    Send/receive arrows in a frozen state, draining battery

    Advertisement



    I had the strangest thing happen. I never keep any programs running in the background, I like to save my battery life. This afternoon, I sent some emails, ran "I Heart Radio" for a little bit and checked my tweets. All of this was late this afternoon and I had at least 80 percent battery life left. About 90 minutes later, my battery was at 20 percent. I couldn't figure out at first what was going on. I made sure all programs were closed. It was still a mystery when I realized that the send/receive arrows were in a permanent state. They weren't moving at all, no flashing, just there. I double checked my programs and finally decided to do a soft reset to resolve the problem. Has anyone experienced this issue yet?

    It happens. There are bugs in firmware, bugs in apps, bugs that only show up with some apps on some firmwares or some devices.
    I wouldn't rely on a soft reset. Pull the battery.

    I have had this happen before. I pulled the battery out for about 15 to 20 seconds and it worked again.
