8320 Auto On/Off Big Bug?
I played around my 8320 when I first received it, and it tried the Auto On/Off feature by setting it to: Turn on at 07:00 and Turn off at 23:00 on Weekdays.
I then disabled it again on the next day, and discovered a funny notification every time I try to turn off the device. It always prompts me a message: 'The device is scheduled to turn on at [next_day] 07:00'
and two options below the message: 'Turn Off' and 'Full Power Off'
I have tried literally everything:
- Repeat the auto on/off disabling
- Set the auto on/off to 00:00 for auto on and auto off, for weekdays and weekend
- pull out battery many times for various reasons
- Upgrade the software!!
- Search the forums (which I found some similar issues with no resolution)
I may sound minor, but I feel annoyed by such a small silly thing I cannot get rid of. It sounds impossible (or dare i say silly) for RIM to produce such a huge, obvious bug in the program.
I would really, really, really appreciate if somebody could provide tips to get rid of that silly thing. Thank you in anticipation.
Have you tried doing a backup/restore with a backup made while the auto on/off was turned off?? Hope this helps . . .
The notification message keeps prompting because I have a daily alarm set to 07:00 every weekday, as simple as that! I should have thought harder about it.
I tried disabling the alarm and it doesn't show up now.
Thanks anyway, tbassman.
