Last week was the first time that it has just frozen and needed a reset.
I regularly clean the history, maybe that's it.

Well there are certainly lots of horror stories about the 505 with bad batteries (just check out this forum), and it didn't have WLAN. And we're not talking 75% of normal, we're talking 2% of normal !
And what's the scariest, nobody mentions any normal solution to this ! You have group A, who live in the US and just send it back for a good one, and group B, who try to replace the battery and either destroy the device or succeed and have a battery that lasts for 2 weeks and then dies.
So what is someone who doesn't live in the US (there's a whole world out there believe it or not) supposed to do ?
I just hope mine will be the right one...
