Samsung Rugby3 freezing and rebooting when editing contact or adding contact to SIM card?

Hello. I have a Samsung Rugby 3 and I have had it for about a month. I am having a problem with it freezing and rebooting. I bought my first Samsung Rugby 3 in early February, took it back for this freezing and rebooting problem that I am having an issue with. I got it replaced with the one I currently have.

When it arrived, it had an error where it didn't recognize it's own IMEI number, and therefor couldn't sync with the AT&T Address Book. I exchanged it with the seller, got another one, it did the same thing. In talking with the seller, they said their supplier was "working on it". While I was waiting for them to figure it out, I ordered, again from Amazon, but a different vendor, another Rugby III. This one came, and had the error described above. For me, it has been most often happening when I listen to MP3's. I can start an ...
