HTC Tilt Nightmare with freezing up !

My daughters phone is a freezing nightmare !! Only had is a couple months, it started freezing soon after we got it thought is was no biggie cause my iphone does too, but it has only gotten worse !!!!Smiley Mad  When we call at&t they dont give us a real solution except send phone back for another of the same phone...I do not want another one as I am reading these phones are known for this problem.  Isnt there a download or something to fix the freezinig up ?? Also when I get a phone call the caller id says who it is but if I miss the call and when I finally see it it says unknown caller and I have them stored in my phone so it should still say who called ???? Someone please help I am fed up with this HTC Tilt !!!!

Re: HTC Tilt Nightmare with freezing up !

If you've only had it a few months, presumably it's the Tilt 2 and not the Tilt?  If so, have you installed the updated ROM?  You can read in other threads about any issues users have had with or after the update, but it does appear to address what you're describing.

 

This is from the page for the update on HTC's site:

What’s included:

  • HTC Sense replaces TouchFlo 3D
  • Ability to Format the SD Card directly in the device
  • Inconsistent Caller ID function Hotfix
  • TILT 2 Freezes in SMS application Hotfix
  • Phantom SMS/MMS Count Hotfix
  • Overall improvement in the devices stability/operation
  • Built-in AT&T WiFi Client
  • Built-in Vlingo voice app
  • Improved email & messaging experience
  • Improved music & calendar experience
  • Built-in Twitter application
  • Built in IM client
  • AOL, MSN, Yahoo

Re: HTC Tilt Nightmare with freezing up !

The post above has hit the nail on the head.  There is a fix for this problem and it is in the ROM update provided by HTC.  Do not be afraid of the process.  It is very easy and you are not risking your phone.  Apply the ROM update and enjoy the phone.  It is a nice handset.  I gave a star to the poster above, but I don't know how to recommend as a "solution".

Re: HTC Tilt Nightmare with freezing up !

how do i check if i have the latest ROM already.  My phone is brand new. (2 wks old).  I get the black screen and power button or nothing else wakes it up and holding power button also does nothing.  Charging it (even though it already has a full charge - does wake it back up).  Always happens when i am running a resource hog chess program called pocket fritz (but samsung epix WM 6.1 handled the program flawlessly).  Anyway, just wanna find out which ROM I have.

Right above the "Download" link for the update, there's a "more" link.  Click that, and it will give all you need to know.
