You guys are lucky. Mine does not receive calls at all on startup. I do
not have any PIN, so it does not ask me for one. Moreover it does not
wake up after suspend - the screen is blank. I am not even sure it
suspends properly, cause I still able to ssh into it and if I issue apm
-s at that time it gives me apm: Device or resource busy. Only reboot is
the solution. I saw it register only tree/four times. All when I was
playing with default GPS program, but it may be only coincidence. Qtopia
also suffers from it, but not at that extent - it usually recovers
signal after awhile.
