I am posting this in a new thread to make it more visible.
I did the battery disconnect as requested by ZX81
to see how it might affect SOD.
All it did was slide the plug back with a fingernail and place plug on top, did not mess with the battery. Left it this way 5 mins.
I CAN NO LONGER INVOKE SOD!! I have tried putting it to sleep for 2 mins then using it, no problem. 15 min nap and it functions fine.
Left asleep for 3 hours woke bright eyed and full functioning. I had wifi on all these times and did on occasion see it flash on for a sec then off Each time it reconnected to my wife network. I have tried it in airplane mode as well with no issues.
This makes sense from my stand point in that I only got SOD after having run the battery down and having the unit die on me.
Side not to this I have now heard that people with Blackberrys that get SOD have always disconnected the battery and the problem is fixed for many months.
Is it really that easy??
