2.3.3 .....blank screen
now that i have upgraded OTA to 2.3.3..phone has been acting weird....random freezes here and there but the thing that really pisses me off is after i get done with a phone Call...the screen will go blank and i can't get it to come Back on....only way to make it work again is to plug in into a charger and it will work again or pull battery and power back on...wtf lol.....anyone know what is going on???.....this just started few days ago
As soon as i use the phone to make a call, it will go blank and i cant get the screen to turn back on...I can still talk no problem but i just have a blank screen....

Having the exact same problem
I posted over at the google forums, I tried calling T-mobile (reprovisioning and hardware reset both failed to do anything useful) and then HTC, who thought it might be a hardware problem (duh, no, it's gingerbread.)
So maybe you and I have something in common that everyone else doesn't.. app?
My nexus one isn't rooted, I've only ever gotten OTA updates, so I'm thinking it's either an app or something else. Lookout?
here's the Google mobile thread - please reply there as well, let more people find the thread if they're going through the same thing?
I have posted in your Thread on Google support...
This is ridiculous...I have found the if you push the trackball then the power button when a call i recieved, you are sometimes able to keep the screen from turning off...But works 1/4 of the time...This is just out of control.......

I've been having a similar problem. My phone was working fine with Gingerbread. Great even, until yesterday, my gf called me from the store and when I picked up my phone, no slider bar to answer the phone, just blank screen. The soft buttons light up, but nothing on the display. It happened a second time later that day and the only thing I could do was take the battery out and reboot. It seemed fine until this morning when I tried to look at the time, again, the screen wouldn't come on.
I know it's working WHILE the screen is not responding, because I got the missed call notifications when my gf called and I could here the email notification in the morning.

I have not experienced this issue yet, I am having a small issue with the notification light in K-9 remaining selected, but other than that Gingerbread has been bulletproof for me.
Before applying the update, I did a factory reset on the device and then applied the update before re-downloading the apps I had on the device.
In my experience, (and it is not scientific) having a clean base to work with tends to prevent problems that might occur with a fairly big software update like Android 2.3.
Still havent gotten it fixed....Pulling the battery everytime is hella gay
anyone find what the issue is?
I uninstalled all my apps, did a reset and anything else...puled SD card and all...still does it...but if im plugged into a USB or on my car dock...it will work flawlessly..weird

I am looking for a solution for you. I recently had a N1 before i got the NS. But Just letting you know i'm on the look out for a fix for you. I know what it feels like not to find any answers to what you need. Hopefully Google is working on a newer update for bugs and random things such as your problem. Maybe the 2.4 update coming next month will help sort out any bug/ glitches.
Thank you..Much appreciated....
I tried damn near everything possible on a non rooted N1....sometime i might get lucky if i hit the trackball and power button at the same time for it to wake up during a phone call but thats if im lucky...if not, its the good ol' pull the battery out routine.

This is a problem with your specific phone and you need to get it repaired.
Either that or root it and load cyanogen on it to see if that will help.

Re: 2.3.3 .....blank screen
i have the same problem with my phone... i can call or receive a call but as soon as i use the phone apps, my phone is stuck there, frozen! and the only way to end a call is to remove the battery! i have read the previous post on this page and you're talking about a gingerbred update or something like that... just to let you know, i havn't done any updates on my phone before it start doing that... If i cant find anything on the web to help me with this problem i'll bring it to the store... but im sure they wont be able to fix it anyways

Re: 2.3.3 .....blank screen
I have research this problem inside and out. I have loged over 24 nonstop hours trying to fix this darn blank screen, and all I find are hundreds of gingerbread devices having the same blank screen issue. I think it is an issue with 2.3. my tablet wont even go to reboot and will not obey any core system comands. so if you say you havent had anyone complaining about this issue, you didn't look! cause they are every where begging for someone to help them, and nobody has an answer for the blank screen problem. I just baught mine a week ago. this is the same song alot of 2.3 (gingerbread) users are singing.
