    Battery pulls becoming a necessary habit

    My phone has been needing rebooting more often lately. It will start opening menus that i did not select or getting stuck. Any ideas why or what i can do to stop this. Its happeneing more and more often.

    Yup... turn the phone off...
    Hold volume down + power...
    When you see it say fast boot let go
    Press volume down till you see Android recovery then press volume up...
    When the Android dude pops up press both volume buttons
    Then use volume down to navigate to wipe cache partition...
    Then select it with the power button...
    Once that gets done reboot

    What exactly does this do? Do you lose any app settings, or is it just an os cache and kind of like running disk cleanup on a pc? Do you lose any of the other phone settings after performing this procedure? Just curious and love learning about stuff like this, but I've already done 1 factory reset and it took 6-8 hours for me to get my phone back like it was. Hopefully clearing this cache doesn't create this much work afterwords.

    Sorry for the delayed response...
    But this clears the cache only...you don't lose anything data or settings... Ya you could say this is kinda like disc clean up on windows......... The Androidos is built for high cache... So it can operate faster and smoother... And sometimes conflicts can arise showing slowing things down... And thus just helps clown things up so it can operate smoother...

    So is it good to perform this cache clearing of the os every once in a while or just when having problems?

    It's good to do whenever... It won't hurry anything... The only thing is it takes a little bit longer to boot up... Because it's got to build up the cache again... But from a squeaky clean slate
