is up with this? I do make sure I speak slow and clearly and it will still mess up!

IPhone :: Not Receiving Text Messages Intermittently

May 9, 2012

I have an iPhone 4s and never had any problems but last night my iPhone stopped receiving text messages (from other iPhone users and other phone types). I messed around with my settings and my text messages started appearing again (although I can't remember what I pressed now)! I got a few people to send test text messages and I received these but again this evening I've stopped receiving text messages again.

IPhone :: Touchscreen Stops Working Intermittently?

May 12, 2012

I have an iPhone 3gs 16gig and the I broke the screen, the digitizer worked for a while so I just kept using it with the cracks on it. after the digitizer stopped working I did a full backup and went in to a local shop and had the screen and digitizer replaced. I then came home and did a restore and that gave me ios5.1. The phone worked great for a day then the touch screen started to stop working after about 10-30 seconds of use. I cant do anything with the phone without having to lock the screen and unlock it (sometimes that works, and sometimes I have to do that a few times because the touch screen doesn't work to unlock the phone) to continue using my phone.I am thinking it is because I upgraded to ios5.1, or is it a bad digitizer?

IPhone :: Signal Dropping Intermittently Even After Uninstalling Blacksnow

Jul 17, 2010

I purchased an iphone over kijiji locked to rogers and jailbroken to 3.1.2. During my days of owning it i found that the signal would drop randomly to 0 bars and proceed to "searching" to look for a network.. Ive looked this issue up plentiful over these forums and found that blacksnow seemed to be the culprit. After going through cydia i found that blacksnow was installed so i uninstalled it. I thought the problem was solved but a couple of minutes later after using apps that use 3g the connection dropped again. I dont know how this phone was jailbroken. its the 3gs with the old bootrom. ive never had this issue with my 3g phone. I restored again using redsnow and still same problems.

BB Torch :: 9800 Reboots Intermittently For Nothing

Jun 14, 2011

My Torch is about 9 months old. I had no problems with it until about a month ago. It constantly reboots. It is not software. Sometimes when you close the slider, it goes dead and reboots. I have now seen that if the slider is open and you softly wiggle the screen part it reboots.. not always.. This tells me that it is a hardware problem. A factory fault if you ask me. My wife's Torch is 2 months old. Same problem. Also reboots for nothing. Work colleague, also a torch. Just over a year old. Same problem. Reboots 4 or 5 times a day. This is definitely not software. If you put it down too hard, or keep it in your pocket. A lot of the time it reboots...

I have a strange problem which appears to be random. Occasionally it turns itself off for no reason. Occasionally when I slide it open to write sms it turns itself off.Battery is properly seated and battery has charge. These are not low battery conditions. Does anyone else suffer similar problems? How do you prove this to LG as it is random and difficult to replicate?

I've had my HTC Desire HD for just under 2 weeks and it keeps turning itself off.

Today - it is restarting to the White / Green HTC logo screen then turning right off again. But then intermittently it is staying on for a little bit.

Nokia :: N73 Unknown Icon Appearing Intermittently

Mar 17, 2010

Hopefully someone knows the answer to this but my N73, which us up to date firmware, has today begun flashing an icon on the desktop which I don't recognise.

Apologies for the appalling mock-up but it seemed a good way of trying to describe it. It's a grey square with a phone receiver flashing green and yellow in the middle. There also appears to be a letter D to the bottom right hand corner.URL... and URL...It's very odd, flashes for a few seconds and then disappears.

The trackpad on my Blackberry Bold 9700 works intermittently. I've:

HTC One M7 :: In Call Volume Drops To 1/3 Of Maximum Intermittently

Oct 13, 2014

Recently I've noticed I'll be in the middle of the call with the in call volume on max (which is very much needed on this phone...I don't have hearing problems ). Then every now and then the volume drops to 1/3 of maximum and I have to hold the volume up to bring it back to max.

(I've only seen references to ringing volume changing erratically, not in call volume) . My phone is rooted, but with stock ROM.

Galaxy S5 :: Lock Screen Intermittently Going Black Since OTA?

Mar 8, 2015

I've only had my S5 for a couple months now. About a month ago, I got an OTA update to 4.4.4, and since then my lock screen wallpaper will occasionally disappear and be replaced by a solid black background. All the text/graphics (clock, step counter, notification bar) will still be there, white letters on a black field. The first time was about a week after the OTA, and it's happened 4-5 times so far.

When it goes black, I am no longer able to change the lock screen wallpaper. The menu comes up, and I can see all the pictures available, but selecting one and hitting "Set Wallpaper" simply returns me to the home screen without actually making the change. The black wallpaper will persist until I restart the phone. I have seen no other issues of any kind from the phone when the anomaly occurs, and my home screen wallpaper (which is different from my lock screen) is unaffected.

