Hello. A1000 are pretty buggy as phones. This may have a lot of causes, most of them because of the software installed, lack of internal memory and so on. When I had my first A1000 I was facing similar problems or the phone simply restarted when I was browsing the menu or things like that. A solution for these problems is a ROM update.However you will need a USB cable, a interface program between the phone and the computer and a ROM file (containing flex and flash). All of this were found on www.machman.gotdns.com but it seems the site is offline now. I'll try to search some of this for you but they are pretty hard to find as these kind of things are done in a phone service facility. Sorry for I can't assist you faster then this.
