    Anyone heard of this? I am being shipped a new phone overnight, but
    I dont see any comments or views or questions/postings on the phone
    besides my own?

    Dumb question, but is there any way to tell when I get the new one,
    what to look for or certain things to do, to find out if its going to
    happen again?

    I've had the i760 since last August and have not had that happen. That is,
    if I understand what you mean by 'power cycling'....power off, then on?
    Where do you live? Are you perhaps traveling to areas where you temporarily
    lose signal?

    Re: i760 Power Cycling

    Why would the phone power off, due to loosing signal?

    If Nextel phones power off because of that, this contract is being
    terminated immediatly

    I've had this happen on my i530 and on the wife's i710. In both cases
    removing the battery and rubbing the contacts on the phone and the
    battery with a pencil eraser corrected the problem. I've taken to
    doing this on the first of the month as a preventative maintenance.

    Re: i760 Power Cycling

    Did you use the new SIM that came with it, or use your old one from the
    previous one, if there was one?

    I got 2 i560's recently, took my wifes 530 sim and put it in hers and it
    worked fine, put my 710 sim in the 560 and had the power cycling problem.
    When I used the new sim it was fine then the phone failed and they sent me a
    new one. Several reps have said swapping the sim was fine, but when I
    called Motorola IDEN support thay said nom use the new sim.

    The power on the phone has nothing to do with the signal. Losing signal
    will NOT power down the phone.

    Thanks for the reply's from everyone, right now I am still waiting on
    the replacement phone which they (Nextel) have fumbled around with
    since last Thursday, as of last evening I am supposed to have one
    being shipped to me and arrive today, LOLLOLOLOLOL ROFLMAO.
    In regards to cleaning contacts on the phone and battery for a phone
    that is 29 days old, well good suggestion, but I did this in the
    Marines for 21 years, if I have to do it on a NExTEL phone monthly ,
    termination of contract will take care of that. The one other person
    confirmed my suspicion in regards to loosing signal turning the phone
    off. I think they mass produce these things so fast in China there's
    no quality Control.

    THanks all

    Michael,

    The person who said that losing signal will shut off the phone is an idiot.
    There are a number of phones, including the i760, have what is called Direct
    Talk, which is an off-network walkie-talkie. It is designed for use when
    there is no signal. As for cleaning the contacts on a monthly basis, that
    was suggested as proventative maintenance. I have one user who has been
    using an i1000 for 7 years, and we have never had to do anything other than
    replace the battery a couple of times because they only last 2 - 3 years.

    I have had an I850 for about a month now. It is very similar to the i760
    but also includes a camera.

    So far, it has rebooted twice but only when I've used the tekniwap thing. I
    use that mainly to check my stocks on Ameritrade. Anyway, both times I
    immediately turned on the phone, went to the tekniwap alert and it froze up
    the screen. Then it stays lit and reboots by itself. I'm hoping it's
    nothing big as it seldom happens; your problem sounds more severe.

    Re: i760 Power Cycling

    Hi Michael I purchased 2 I850 Phones about 2 weeks ago from Nextel and they
    were both restarting by themselves one was restarting when flip opening it
    or in other functions, the other one was just doing it randomly. I filed
    2 Step Claims and received them new about 2 days ago. Well one of them
    already started rebooting itself (and I am going to file another step
    claim) and the other one I'm still testing it, that means I got 4 New
    I850's seating in my desk 3 are defective and I am still checking the
    other one. I have read that it is a common problem on the howard forums
    beware of the 400 minute rule. I don't know a solution to it or have not
    heard a real one yet, so my best bet is to file another step claim until I
    get what I paid for a New Working Phone, because two years is a long term
    commitment to pay for a useless phone. Hope this helps you.

    may be a dumb response but I tried flip opening it several times
    continuosly during the day and that worked for me so now I have a 3rd
    Defective New I850 phone.

    You only had 14 Days for Termination if not You would be charged $200 Early
    Termination Fee so good Luck Im in my 20th day still having step Claims
    filed and Hoping not to go over the 400 Minute rule they have set up. 400
    Minute life of Phone for a step claim to take effect if not your on your
    own. I was only about 10-15 minutes away on each phone beware it adds up
    10 minutes weekly you can check by pressing #*Menu Right Arrow quickly and
    go to 2nd Option and it will tell you.
