Re: N79 - Intermittent freezing problems

[ Edited ]

I am certain now that the problem is with the keypad. The phone is not hang. It is still running. Just that the keys will not response to any input.

 

I know because when I am playing a game, and the keypad freezes, I can see the game is still running but I cannot move anything. Also when the keypad freezes, a call can still come in but I cant answer it. Also if you open the camera door, the camera app would come on. You can even sync when it is frozen.

 

The problem is with the keypad.

Re: N79 - Intermittent freezing problems

That's exactly what the problem is.

To tell the truth,2 of the users have solved the problem by themselves.

They changed the keypad all by themselves without the help of the NOKIA.

I don't wanna take the risk to change it by myself.

 

How about you?

Re: N79 - Intermittent freezing problems

Same problem. I reinstalled the software (11.049) again twice, I did every kind of reset more than once, I changed my sim card, I tried by using the phone without micro sd memory, I deleted all messages, all pictures, all themes and all music but I still can't use my phone. I bought it on dec 13th, after a week I had to bring it back to the shop where I bought it because it suddently swiched off and I couldn't turn it on, it was completely "dead". They gave me a new phone, I used it 3 weeks and then the display started flashing and at last it became black and I had to bring the phone back to the shop again. They fixed it, I collected it again 1 week ago, I updated the software because they didn't do it and the following day it starded freezing exactly how you described in this discussion. Sometimes it also slides the menu continuosly and I have to switch it off to stop it. I can't use it, it freezes continually!!! I hope they'll solve the problem soon or I'll claim my money back and buy a better phone, I'm fed up. :smileymad:

Re: N79 - Intermittent freezing problems

staicueduard - there is another thread for 11.049 bugs - /discussions/board/message?board.id=swupdate&message.id=47432&query.id=625628#M47432

 

 

 

 

Yesterday my phone never encounter the keys freezing. For a moment I thought the problem went away but this morning the problem came back and its worse than ever. Now I remove the battery to reset it and maybe make one call before the problem start again. Its more frequent now and nearer apart. Which is good I guess this way I can show the workshop the problem.
