Ever since the first day I began using my SideKick 4G, I have been experiencing the following issues.
- I will send a text message sometimes and find out later that the recipient had replied to my txt, and I had simply never received their text. This issue happens A LOT, where I do not receive text messages that people send me. The phone says I have good signal, and everything appears to be fine besides the fact that I do no receive anything anyone sends me at random times in the day.
- My phone will also delete a text message I am typing, while I am typing it, and return to the main text message screen. This is EXTREMELY ANNOYING, and happens constantly to the point where I give up trying to respond to a message and just put the phone away.
- This also happens with the phone function, when attempting to make calls. It simply goes back to the home screen, preventing me from making phone calls.
- The phone will also send out texts hours after I originally wrote them, and sometimes will say it sent a message and never send it at all. These issues are leading to many cases of miscommunication, and can lead to a lot of unnecessary problems in peoples’ lives.
- The phone constantly freezes and restarts itself (while using applications, texting, taking pictures) which is beginning to get very annoying as well; it makes it hard to do anything with this phone.
These problems have been occurring with the phone since the day I got it, I've factory restarted it and the problems begin again within the same day or two. I have not dropped this phone at all.
