I've had my note 2 since it was first released in November and I've loved ever minute of it. Coming from a razr maxx, I felt like I was in heaven but recently I've been getting a little annoyed. This will be a long post but I want to give as much detail as possible in hopes to not have to factory reset.
My sound isn't working half the time, system sounds mostly but not exclusively. Right now, none of my system sounds are working like when I hit the soft keys or even while I'm typing right now, nothing. Earlier today I noticed I had missed phone calls and texts while the phone was sitting right next to me so I looked at my volumes. The notification volume was turned all the way down, which I never do, and I couldn't get the volume to move when I tried turning it up. The others moved but not that one. I had to restart the phone. After that I played angry birds and in the middle of the game the screen wouldn't move so I tried backing out and nothing happened. Sound from the game was coming out and the birds were jumping but everything else seemed frozen. After about 60 seconds, it started catching up to my hitting the back key multiple times and eventually backed out. My soft keys aren't lighting up hardly at all anymore, I could go on. These aren't major things necessarily but obviously something is wrong with the phone. I am on the road everyday for work, driving to and from multiple places so my phone is a necessity to stay in business. I'm tempted to do a factory reset but would prefer not to. Anyone have this happen to them? Or have any ideas?
