Before we conclude that the hardware fix is required, we'd really like 
to gather a lot of statistics from you about the behavior of the 
software fix. We have been able to test in only a limited number of 
locations, and a limited number of phones.

We'd like to ask you to run some tests and report back the TTFF in each 

1. Prior to Andy's software fix
1a. Without SD card
1b. With SD card

2. Using Andy's software fix
2a. Without SD card
2b. With SD card

Preferably run this test in multiple locations.

Results should be reported on a wiki page, which should include your 
location (so we can assess other influences e.g. satellite elevation and 
weather conditions)
