    Ghost Phone

    Advertisement



    My phone keeps doing random things on its own. I've had the phone a couple months now and just a couple days ago it started doing random things on its own. I always just keep it in my pocket with the key lock on and have never had a problem until now. The other day it called 911, which isn't that hard to believe because of the 911 settings on the phone but lately it has been unlocking and sending blank emails to itself. Also, it will pull up random websites. Almost seems like it has a virus. Don't know if that is possible. Anyone else having this problem?

    Not having any problems with my Pearl over here, I imagine you tried a hard reset(battery out wait 30 seconds, reinsert)?

    Maybe try reloading your OS, if a hard reset isnt doing anything.

    Well I can honestly say that mine's been doing strange things also. I keep getting draft blank emails on my phone. This morning @ 7:07 am it decided to call one of my friends. I know for a fact that I didn't dial the number. I also get the random vibration. It only does it 1x but makes me search to see where it came from and there is nothing active. Glad to see that I am not the only one having "ghostly" issues.

    I thought I was going crazy. The last day or so mine slowed to a crawl, would captalize the wrong letters when typing, trackball not move when I moved it and a few other things.

    Just a quick update. Pulling the battery seemed to fix my issues above. I hope they dont come back.

    It seems I am resetting my Pearl weekly for some reason or another.

    I reset my Pearl at least once every day. You know what they say, a reset a day keeps you from having to deal with any annoying crap from your phone. : )

    Be careful. They're becoming self aware.

    I did do a reboot and I haven't had any issues so far, however I check it like every 2 secs to make sure it isn't acting a fool.
