I opened my brand new Evo Shift yesterday and activated it. The phone is a piece of ****. The phone literally will not work unless its plugged up to either a computer or the wall charger. Whenever it is unplugged the phone will freeze within 5 minutes and require a hard reset to use again. I have no explanation for it and there does not seem to be anyone on the internet reporting the same problems. Anybody have an idea?

I updated the frimware/PRL/Profile and still the same problems.

Hi, newshift.
Welcome to the forum. Wow, unfortunately ... hiccups like those sometimes happen.

That's a good phone and it might just be one of those mishaps happening with the device. Since it's new you could do a ""Reset" of the device before doing anything else(That's the first thing Sprint will instruct you to do).

*Note*
When first use any device it's recommended to charge the battery for at least 4 to 6 hrs before using. Or keep the device charging while using.

Best of luck.

Yeah, take it back. Why bother trouble shooting something that is mere hours old that is an obvious defect.
