VX9900 Random Restarts and Blue Screen of Death

I've had my VX9900 for over six months. About three weeks ago, it started to randomly restart itself. It's done it in the middle of phone calls, in the middle of texting, just whenever. At the same time, it started going into a mode where both the front and inside screens would go blue with the VX9900 header with a box with an arrow going into it below. When it does this it freezes up and I have to pull the battery out.

I've heard that a couple games have caused this problem, but I had not gotten anything put on the phone for weeks before this happened. Any ideas?

Re: VX9900 Random Restarts and Blue Screen of Death

I've been having the same problems as everyone else with my Orange EnV. I bought mine back in May, and thought it would be the coolest phone in the world to have, since I text ALOT to everyone I know. I think after about 4 weeks, I started notcing that not only was my phone freezing up during texting, but was also randomly restarting.. The whole restarting issue is up to about 5-8 times a day. I've gone through 4 EnV's now, so hopefully this time they will give me something that ACTUALLY WORKS.

Also.. I use my Instant Messenger on my phone, and wanted to know if anyone else uses it if they have problems getting IM's back from people.. Apparently I can send IMs out okay to people, but I don't get anything in return.

I had to get 3 different enVs from Verizon because they all randomly restarted. Then, they gave me the enV2 because I told them I wanted something comparable. Well, I've had the enV2 for about 4 days now. SURPRISE! Its restarting on its own!
I dont know what to do. I'm really getting tired of using different phones. I was told its a software glitch and then i was told its not.

I was told by Verizon that this is caused by outdated software. If you have the software upgraded it should fix the problem.

There are widespread complaints regarding this phone's random restarts. The possibility is that you acquired a refurbished phone. You have two options in order to get rid of the random restarts at this point: 1. To trade in your phone. It would be helpful if it is on warranty 2. Obtain a new phone

LG ENV2 shutting off

I just got mine a few weeks ago and it does the same exact thing (I didn't drop it, there is no water damage, I didn't understand the cause of it). I took it back to the Verizon store and I was told that the random shutting off like that is caused by having the phone outside being exposed to heat. He reset my phone back to factory settings and that did the trick for awhile (its hard for me to go to the pool and not have my phone exposed to the heat). There is no charge for them to reset the phone. Mine has started the random shutting off again back up

Dropped Env2, Screen wont show up

Well, its possible that you just need to turn the phone off, and turn it back on. Or maybe when you dropped it, something inside the screen itself broke.The only way to be sure is to take it in and have them look at it. Good luck.

You need to reseat your battery and put a piece of folded up paper between the battery and the battery cover. This should help with random restarts.
