Touch Pro 2 future problems

hello fellow geeks! Im sorta new to this wonderfull and helpfull community. I have a questions for those of you who have had the Touch Pro 2 for a long time now. What are the common problems with this ppc? We all remember the Touch Pro 1 problems that almost we all got. Like the dead keyboards are a 2 to 4 month use. And the oily screen from the lcd delaminating. And the chrome pealinf off. And finally the awful constant over heating that made the phone not charge at all. Now..... what are the common problems u all have come to a agreement that the tp2 has and will mostly have? Im about into 1 month with the tp2 and so far nothing has shownj up. knock on wood.

Re: Touch Pro 2 future problems

The keyboards are much better on these devices, I have only seen 1 or 2 cases since having the phone in september being mentioned. Beyond that the only damage to the phone is from me dropping it. If by the oily screen you are referring to newton ring, yes some devices have had it happen, but probably from sitting in the sun or being exposed to extreme conditions, not from normal use. Never had any chrome or paint peel off the phone. My phone doesn't overheat and everyone who has switched has mentioned similarly that it doesn't overheat like the tp1 (use an oem charger though to not risk destroying your phone). Beyond that I've had my phone since US release day and everything still works great.

If anything the only downside is when you get a tp2 it requires some personalization for it to really scream.

Re: Touch Pro 2 future problems

I had a tp1 and it sucked. I got the tp2 and it rocks. I really did have lots of the problems you are talking about. The tp2 upgrade to 6.5 for Sprint caused me more headaches than anything, but it seems people have figured out how to clean it up and tweak the problems. on a RARE occasion my phone will suddenly shut off and restart by itself....who the heck knows. I LIKE it LOTS. I don't foresee upgrading to anything else because it is more than enough phone for me!!!

Re: Touch Pro 2 future problems

so you can rule out the overheating issue and dead keyboard? looks like the real only issue here is possible the oily desalination on the screen that looks like a blob of a rainbow.
Also whats the main reason everyone took their phone in for a replacement?

Re: Touch Pro 2 future problems

The oil screen you mentioned is still a very persistent issue with the TP2. I have had 3 phones with this. Also, the microphone on the Verizon models seems to go out in some. These are the issues I have had. Just be very careful with the screen

Re: Touch Pro 2 future problems

I hate how many touch pro 2's I've went through. I'm not even hard on it at all. The only thing I do that apparently is a sin for this phone is put it in my pocket. If anyone has had the same phone since September/October....you have been extremely lucky.

The OP said knock on wood after his post. You didn't say that! I think you might have jinxed yourself
