Does anyone have any insight? I'm really sad about this. I'm afraid that Its because he was used, despite being in almost pristine condition when I received him.

Yes, this may be because of the temperature.
Were the batteries included? Maybe the seller put old batteries into the Tamagotchi. Try changing the Batteries and pressing "Download".

How can I help ease the temperature problem?
Edit// it's an ID L. I'm going to buy a P'S in a few days, since I got paid, and as celebrations for confirming my study abroad in Japan for next semester. Is this going to be a recurring problem?

That may be the problem. Perhaps you could ask him when he put the batteries in his calculator. Or, if you recently put batteries into something, take them out and put them into your iD L.

Hm, I have my iD L-E with me all the time in all sorts of weather conditions, and I live in Canada so it's cold here. I've never encountered that problem at all. Hopefully it's just a battery problem.

I didn't have any money to buy batteries, because it didn't come with any, so my boyfriend gave me some out of his graphing calculator. Could that be the issue?
Apparently, yes. Used batteries may cause it to fluctuate; try using a fresh pair of batteries.

I think that is is either the battery's or the temperature changes. It is probably the temperature changes but change the battery's as well just in-case it is them. Hope you figure it out and get it mended soon!

I put in new batteries last night. It didn't freeze at all during the night, or this morning until during my second class. ):
Is there anything I can do to test if it's the temperature causing issues? I'm beginning to think it's broken... Poor guy has been 3 years old for the past two days now.

Where is your seller located? There must of been a slight change in temperature. I also think that shipping damaged it, because of the heat in the package or the constant passing.

This really sucks. Now I'm afraid to buy a P's. Should I just wait until I go to Japan in September to buy one?
Posted 27 March 2013 - 12:23 PM
Maybe try contacting the seller to see if they have any tips for you?

Today, it has not frozen at all. I've stopped carrying it on a lanyard around my neck, and put it in the breast pocket of my shirt. I'll see if it is fine off of a belt loop tomorrow.

Your Tamagotchi might not be broken, but it is probably glitched. So it requires some special care. :3
Be careful not to drop it, and put it in a warm soft pouch when you go outside. Avoid too much heat or cold. Try not to bump the Tamagotchi around as well.
If you get a P's, it will most likely not have the same glitch. I am recommending that you buy a P's new and returnable. If it's glitched, you can return it that way, and you can be sure it's not just that someone dropped it.

So far, everything has been fine. I'll look into getting a thicker/warmer pouch for the IDL.
Thank you everyone, for all of your advice.

Remember - electronic devices in general may tend to misbehave a bit when exposed to extremes. This is not limited to Tamagotchi alone.

Hmm. Even in below zero extreme cold temperatures where I live, neither my iDL or P's have ever frozen.. and I've played with them while out snowshoeing in the cold! When the batteries get low, sometimes my iDL does freeze for a matter of seconds (no more than 30 seconds) but it always unfreezes by itself. I've never had to reset it.
