Phone keeps waking up - killing battery

I've had this problem for a few weeks now. My phone will wake up the backlight and then turn itself off after a minute (per my battery settings). None of my notifications light the screen. I've done countless soft resets and hard resets. I've reflashed rom and upgraded rom (Mighty 4.7 to 4.8 to R3born)

Does anyone have any suggestions? I have nothing special installed, just garmin, finger keyboard 2.1, tsowen taskbar, diamond tweak, and TF3D config.

Try holding your phone on all four corners and give it a little twist one way and then the other and see if it wakes up. If it does then you probably have something wrong in the phone.

Re: Phone keeps waking up - killing battery

Sounds like a Gremlin Maybe time to go to the nearest Sprint store and get a replacement. Just show the Rep the problem and you will get a free replacement as long as the phone is under the 1 year warranty. If not, then you will just pay the deductible (as long as you have insurance) but the Diamond has been out less than a year so you will be fine.

If you have the original stock ROM and Radio, try upgrading to the new versions, 2.00 and 1.11 respectively. But may as well get a replacement and check that the new versions are downloaded, especially if you are running stock.

This is a common issue. There's nothing wrong with the phone. I have the same problem. It might have do with the phone switching back and forth between 1x and EVDO signals in certain areas. I had the same problem with my HTC touch too. Anyone have a fix for this for the diamond?

Re: Phone keeps waking up - killing battery

well if its common its pretty annoying. Its not a physical device problem and i'm not using the stock rom or radio. It might be a service thing but there should be a way to disable wakeup when the phone switches between evdo and 1x

Re: Phone keeps waking up - killing battery

Just leave it in 1x if you live in a poor signal area. Do a search for a thread by me called "Texting and Battery Life" and I think INTX posted a cab that uses a Mortscript to switch it. Also enable it in the registry key mentioned there.
