Unhappy Stiletto RIP

After 30 days of use, my Stiletto powered off and will not wake back up. I have an extended plan, so I suppose I will go and exchange it for another one [feeling like the start of my S50 experiences]. Anyone else have a Stiletto drop dead??

That's too bad but it IS the best way to go. Painless.

You're the first I've heard of in here.

Default Replaced

The Stiletto had been shutting down and switching WiFi off constantly. Then, today, the unit would not boot up. I replaced the longer life battery with the thin battery and still I could not revive it.

I purchased this Stilleto by finally throwing in the towel on my S50. My old S50 was replaced some 8 times over 11 months of ownership. I am happy that I purchased the replacement plan from Circuit City. I was able to turn in my S50 for the Stiletto. I was a bit dissapointed to wake this morning and find the new [30 days] old Stiletto dead. Again, I had used the refund from the old S50 to buy the Stiletto and pay for a two year replacement plan.

Just trade it in again. Seriously, you're the first Stiletto death I've seen since its release so it's definitely no S50.
