I got so fed up with the Performance of my Jasjar-that I have sent it off to Mobile Fone Repar in Auckland.
Since the Rom upgrade it has been very very unstable and I dont know whether it was this or perhaps a few minor drops its had.
Frequent hard and soft resets
Screen would turn blue and or other funny colours-needing a reset.
More recently several soiftware applications wouldnt work properly

So Ive made a claim on my VF Insurance.
This was last Monday and I havnt heard a thing as yet. (now being Thursday)-stated turn around was 5-10 days.
The business that I dropped it off to were going to charge me $70 as well as the excess of $120 that VF charged me.
I didnt bother asking for a loan phone-boy its been quiet.

I learnt today that my Jasjar will be completely replaced.
It seems that that it was fried-ie the circut board
Addit: Courier arrived Saturday am whilst I was away out of town-very good service. Will be picking up new Jasjar Monday morning personally from the couriewr depot by the looks

It could be the drops... Memory or board damaged?
