IPhone :: 4 Is Shutting Itself Off Intermittently?

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 :: 3GS Intermittently Drops 3G And Displays SOS Only
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 :: Music Will Intermittently Stop Playing
The music on my phone will intermittently stop playing.It will play one or 2 songs and then go silent.Other things still make noise but the music will just stop playing.I have to just try and replay several times and then it starts working again.I cannot recreate it at the Apple store since it does not happen all the time.Anyone else having this problem?

IPhone :: 4 Intermittently Losses WiFi Connection
I have a private WiFi network at home. The iPhone can see the network and it has the correct password.

Sometimes when I glance down at my iPhone it seems to have lost the connection and reverted back to 3G. I can manually force it to regain the wireless network in the normal way but it's rather annoying.

I've reset my router and I've also reset the network settings on the iPhone. Neither of these things semms to work.

IPhone :: Home Button Working Intermittently On IOS 5.1
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?
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
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?
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
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.

Nokia :: CK-7W - Intermittently Buzzing
Just picked up my new car which already had a CK-7W Car kit installed in it and it works fine in terms of connectivity.

I have my N95 8GB paired up nicely and the wife has her Samsung U600 paired up too.

Problem is, intermittently when starting the engine, I get a buzzing coming out of the speakers and when you drive with the buzzing, it almost mimicks the revs of the engine and almost sounds like your driving in a computer game.

IPhone :: 3GS Keeps Shutting Down?
My iPhone 3gs keeps turning itself off, then the apple logo turns up for like 3 minutes, and then it goes onto the lock screen and i go to unlock it and it just turns itself off again. It doesnt find reception and the battery goes in like 1 hour from 100% to 0. It also gets really really hot.

IPhone :: 4S Shutting Off Itself
Just bought it less than a week ago, from the Apple store. It's shut down on its own twice - just going straight off. Plus has rebooted alone at least once that I know of. Is this defective or is there a software problem with the OS?

BB 8830 WE :: USB Interface Intermittently Not Working
the USB interface on my BB seems to be not allowing the plugin to fit snuggly thus causing intermittent disconnects, reboots, etc. happens with other cables and on other computers.question: does one take it back to the place of purchase or send it in to Verizon? Do they give replacements or is one just left without a phone for awhile?

BB Torch :: 9800 Reboots Intermittently For Nothing
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...

LG :: Xenon GR500R Intermittently Turns Itself Off
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?

HTC Desire HD :: Keeps Turning Itself Off - Intermittently Staying On
I've had my HTC Desire HD for just under 2 weeks and it keeps turning itself off. It goes through phases - it will be ok for a couple of days then today for example - I keep putting it to one side after using it and then pick it up again and it has turned 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.

IPhone :: 4 Keeps Shutting Down About 5 Times A Day?
Ive never dropped or spilled anything on my phone, and i've only had it for less than 7 months. It will randomly turn off and I will try to restart it. It freezes on the restart screen so i usually have to restart it again. Also, sometimes the screen will spit for a couple of seconds but thats minor compared to it shutting off on me 5 times a day. Im thinking its a hardware glitch, but at the same time i'm not very tech savvy! Im wondering if i have to pay for it and what's the process of them fixing/replacing my phone? Im a student and everything i have is on my phone so im really hoping i wont be without a phone for a week or so just so they can figure out the problem!

IPhone :: Why Is 3gs Randomly Shutting Off
Okay so i got a gamestop refurbished iPhone 3gs and yesterday everything was working out great and the phone was working fine. Today on the other hand, i encountered my phone randomly shutting off by itself. Once it did it when i opened the camera app and the others were from txt messages or using the internet. The battery was around 50% or so too so it was far from a dead battery. Once the phone shuts off, sometimes i can reboot the phone and other times i need to plug it in to reboot.

IPhone :: 4S - Shutting Down When Using The Camera App?
My brand new iphone 4s has been shutting down all by itself whenever I try to take a video on the camera app. It is not the battery, my battery is charged, and it only happens when using the camera app. I can take pictures and my phone will stay on, but whenever I take videos it turns off. Does anyone know why this happens or what I should do about it?

Nokia :: CK15W Car Kit Intermittently Mutes During Call
I installed my new Nokia CK-15W a few weeks back and haven't really had any cause to be upset until recently when the car kit intermittently mutes and un-mutes the microphone without me pressing anything. Has anyone seen similar? as I say it was working fine so I don't suspect the wiring, but it is driving me mad!

Nokia :: N73 Unknown Icon Appearing Intermittently
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.

Nokia :: PC Suite Freezes Vista I/o Intermittently
Installed PC Suite with the most recent download. Syncing via BT or cable appears to work with E71x and Outlook, although I've not looked carefully at the data.

My problem appears to be the ServiceLayer service that is associated with PC Suite. While running, the PC will intermittently freeze all i/o (screen, keyboard, mouse, audio) for a second or two as often as every minute. Stopping the service fixes the problem. Unfortunately, starting/stopping the service to use the PC or sync isn't a practical option. The problem occurs independent of the phone being connected.

BB Bold 9700 :: Why LED Intermittently Flashes Purple?
I have been doing some research, but haven't found a thread/web page that answers my question.Today I noticed that my Blackberry Bold 9700 LED intermittently flashes purple. No new texts, emails, tweets, facebook messages or other activities occur. No data is being downloaded either.I am lead to believe from my research that this purple LED is activated when a new instant message is received. This is odd, as I am not logged in to any messenger application (Blackberry Messenger, nor Windows Live Messenger).Any thoughts?

BB Bold :: Trackpad On 9700 Works Intermittently
The trackpad on my Blackberry Bold 9700 works intermittently. I've:

- Updated the software OS 6.
- Done a hard reset.
- Done multiple soft resets.

I also tried cleaning the trackpad with paper (read somewhere that it's the oils on fingers that causes the problem).
