    Yup, I'm getting the blank screen that a lot of other T720 users are
    now getting. It all started to happen while I was on vacation. The
    face plate screen would not show the correct time, if so it was all in
    garbled text. Sometimes it would be just dot like characters rather
    than 'field mode' expresses.

    Tomorrow, I am going to the Cingular kiosk to ask for a replacement.
    I sure hope that they will take it for a fair exchange. I certainly
    should not have to pay for another phone because their crappy hardware
    isn't working like they thought.

    Firstly, I'm going to have them replace the battery. Perhaps that has
    something to do with the screen going blank or locking up. Next I'm
    going to have them update the firmware to a more updated release. And
    lastly, I'm going to swap the sam chip with another phone to see if
    that has anything to do with my experiences with this useless hunk of
    junk.

    Any suggestions that could be repaired at home now, rather than
    waiting for some college kid sales person just looking to make more
    money from me at the store?

    TIA

    Re: Blank Screen sometimes, screen locks up

    first off i resent the remark about some college kid as i am in college at
    the moment and have worked for radio shack for over 3 years now and have had
    better customer service and sales than most full timers.

    That said, the blank screen wont be fixed with a new battery or changing the
    sim card from one phone to another. The only way to fix the problem is get a
    new phone and/or update the firmware of the phone.
