Epic 4G Touch - Phone Crashes when it detects App updates
Alright so I have been having a reoccurring problem that I haven't heard/read about before. My phone works great except for when there are App updates waiting to be installed from the Play Store. When my phone detects the updates, it goes to a black screen and refuses to turn on until i remove/replace the battery. I had a battery almost explode last year and was given 2 replacements from the Sprint store - this happens with both new batteries. I have tried uninstalling apps which results in the same crashes. It is also fully updated and completely stock. Also, after the reboot I can install the updates like normal.
Any suggestions? I am near the end of my 2 year mark but would like to have my phone not die on me constantly - happened during a phone call too.
