Touch Randomly Powering Off??????? Upate 03-10-09

Anybody else having this issue. It started on Friday. I received 3 picturemail messages, checked them and then put it down. About 2hrs later when I went to call my son it was off completely. So I powered it back on, made 3 calls and put it down again. Powered off again. I power it back up and delete the last 3 programs I installed: mort's mortscript, WVD, and the Google Gears update. Rebooted. After 10min it powered off again. So I did a Hard Reset then used SPB Backup to reinstall all my old programs without those I just listed. Powered off 20min after the reinstall was done.

I also noticed that some of the tweaks I had down to my phone using "Touch Pro Essentials" thread were undone, specifically the "NoSMSSent" tweak. Not only was it not working, but it also wouldnt let me install the tweak again using Resco Registry or TF3D Config. I had to install Diamond Tweak (which I havent used in months) in order to redo that hack.

So I used Clean Temp to help clean my registries of bad entries. It seemed to work, although it kept trying to get me to uninstall registry edits for some of the programs I use. So it worked all day Sunday and Monday with no issues. I go to reinstall WVD and 101min later the phone powers off again. WTF?????

I'm gonna uninstall Diamond Tweak and TF3D Config.Then maybe use SK Tools to try and clean up the registry hacks. Then reinstall those programs.

Is anyone else having issues with there TP randomly powering off?

Re: Touch Randomly Powering Off??????? Upate 03-5-09

Apparently the suttingoff happens immediately if I put my phone down to hard. No mind you, I take great care of my phone, so I'm not putting it down hard at all. But if it bumps just slightly, it shuts off.

Anybody got any ideas?

Exactly what I was thinking.

Does it happen if you shake the phone hard?

Sounds like a trip to the Sprint store is in order. I vaguely remember having a gadget when I was young that did something similar, where if I bumped it slightly the thing would just reset. Something on the board must be loose or whatever, if it isn't your battery that's messed up. If you don't have insurance, you best open up the TP and check every solder.

Re: Touch Randomly Powering Off??????? Upate 03-5-09

Took forever to be helped in the store. Left the phone with them and going back to get it in a hour. They get on my nerves over there. I told the girl what I thought might be wrong and she was like I'm not gonna put that in the report because they may blame you for it. So I appreciate that, but if I don't tell you what's wrong and you cant fix it, then what?

So then she kept asking me if I had the hone backed up because they may have to HR it and I told her yes. So then she say's "Are you sure"? I sya yes again. Just wnat to be clear because some people dont understand that we have to do that sometimes. If I can tell you what's wroong with the damnd phone, dont you think I know how to back it up?

So I told her I use SPB Backup and she said I have no idea what that is. Then she said she los t her BB and she couldnt get anything back on it. So I asked her "did you have it back up"????? DAMN SPRINT
