i was wondering if anybody else had this issue, or ever better a solution. Today my phone restarted in my pocket on its own. no big deal. (i felt it vibrate and i checked for those of you thinking how i knew if it was in my pocket). since then the lock screen that has a few icons and a clock on it flicker and it kinda bothers me. it happens whenever the clock animation needs to update. AKA every time the second changes.

There have been reports of the screen flickering on evo lte's as well as one x's but I can't remember what causes it. On my first evo it really didn't do it but on the replacement I just got on friday its pretty bad. For the most part though, it only flickers when I am typing out a text message. I text quite a bit and it does it every single time I type a text message, so its very annoying to me. I may have to get this one swapped out for another one when I get a chance.

i hope that i dont have to do that. i have already had to replace my evo becuase it fried out on me. I love the phone but hey

 

BTW its not the whole screen that is flickering, just the clock/app icons on my lock screen. It has to be software right?

Ok, I just came from xda and someone there was having the same exact issue as me. It turns out that the latest version of SwiftKey maybe causing it. I switched to another keyboard and the flickering stopped completely. Your issue is totally different but yeah it could be either software or hardware, kinda hard to tell.

    • I was down in southern TN last week when the update hit and then noticed that all of a sudden when my brother and I drove back down to Huntsville - knew I'd never seen the UC addendum before, now I know why.
    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:  Edit:  Two more confirmed locations of conversion sites:  T-Mobile eNB 875316 Location: 40.7314623618499, -73.82849493999701   T-Mobile eNB 875868 Location: 40.75304305996773, -73.85311593221213
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use.
