    Re: network gremlin

    Umm, tiny goblins have crawled into your circuit board and are messing with your phone.

    Seriously, I thought it was just a slang for connectivity problems like network congestion or random signal interference, I was surprised to hear you actually got that as an error message. Software designers with a sense of humor; telling people their phones have gremlins in them.

    -Who is your provider, what kind of phone do you have? Update your profile in the User CP.

    -Did the error have a code number we can try to look up?

    EVERYTHING that bears the "Virgin" logo comes with a sense of humor!! Bold and irreverant humor most of the time... The last sentence of my Virgin Digital user agreement was something to the effect of "We can't believe you read all of this"... their transatlantic flight ads are a giggle every time , and even the warning notices on trains in the British midlands brought a half smile to my face (though the red and near-purple handicap accessible restroom with the large, automatic, circular door just kinda freaked me out.. if that puppy opened of its own accord I'd practically be peeing in the dining car).

    I'm certain that it was just that... an undefined error accompanied by a sense of humor .... Rest assured that there aren't any gremlins in the network.... today

    I have a kyocera Arc and I also have network gremlins. When I called to get the problem resolved, I was told this problem washappening with my phone and some android phones. They were unable to rectify the situation so I am going to have to find and company.