Nokia :: E71 / Hangs Intermittently / External Speaker Crackles

Jun 4, 2010

I've had my e71-1 for only a couple of months now and noticed that it randomly hangs during menu navigation and especially when either trying to make a call or ending a call (most noticeable when 'number busy' is displayed). It can take at least 5-10 seconds for the phone to respond at which point it suddenly cycles through multiple functions due to me having pressed various buttons to try to get it to respond during the hang.I have tried two different firmware versions (400.21.013 and 410.21.010; I'm currently using the latter) and this phenomenon occurs on both. I have not installed any additional apps/games. And the phone has loads of on board memory still free as well as the 8GB memory card that is encrypted despite being virtually empty.I am at a loss trying to get this problem resolved. It's quite annoying saying 'goodbye' to a person and then you can't end the call immediately. I've done a forum search but have not found any way to fix this.Moreover and totally unrelated (I think), there seems to be something wrong with the external speaker on the phone. When I navigate around the menus, the beeps emitted are often crackly. This can also occur when I receive confirmation beeps. Despite this, the quality of the speaker is actually good when it works. The phone hasn't been exposed to any water or even out in the rain so this surely is a build problem?

BB Tour 9630 :: Browser Hyperlinks Intermittently Not Working

Apr 22, 2010

I have a BB Tour 9630 (Verizon) and have an issue with the hyperlinks within the browser sometimes not working. My cursor recognizes that it is over a link and switches to the "hand" indicator however, When I click the trackball to select nothing happens. If I scroll up or down on the page I can sometimes then go back to the link and it will work and they sometimes even work the first time. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to the problem at all. I am sure that it isn't my trackball or sensitivity settings as it functions perfectly in all other areas outside of the browser. I have tried using the Firefox browser instead of BB, I have wiped the phone, rebooted several times and Verizon even replaced the phone for me for this issue. Nothing has helped. I have had two other Tours prior to these last two that did not exibit this problem. Since I am seeing this on another handset I suspect it could be a software issue or possibly related to an app. I currently have 11 apps loaded (NBC, Hockey News, Buzz Me, BerryTourch, Google Maps, Weather Bug, Fidelity Online, The Weather Channel, PHH (Fleet Vehicle), ScoreMobile, and XM / Sirius Radio) and I am running OS v5.0.0.591. Anyone know of any issues with the software or app related causes for this? Anybody else even seen this?

Galaxy S5 :: Phone Charging Intermittently And Acts Like It Is Being Unplugged?

Jan 2, 2015

My S5 recently has had issues with charging. I took it into the store thinking it was the charger that needed to be replaced. No. No visible damage or debris in the charging port or charger. No water or other damage - it has been kept in an Otterbox since the moment I bought it.

When I plug it in, sometimes it does nothing. No matter how long I let it sit or how full the battery is charged, it does not charge. I've tried different outlets, plugging the USB into the computer, charging with phone turned off, and pretty much all of the troubleshooting tips I could think of or find online. Other times it begins to charge only to stop and resume charging multiple times, as if being unplugged repeatedly. It does this so rapidly sometimes that it has killed my battery faster than not charging it at all. I was about to send it to Samsung when I decided to try it all again, including taking a needle to the charger and port to clear it out, when it suddenly worked again. Now, about a week later, back to square one. Sometimes it won't charge at all, other times it charges intermittently.

Motorola Atrix 4G :: Losing Microcell Connection Intermittently?

Nov 29, 2011

I have a Microcell in my office. The 3G and EDGE signal is -100 or worse, so there's no conflict there. The wifi signal in my office is low, ~-80db, and often disconnects/reconnects. Every once in a while my Atrix (stock gingerbread) loses the microcell connection completely and continues to have no network connection. The wifi connection stays connected though. I have to enable and then disable airplane mode to get the connection back up.

IPhone 5s :: Back Lighting Works Intermittently / Touchscreen Works

Jun 4, 2014

My phone has been acting up since installing the latest iOS 7.1.1. The back lighting for the screen works intermittetly. I have been able to get it to come back on by turning the phone off and back on, but not every time. Once I enabled VoiceOver through Siri and turned ScreenCurtain On and Off. Other times, just clicking the home button and a few times on a notification that would turn the back lighting on. The phone seems to want to respond to turning the back lighting on, but does not do it every time it should. It usually takes 10 - 30 minutes of me working with it to get it to come back on. The phone has not been dropped and is in an Otterbox case.
