i600 Just "Wakes Up"

7 posts in this topic

Running SmartPhone 2003 and notice that the Samsung I600 will just “light up”. I was watching the phone today, it was sitting on my desk, turned on, out of the cradle and was open. From time-to-time the screen/keyboard would simply light up, stay lit for a short period of time then it would go back into its screen-off power saving mode. There was no incoming call, no voice mail notification, no messages, etc. I've notice something similar when the phone is in the charge/dock cradle and flipped open. The phone seems to "wake up", which then wakes up ActiveSync. This happen to anyone else?

Change activesync to only sync on demand.

It may be waking up to close down programs that you have used recently but are still in memory.

Mine does the same at work. The signal here is so weak that I rarely get one. At times I will get a signal, and the phone wakes up. You may be experiencing the same if you have very poor signal, or even if you just loose a strong signal for a moment...

Thank you mark_k for the excellent suggestion, but unfortunately I made that change before posting.

Travelfeet your comment is quite interesting, only thing is that even when the phone closed and placed in the sync cradle, ActiveSync will also “wake up” on its own from time-to-time. Never-the-less, this is an interesting suggestion and bears further observation.

Just another strange “feature” of this phone…we love to call them “features” in the software industry to cover up for the real reasons like bugs or poor design.

I noticed the same thing ... I think it does that when the phone switches channels (like switching between towers).

Have you guys checked your automatic email check options? I have mine set to check every 15 minutes. When it does this it lights up.

Just a thought.

Cheers
