    I am using 7.0 and tried to upgrade to
    The operation was successfull, but when i want to place or receive a call and cover the proximity sensor, display gets blank, then the phone reboots ( red led).
    I've downloaded another version from another operator, same thing.
    I've tried with the, same issue, when proximity sensor activates, phone reboots.
    Any advices?

    Thanks in advance!

    Do a complete wipe. I personally don't like upgrading significant updates without wiping. I've had a whole system crash down on me during updates before. Wipe it then try it.

    sorry for the delay. It has nothing to do with the scotch tape, because it was hapening before also.
    i'll try to make an update to and complete wipe if this is not working either.
    back with the results in few days top.
    Thank you!
