    Carrier: EE
    Heavy usage? Yes
    Occasional overheating? Yes it sometimes gets a bit hot despite going through and manually closing off any running apps. I sometimes shut it off for a few minutes then it comes on ok.
    Skype user? It is installed but I have not used it as my screen goes Blank during calls so the camera doesn't work properly.
    Gmail user? No but have both POP and OWA accounts running.
    Nokia Maps / Drive user? No
    Inconsistencies in battery life? When the phone runs hot it drains very quickly, under normal use I can squeeze one day out of it.

    I have had the phone since November and have constantly had trouble with the phone becoming unusable until a soft reset is carried out. I tried a hard reset and bricked the device so I have also Flashed the phone with the correct version: 059R1W5: RM-821_EE_UK_VAR240565_Black_V11_White but the phone still locks up. One really nice feature is when you do re-flash the device and login for the first time, how it pulls everything back down and sets the phone up with the applications and settings....very neat but still annoying having the phone require a soft re-set at least twice per week, sometimes twice per day....been late for work more times since using this phone than any other I have ever used but the device is great.

    When the device requires a soft reset it always comes back with the time & date of: 01/09/12 at around 5.47am with everything else set ok.

    The issue is that phone very often knows to shutdown, during day and night, only solution for powering up phone is to remove battery on couple of second.
    As I can see a lot of people has same problem and to be honest I am well experience user, with technical background and I am not able to found a reason why the phone randomly shutdown. I was perform dozen of testing during couple of days, installing, uninstalling apps, resetting phone to factory state and I could not see any relationship between random shutdown and installed apps and apps running in background.
    On my opinion, the right solution for this problem it would be event log on the phone. In terms of that, does anyone have some idea can this be developed and does anyone knows what data are included in feedback to Nokia and Microsoft that phone do it by self if we enable it via setting?

    Cheers,

    phone intermittently shuts off, needs soft reset. wifi on or wifi off doesn't make a difference. have missed my alarm twice, luckily I sleep with my old phone as a back up alarm. but for a 600 euro phone this is unacceptable, it should at the very least be a reliable alarm clock!!! fix this please, it is outrageous.

    Just wanna point out that it's not a small number of people complaining about it. Everywhere people points out that the phone is freezing, even in random Brazil forums people are arguing about that. Not sure, but I guess it should be the OS (or that is what I want to believe). Hope it gets patched up.

    I presume that the rebooting problem occures more often while in connection with a bluetooth device (car radio).
    The freeze Problem was solved after installing the 1308 update.

    Most apps (incl Settings, Messages etc) freeze and won't load. Soft reset used to fix it, but after a few weeks a soft reset would brick the phone. Stuck on Nokia logo until the battery drains, after that it manages to boot up and work properly for a few minutes. Seems to be SIM-card related, haven't had enough time to test it though.
