i'm trying to decide between this phone & the alias 2. so far i'm leaning towards this phone. however, i have noticed several reviews of ones saying the phone shuts off automatically. i asked a VZW rep about this & they said it's a software issue & if you get it updated, it will stop. has anyone had VZW update their software to correct this problem & did it work?

Also sometime my wallpaper will change by itself and I will have question marks where all my pictures are supposed to be eventually it goes away but kinda aggravating to keep having to reset your wallpaper all the time. As far as getting hot when talking, I have noticed that mine will get warm if i talk for @ 7 minutes, not hot, but definitely warm. But a lot of phones i've had do that. I think its radiation. lol. not good. Ne Ways hopes this helps if you havent already purchased the phone. If Not I'd go Droid!!!!!!!!
