    I know there is a problem thread but, I don't want this to be buried under everything else. I got the EVO3D on Friday and had all sorts of problems such as freezing, unresponsive power button, and the phone just crashing. Then I downloaded the updates and now the power button responds and there has only been minimal freezing. Is phone crashing normal? Is the phone freezing normal? I should note that I have been using the hell out of the phone and even then I have not got a lot of freezing. Should I be concerned, or is it just like all technology? This is my very first smartphone so, any help would be great appreciated.

    I would take it to sprint and see what they can do from their end and if it's defective or not.

    So freezing and crashing is normal? I ask this because a computer can freeze on you while using it why can't a smartphone.

    Well, smartphones can. But it's a problem with software and how the android OS works, it will only crash or lock-up when it's reloaded. Android works with at a 'kernel' level which is at the CPU level rather than the user level. It controls the processor clock as well as the RAM by itself so it shouldn't be overloaded easily. Do you use a task killer?

    Thanks for the replies guys, I took it to my local Sprint store and they could not figure out the problem so, they gave me a new EVO3D. I have now had my new EVO3D for almost 24 hours, and is running super smooth.
