Shuts off???


Nov 12, 2007, 11:16 PM
Has anyone who has purchased this phone had any trouble with the phone turning off when you open of close the screen? I am on phone number four is less than a week...I cant be the only one having this issue. I love the phone and dont want to have to get a different device completely. I have even tried different t-mobile stores. HELP!!!

This just started happening to my slide. I called up t-mobile and they said its happening to everyone and that they are waiting for a full re-call from motorola... the best thing to do it call customer care and have then take your name and cell # down so if that does happen they will call you and let you know.
A rep. there said the best thing to do is wait out the 14 day period and call in for a new phone. Some tips are to don't slide it down hard, be gentle with it. Take your backlight down to 1 and take of the trackball to light up option off when sleeping. hopefully this will help !

If you guys have any updates please post.

Thanks !!

Good news. You can swap the Slide out for an LX (if you want an LX). Otherwise the fix has already been made and you will need to keep calling T-M to find out whether the fix is a hardware (phone) swap or a software download.

Hope that helps!
