HELP:Sprint TP2 touchflo3d

I dont know to explain the issues that I am haveing very well but pls bear with me. Saturday I cut my phone on and it tried to begin activation. It would give me some error and go into some sort of loop. I figured if I hit cancel that it would stop and allow me to go to some sort of normal state. But it would not pull up my touchflo3d . If I wanted to txt I had to use the shortcut thru the keyboard. When I tried to txt it would freeze up. I tried a reset by removing the cover and hitting the red reset button. That didnt appear to do anything. I eventually gave up once I figured how to just get the phone to make basic call.

After a few hours, I received a call and the phone appeared to be back to normal, so I was happy again. Now today the same thing happened again.
I am not sure what caused this to happened. I did install 2 games and a rom for the 1% battery indicator. The only other thing I have done lately was switch the phone to CDMA only to try to conserve battery, not sure it did anything.


Please HELP.
I just want a normal functioning phone. I have been afraid to install all the custom stuff you smart guys post b/c I dont want to brick the phone and I am not that savy to do lots of fancy stuff.

Not sure if the Android ROM is stable but I am growing tired of WM alltogether.

Re: HELP:Sprint TP2 touchflo3d

I would suggest a hard reset. Sounds like a recent install might have corrupted/conflicted with something else.

You could try uninstalling programs one by one, but by that point I think a hard reset is your best option. Once its reset and you have all your contacts re-entered, I would then suggest backing up your phone with a back-up program ( I use Resco back up).

After that, take some care to monitor your phone how it acts after each new install. you might find the culprit that way and if it starts to crash again, you can use your saved back up to get your phone back to a state you can work with it.

Not that I know of, but then again I'm not sure if there are Windows Mobile Viruses.

This might sound harsh, but if your new to this I'm inclined to say that the problem is probably operator error and software retrieved from questionable sources. That said, you might not be installing what you think are.

Only install software you trust and make sure to follow the steps as specified. WM is a fairly powerful environment but it demands a greater understanding of how the system works if you want to tweak and get the most out of it. Take it slow and steady and you should have no issue. I hope this helps!

No.

I'm suggesting a hard reset.

This will reset your phone to the original factory condition. Your phone will be wiped clean and reinstalled with the original settings and software it came with out of the box. You will lose any and all data installed by you. This includes any programs, tweaks, contacts, and files you have installed or put in.

Proceed at your own risk.

Re: HELP:Sprint TP2 touchflo3d

Back up your phone with Microsoft myphone, it will back up your contacts, texts, etc. After that, you can do the clear storage, it's the same as a hard reset and will bring you back to stock. Just google microsoft myphone and follow the instructions, that will help you backup your contacts, or heres a link. http://sn1-p1.myphone.microsoft.com/...t.po?mkt=en-US

Phone is not stable enough to install anything. I though I heard there is a way to save contacts to the SIM card.
