    OS 4.5.0.77 worked fine, but now...

    Advertisement



    I am running os 4.5.0.77 on my Sprint 8830, and it has run beautifully for about a month now. Now, when I answer a phone call, it goes to speakerphone for the first second or two of the phone call. Is this a common issue? What can I do to resolve this?

    This has been an issue since the .66 release I believe. It is a known issue though.

    My Curve does this as well - Sprint 8330. I also have a 8830 and it usually switches to speaker when a bluetooth headset is used to answer the call.

    What is there to do about it? Nothing? I've done two battery pulls so far, but no luck in fixing it.

    What is odd about my situation, at least I believe it's odd, is that the phone didn't do this for the first month. When the heck will Sprint come out with an official update. Why are the U.S. carriers so reluctant to put out the official update for OS 4.5? All of the European carriers have done it. Don't the U.S. carriers know that cool phone companies put out updates? Geez...

    It's a beta version. We just have to deal with it since we decided to install a version not finalized yet. Has your contact searches gone crazy yet? You will search for names that you know are in there but they won't appear. Also if you add new ones they go to the end instead of alphabetical. Battery pull usually fixes it. Also memory leaks and random drop signal. All fun of the beta!

    What is a memory leak? Are they guaranteed to happen? Should I reinstall the system if it does happen?

    Do we all want perfection in beta software?

    Well, do we?

    this is under investigation by rim now. this is basically caused by a lag in the phone not changing from the external speaker when it is ringing to the internal speaker when you answer the call. it is usually a 1-3 second delay, and the speaker is not actually on speaker phone, just a lag when changing from ne to the other.

    What exactly is a memory leak? Is there a fix for it?

    a memory leak is the phones internal brain and it slowly gets drained out usally by something then whe its all gone your phone will not call out or tex or do just about nothing the only memory leaks i have ever had are from third party appys or the docs to go were a huge memory leak i have been running .81 since it was out and like i said i loaded the new docs to go and there was my memory leak

    before your bb gets too low on memory it will do an emergency memory cleaning. it will delete phone logs,messages and probably a few other things but those are the ones you will notice.it's a good idea to keep an eye on your memory(options>status>file free) and do a battery pull every day or so.

    Every day huh? Wow. I've had 4.5.0.77 on my phone since the beginning of September, and it was working fine until about a week ago.

    It says that I have 10,057,025 bytes free. I have a 1 gb card in my phone. Ergo, it doesn't seem like the memory has begun to "leak" yet. When should I begin to worry? Is a memory leak guaranteed to happen?
