Re: "Upgrade" 2.3.340 Issues

I would say that since you can note the issues started directly after the update then you should be able to hard reset your device which will then make you phone function as if the operating software had been freshly installed on a new device and downloading your content afterward. your pictures should be saved to your memory card and contact info saved to your gmail account. so you should have no worries there. Also, If you paid for any apps you are still ok as per google's policy paid apps follow your gmail account and can be re-downloaded free. This solved issues I had and my phone operates like a dream now. If this does not resolve your issue with memory card problems I would contact VZW for a replacement as something may have affected your memory card slot. as unbelievable as it may be yes these go bad sometimes.

I have had the 2.2.340 for a week now and here are the issues I have noticed so far.

 

 

 

The home screen has gone horizontal only once for me.

Fix: none, as this has only happened once to me.

 

 

My hard buttons at the bottom stop lighting up every once in a while.

Pressing the power button up top to put the phone in sleep, then back on solves.

 

 

Wifi seems to hang more often.

Turning wifi off then back on solves.

 

 

Screen brightness is dimmer sometimes when coming out of wake mode.

Pressing the power button up top again to put phone in sleep then on fixes it.

 

 

BT failed to sink in my vehicle even though it said it was, this has only happened once.

Manually dialed phone number and it forced a re-connect to my vehicles BT system.

 

These are minor issues to me but thought I would post them non the less. Just for reference, I came from 2.1.

Since the upgrade, I've had problems with the Gallery.  It won't load.  Anyone know of a fix for this?

Ever since I updated my X, I have lost the Market.  The shortcut is still there, but the app is gone from the Applications.  Can't even check to see if any of my apps need updating because it is gone.  Anyone else have this problem?

 

Also, If I do a hard reset, will the Market be downloaded again to my phone or will I need to take it in to the store and have them reinstall the software?

You would be best looking at this link.  It was a BIG issue after the update from 2.1 to 2.2.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Well it's been 5 days now and I can say without a doubt this update KILLED battery life!

My phone just shut down from a dead battery and I didn't spend 10 min. on the phone today.

It would last almost 24 hours before the update.

I recommend to try going to Settings-Applications-Manage Applications force closing gallery and clearing the cache.  Power your phone off and remove the battery for 30 seconds.

Had to pull the battery out and reboot every 5 minutes just to be able to make phone calls and check messages... it didn't help.
