GS4G Problems Driving me nuts - can someone else confirm these?
I love this phone when it's working. That's WHEN.
Here is a short list of some of the various problems I'm having consistently with the phone. It would be great if anyone else can confirm if these are happening to them. Would be nice to see if this is a problem with the GS4G in general or just with my specific unit. TIA.
1. Wifi sometimes cannot be turned on. Clicking it on will just result in the word error apearing. Nothing more. A reboot will always fix this.
2. Bluetooth will regularly have to be manually connected to the Sync in my Ford and it will arbitrarily disconnect from Sync in the middle of calls. Never had any bluetooth issues with the Ford with my s740 for more than a year. It's not the car.
3. Ringtones and notification sounds magically stop working. They simply act as if they are playing, but don't. vibration does work. Rebooting will always fix this.
4. Google Navigator will only speak to me when it feels like it. It will stop speaking mid route or not speak at all when it doesn't feel like it. No idea how to fix this one. Reboots or restarting the app don't help. It's random.
The good news is GPS on this phone is GREAT. The screen is AMAZING. Most of the time it's pretty fast. It's a bit laggy sometimes thanks to the bloatware I think. I used link2sd and partitioned the memory card. Also the memory card in this phone is CLASS 2!!! I have a Class 6 on order so that should help.
ALL the problems existed prior to partitioning and installing link2sd and pror to rooting so that is not the cause of the trouble. I suspect the problems may be related to the limited rom and ram being overloaded and system processes crashing until reboot. I HOPE it's not defective hardware although I guess I'm still withint the 30 day return period so hope to sort it out and keep it rather than turn it in.
