We are not eligible for upgrades until next May and June. My husband and daughter have different iPhones (4 & 5c). Because the iPhone and windows phones can't share calendars between each other, I miss important things being added. It is really a pain to have to peel off the otterbox case and snap out the battery on a regular basis to reboot the phones. Does anyone know of a way we could get the iPhone 5c without having to pay for an upgrade? Since the problems are inherent to the phone itself causing it to be defective, we think verizon should let us pick a better phone for replacement.
If your upgrades are not until May 2015 and June 2015, then your 822 should be under the 1-year warranty for at least a few more weeks. If that's the case, then visit your VZ store or call VZ and ask them for a replacement 822 phone.
I had the same situation last year after two months of having the 822. Got another 822 and didn't have to deal with the reboots again. I'm suspecting it's a hardware problem. I compared the two phones' (bad and replacement) part numbers on the back when I took off the covers. My current phone's part numbers located on the sides are: G012445V3.0 and G012445V4.0. I don't have the bad phone's part numbers but I do recall it was a different and lower number.
This doesn't answer your question but hope this suggestion alleviates your 822 problem.
Definitely faulty devices. Windows Phone OS is pretty hearty and shouldn't need to be rebooted at all.
Ditto what @primortal says - have had an 822 in grey for the nigh-on two years, no problems and my battery lasts for about 2 days of normal use without dying.
Unless you don't like the phone's GUI or the way Windows Phone OS works, maybe exchange for another one?
BTW - if any of you keep a calendar in Outlook on a PC, you can use it as a hub to sync with iPhones and your WinPhone.
