I have a launch (preorder) Lumia 900 that I fear may be destined for repairs. Like a number of others, I've observed the strange overheating/fast battery drain problem on several occasions. Once it happened on mountain roads, so that I can chalk up to poor signal, but it's also happened while simply sitting on the table, so I'm suspicious of it to say the least.
Yesterday things got worse, however. It seemed like the digitizer in the screen lost it whenever the phone was charging (scrolling randomly, clicking the wrong thing whenever I tapped, etc.). The bug went away whenever I unplugged the phone, so I left it be. This morning, however, the phone is entirely unresponsive. Hitting the power button pops up a blank lock screen (no clock, etc.), the battery icon displays a question mark, and the touchscreen does not react (can't slide to unlock, goes right back to sleep even if touched). The capacitive buttons don't respond or light up, though the side ones do (camera will shoot behind the lock screen, power button will wake/sleep the phone, but will not power it off).
Anybody seen this before? I am running the data firmware patch (had that problem too back then, lol).
Edit: Bit more info, it seems that many of the OS functions are still running behind the frozen screen. Just heard the email notification go off (and as I said before the camera will snap pics, even if I can't see the camera app).
