Is there a issue with having to remove the battery to power up my phone. This has happened 4 times since i bought this thing a week ago. I'll set it down, come back, try to turn it on, but it wont power up witout having to remove the battery. Since i bought the otter box to protect the phone, it takes awhile to get to the battery. I went to a sprint store and was told this was a glich that sprint was going to send a fix to my phone,, the truth or just another sprint " get off my back " answer. Anyone know??
So sorry that you're having issue with the device! When you press the power key device should power back on.If not,may be some kind of software corruption issue.I would suggest you to back up your info to sd card and complete reset on the phone.
Here is the reset info using device hard keys
After data wide is complete, Press “HOME” key to select “reboot system now
Hope this helps
thanks for your reply, i took the phone to a sprint store where they did the re-boot. 1 day later it happened 2more times. I was within my 14 days of purchase (online) and sprint is sending a new replacement. It was a process though, I talked to 4 different people, at least (35 real minutes), and will have to jump through a couple of hoops. Between the Sprint stores and online communications i was amazed at the lack of real knowledge of thier own products.
