I've had this phone for about a year now and I've experienced minimal issues. Today I was on the phone, the call ended, and so I locked my phone and put it in my pocket. When I took it out nearly an hour later, the screen turned on for about half a second, then went extremely dim to the point where it was noticeable that the screen was on, but too dark to read.
I restarted the phone, no luck. Whenever I try to unlock the phone, the proper brightness flashes for half of a second and then just goes dim again. When I try to text people to the best of my ability, no text comes up in the box at all. The phone makes calls fine, however I need to get the screen working.
I'd appreciate some help if possible, and also if there's any way I could fix this without erasing all my data, that would be wonderful. Like I said, I've had this phone for about a year, so I have a ton of photos/videos/files etc.
