Windows 8 phone users tell of glitches

REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Microsoft has confirmed it is investigating reports of Windows Phone 8 devices suffering random reboots and problems syncing email messages.

Windows 8 smartphones from both Nokia and HTC are having issues with random reboots, Slash Gear reported Monday.

While Microsoft told CNET, "We are currently investigating reports of these incidents," it has been unable to offer users any advice or fix yet.

With Windows Phone 8 devices just starting to hit the market, the glitch is not good news for Microsoft, which launched Windows Phone 8 as a mobile operating system intended to take on dominant Android and Apple iOS phones.

No similar problems have been reported on phones running the earlier Windows 7 OS, CNET said.
