Somewhat off topic...but not totally
Charge port on my N1 started acting goofy...had to wiggle the charge plug a little to get the charge cycle going, with 3 different chargers.
Called Google support, they handed me to HTC after some troubleshooting.
HTC took my CC info and sent me another phone. I get the new phone, after being on for about 10 mins it rebooted itself. I shrugged it off thinking maybe an update occurred while I wasn't looking. The next day, I took it from my pocket, it was off. I again shrugged it off thinking I might have accidentally turned it off. Would be kind of hard to do accidentally, but possible.
A little later I was surfing with the N1, it rebooted as it was loading phonedogs website. Now its all coming together...the original reboot and it being off in my pocket. Over the next day, the auto-reboots came more and more often. I called Google back, he had me factory reset it, as it was rebooting after the reset, it auto-booted again, with the rep on the phone. He sends me to HTC, HTC starts to process another exchange, then tells me he can't do another swap until the original ticket clears. I was somewhat miffed. But, what could I do. I even offered to let them put another $529 hold on my card, on top of the current one. I had just sent the original phone back that day, which was Monday. Today, the ticket finally cleared, another phone should be on its way, although, I haven't received tracking info, so I probably wont see it till Monday. Meanwhile, I went to AT&T and used an upgrade to get a phone to hold me over...a Palm Pre Plus. WebOS is cool, but the phone is slllooooww compared to the N1.
Here's hoping N1 #3 is a good one!
