Samsung and Sprint have an active investigation but that's all we know right now. Periodically someone may stop by and leave an update. When the source of the issue is found, we may or may not get an update or root cause.
Solved! Go to Solution.
How has this issue be resolved?
My S8 is 3 month's old and it is doing the same thing,that everyone is having an issue with.
It started tonight at around 7pm est. Never had this happen to me before.
Hi CHUMS17! We have received your private message, I will reply to you shortly.
I am having the same trouble. I recently purchased a pre-owned S8+ (which, btw I love). I did forcestop it because it was annoying. Please advise..........
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
what update is your phone currently on?
youre a tad bit behind the curve when it comes to the OS updates.. you should be on Oreo
I'm curious...is this investigation an investigation into imposter cell towers possibly? Ones that are hacking the Sprint OMADM on unpatched devices through fake software updates? Do the hackers then silently reprovision their phones and install UI blocks to prevent them from uninstalling key parts of their hacked systems? Cuz if my theory is right... my devices are likely hacked to be fake towers or I'm fairly close to one in proximity.
