    Curve restarts during call

    Advertisement



    Hello. I had this problem a couple of times last night while I was on the phone with my mom. I have only had the phone for a few days and haven't really talked on it for long periods of time at once yet. During the call, it restarted TWICE after talking for maybe ten minutes... the phone drops the call, then the screen goes white and the hourglass is there for about three minutes and then the phone comes back to life. It's almost like I'm doing a battery pull or something. What's going on? I have done a batt. pull since then and have not really tested it yet... I'm not sure if that fixed it or not, but what else could be causing this?

    That battery pull may have solved it Brooke... sometimes just resetting once every couple of days that way is a good way to keep things in order...

    Let us know if the issue persists though...

    Also which OS are you running? Are you on the latest one?

    My curve 8320 started doing the same thing right after I installed the new Opera 4 mini browser. Uninstalled Opera and the problem went away. strange...

    You know what? That might be it.

    I am running the newest OS but I did install Opera mini the other night and it kept giving me weird errors.

    I'm going to try to uninstall and then give it a try.

    Yep if all of this fails I'm just going to call them and see if they will replace it. Who knows, they may even replace it with the 8310...

    Thats why i always reccommend not buying refurbs...

    Start from a clean slate and just wipe the device and reload a clean OS

    Is there any difference in a battery pull and just pressing ALT + right SHIFT + BACKSPACE ?

    Re: Curve restarts during call

    My first Curve did this in June and July. Did it for the first week then went away and then conveniently didn't happen again until my 30 day trial period was up. At&t replaced it via warranty exchange and my second unit hasn't done this for four months. So, I think it's good to go.

    If none of the other solutions work then you may just have to warranty exchange it but that may work out for you.

    Good luck.

    Having the same issue, and my 8310 is only a few weeks old. It looks really bad when you suddenly drop off a conference call with head office in the middle of a sentece, and can't get back on for 4 minutes or so. My DOA replacement arrives tomorrow and I'll be shipping this one back. Hopefully the new one has no issues!

    Re: Curve restarts during call

    Any updates on this issue? I just received my Curve today and it's done a restart 3 times now. My immediate plan right now is to get rid of Opera to see if it helps and then probably order a new SIM...since I've had mine since 2001? lol.
