A couple of weeks ago, my HTC One Max started randomly rebooting, about once every 3-4 days. It's not a full reboot, but instead starts at the Sprint Spark screen. Services also tend to crash during this type of automatic restart, but a manual reboot seems to fix it. Online research seems to indicate that this is some sort of WiFi problem, but it seems to be getting worse, though at a very slow progression. There have also been a couple of times when the phone "forgets" it has a Micro SD card inserted.
Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, is there a workaround? Or should I put in a TEP claim and get a new one?
Not possible. Closest Sprint Store (independent contractor) is in Erie, PA, 50 miles distant. As I have no car of my own and with the weather this area has been having, I'd be unlikely to make it there until at least April.
The phone is now completely bricked. Won't turn on, won't recognize chargers, nothing.
Unfortunately, I have no money at present to pay the deductible on my TEP, and the closest repair center is approximately 40 miles distant and essentially unreachable, as I have no way of getting there.
Chatting with Michael B at the moment. He wants me to have it looked at at the closest Sprint Store, but that's not an option, since there's no bus service and my family (I don't drive) won't go that far until after the snow melts.
