Nexus S. Problems?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, this thread is directed mainly at people who have the phone, had it in the past or have had some experience with it.

So: I want to get this phone for myself (an upgrade from Nokia 5800 XM, blurry screen issue for the last 9 months), but from what I found in google the Nexus S seems to have a few issues of its own, the main one being random reboots especially during calls over 3 minutes in length.

My question is: has this been fixed?, since I can't find a thread about this specific issue. Does it happen very often?

For the record I use texts a lot more than calling. I send almost 1000 text messages each month and I don't make a single call. All of my call are incoming and very rarely last more than 2-3minutes.

Thanks for any info!

I tried the Nexus S at AT&T for a good 30 minutes, it did not reboot on me. However I did find it odd that when I first got to it's little booth that the phone was actually off and I had to turn it on*.

I did not make any calls. Overall though it was a fairly snappy phone, and I almost got it until my sister found the Motorola Atrix for $99.99@ AT&T (Nexus S was also $99.99). So I nabbed that sucker instead. You could check the Atrix out.

FYI, you can always root it and flash a ROM that doesn't have any bugs. Just FYI, from reading reviews, the Nexus S is not a great phone. IDK what other android phones your carrier provides, but I am 99% sure there are better options.

The problem is - I'm a very weird person, I HATE changes, especially changing things that I owned a long time, like this Nokia 5800 so I'm looking for something as close as possible with looks (ofc the looks isn't the main thing that I'm looking for but it can be a deciding factor for me).
The Atrix is fairly similar to the Nexus S, but I feel that it has a little less rounded edges and that puts me off... Another this that I really don't want to get is a Motorola for some reason, its just somewhere in my head that tells me "ugh" whenever I try to consider one.
Also when I choose something in my mind its almost impossible to change my mind, since I get so stuck on that one thing...
...and I don't know what to do now...
