[Q] New Phone w/ screen flashing on and all black? software errors?
Well, I'm not a developer or even that knowledgeable of today's mobiles. I bought the S4 yesterday. Been setting it up, checking things out. Then it seemed things just went downhill...on day 2. The date/time widget disappeared. Phone failed all internet activity. I would set wallpaper to Live which worked fine, to later switching to a blue screen (not the PC blue screens..ha). Screen then started to have a conniption. Flashing
from a black screen, but had the notification bar, to the new blue home screen. I chatted with Samsung online, they advised that there are software issues and to return it. The guy at the VZW store was a great proponent to this phone. He told me where to go, what to do to root my phone, but did add that it voids the warranty, as a jussayin. I need to get those unwanted space hoggers off, as I only have the 16GB.
I will return it tomorrow, but is this something we can expect from today's 4th Generation technology? My last phone, Droid Charge, did similar things. My 2 years isn't up with that phone.
