    So this phone is proving to be a POS. I got the Charge yesterday After 4 years of Blackberries) Rebooted once and didnt really take issue with it. Now, on day two, its reboooted 4 times, it is lagging and I have no sounds for anything. I havent added anything to the phone other than Droid Facebook and USAA mobile banking. WTH? Did I do something wrong?

    Sounds like you should exchange it. Mine has been trouble free for the 4 weeks I've had it.

    Sounds like you have a bad phone which can and does happen a lot. Exchange it. I have had the charge for several days with no problems. The thunderbolt was full of problems.

    What these guys said. The Charge has had no issues like you described. You somehow received a defective device.

    That would be my luck...

    I called Vz and they had me do a hard reset and it seems to be fine now...but I'm going to return it within 14 days if it does it again.

    Better to have bad luck than a phone poorly designed. Right?

    i had the sound problem too,a reboot did the trick.coming from blackberry as well..we had to automatically reboot after a program was installed,or uninstalled so if u DL a few apps make sure to reboot within 48 hours or so..hopefully this fixes our problem,im in the same boat i have 12 days to return or exchange so im going to keep an eye on this

    I have usaa and no issue with me. So its not the app.

    ON a side note I have had mine since release and have no issues with mine. The wife on the other hand is on her 3rd one.

    1st wine had a bad ear speaker it would crackle and distort when people would talk. 2nd one had a bad home key when you pushed it down it would not reset.

    Her 3rd is working fine other than all the bloat in it. Im running gummy's ROM adn its fast especially without all the other crap that VZ sticks in it.

    I would exchange the phone.
