I hit the top button to lock my phone, set it in my desk drawer at work, went to hit the top button to unlock and there was nothing. I tried to hold it for a little to power it back up, still nothing, I was freaking...so I pulled the battery, put it back in, then powered it back up...Seems to be working okay at this time. but WTF happened and how do I prevent it from happening again?
After my phone did restart it said my SD Memory card widget had to force close...I wonder if that App caused the problem.
Thanks in advance
There are lots and lots of possibilities as to "WTF happened" and no answer to "how do (you) prevent it in the future." It happens. Just as your computer has to be rebooted from time to time for reasons that are difficult to isolate, the same is true of that computer you're carrying around in your pocket.
Want a phone where it won't happen? Go to Verizon and ask them for a "dumbphone."
