My Touch Pro made me 30 mins late to work this morning!!

Last night, I set up my phone like I always do before bed... turn off text alert, set alarm, close all programs, put on charger. I set the alarm for 6:20 like I always do for Saturday cuz I have to be at work at 8:00.

Well my wife wakes me up in a panic saying that it's 7:22!! I was like yeah right my alarm hasn't even gone off yet... well sure enough her clock says 7:22. So I look at my phone and the first thing I notice is that the white LED's are completely off, even though it is sitting right on the charger. I took it off the charger and hit the power button to wake it up. I thought I was the victim of the Windows alarm bug... but the damn thing didn't even turn on. Pushed the soft reset button, nothing happened. Held the power button... nothing. After a couple tried of holding down the power button, it finally booted up.

How the h3ll did my phone completely shut itself off in the middle of the night?? I didn't have any programs running. The battery was fully charged, so I know it didn't run out of juice! Even when the phone is completely off it is still supposed to show the charging LED's. Has anyone else had something like this happen??

Actually last night believe it or not.
I was at my friends house and I decided to charge over usb, I look and its not even charged!
I open up nuePower to see that it says 50% but discharge is higher than charge...
Hopefully I can get this damn thing to charge here, cause my charger is at home.

Same thing happened to me twice yesterday. The phone just went dead by itself.

I firmly believe this is the nature of anything electrical/mechanical. They'll always do odd stuff all on their own, with no interference from the user...

Yea, My phone has done that with a rom (Ivan black) and one from a kitchen. It could freeze to a black screen. Be unresponcive, then when I would soft-reset it, and would freeze on the Logo screen, then I would soft reset it, and what do you know, It Hard reset itself. DOH!

Im using dream 1.2, and it has been super stable, and fast.

Never trust this phone for anything important.

It's a toy with lots and lots of bugs.

Re: My Touch Pro made me 30 mins late to work this morning!!

haha I have my phone on automatic, so it goes on vibrates during appointments. Well I set work as an appointment so it has been going to vibrate automatically.

Well I must have hit one of the volume up or down buttons on the side at one point of the day, cuz when I was on a call(work phone) with a client, my cell phone goes off. Now, my ringtones are usually hardcore or ridiculous songs so it was sorta embarassing when "WHO YOU F***ING NOW?!!?!" goes off in the middle of the office. LUCKILY my boss is on vacation this week cuz her cube is diagnol from me.

I have had the hard reset problem twice. Any ideas what is causing it? How much do you backup with Sprite? All settings? Does that work for Exchange/mail settings as well?

Re: My Touch Pro made me 30 mins late to work this morning!!

A cheap alarm clock by the side of the bed with an internal battery backup never fails me

That's just too much crap to change every night... I'm lazy I just hit vibrate when I go to work.
