[Q] Skyrocket freeze/shutdown on signal loss
Hi. Let's get right to it, shall we?
I was running a 4.3 Rom on my phone. Worked great while I was at my house though I did notice my signal seemed lower than before I installed it. But I didn't worry about it too much. Ran the Rom all weekend without any issues. Coverage in my city is pretty good, so I never had a signal drop.
I work in a pretty rural area of PA which causes me to lose my signal a couple of times while commuting there. So, on Monday when I got to work, I had a blank screen and all buttons were unresponsive. I did a hard reboot which went fine until the phone tried to reconnect to the network. Then it went back to the blank screen and forced another hard reboot.
Thinking this was an issue of cm10.2, I went home and reloaded a 4.2 Rom. Again, it worked great until the next day when I returned to work. Then the shutdown/freeze issue arose again. So I went to stock 4.1.2 with stock kernel and radio. No extra apps, nothing. The only thing custom on my phone was the recovery. Anyway, I still had the same problem.
As long as I don't lose my signal, my phone works awesome. And it's not the loss of signal that's bad, it's when the phone reaquires the signal that it breaks. I went to AT&T and discussed with a rep but I seemed to know more about phones than he did ( his words, not mine ) and I couldn't reproduce the problem because, of coarse, there was a perfect signal at the store.
So, I'm asking for thoughts, ideas, and suggestions on how I might fix this problem or what might be wrong. I respect and appreciate, any help I might get from this fine community. Thank you all in advance.
