    OK, for forwarding your calls and texts, just call vzw and have them set the number to do so. I do this all the time when I'm at gigs.

    As for the TB shutting down and not coming on.... have you tried saying please?? Lol... I'm kidding.

    I would suggest trying a battery pull when it does this. That's all I've got for now, gotta research this..

    Your most awesome for replying .. thank you.

    I did battery pull, I did dance with battery, said please, and even promised never to upgrade to a phone that WORKS .. still no go.

    The phone works, everything works just fine except I have a black screen. You see nothing. Sound works, everything works. Right now I am getting anything I want off of it and deleting everything. I will probably factory reset just to be safe.

    Possibilities I have come up with

    1)Not so nice CPR (phone repair place) did not do a great job on replacing screen second time (your not supposed to be able to move the screen right ? ..omg)
    2)I have got something on there running which is heating up phone ..the thermo detector that was recommended by someone here told me phone was hot . but that seems to have stopped ... so app maybe? that I deleted?
    3)my phone is possessed and has decided to try and make me go nuts .. and it is working. I have researched for hours! (See time of first post, then time of this post ...yes, have been staring at laptop screen looking for answers) .. I am decent when it comes to phones, people bring me their phones to fix ...

    but I am stumped with this


    Just to be clear, the phone turns on and turns off just fine .. (even though screen is black, I remember where "power off" is and remember to swipe lock first lol) only issue is the screen is black ...can't see nuffin

    Last time this problem repeated I let phone nearly die ... so this time I am keeping charged ... I am scared to turn it off though fearing screen won't work when I turn it on.

    I have app on phone now that forwards everything .. and can be remotely triggered. Still getting few things off that weren't on SD card (which I took out and now am scared to shut down phone to put back in lol)

    The screen is possessed I am telling you....it overheard me talking about getting the Bionic or Razr I am sure

    How long ago did you have the screen replaced?? Did they provide a warranty? They should've. And you should look into that. Your device is no different than your car/suv/truck. If you have someone work on it, they should stand behind it.

    Call them, tell them the screen is having issues. Idk what time frame we're dealing with here, but a screen is not an item that should just STOP working.

    Does the TB have a micro HDMI like moto droids do? If so I would consider getting an HDMI to micro HDMI cable off of amazon, 5-10$ just in case this happens again. Mirror mode is very useful to me anyways.

    I had it replace a month and one week before this all happened, replaced the second time a month ago. I had sent an email to the main office after I got it "fixed" the first time. The screen had lines in it, it was impossible to type on it, and there was a huge gape between screen and phone casing. So much that I could easily put a few business cards between case and screen and have room to spare. I sent email simply stating I don't ever complain but I thought this was horrible service all the way around. I live in SA Texas and there was only a few places that even could work on my phone. I drove well out of my way so that I could go to this CPR store as they had the best reviews out of the two. They fixed it, I had horrible issues and then the screen SHATTERED (I mean shattered) only a week later..was told by the guy at the repair shop they wouldn't fix it again unless I paid again ...I said it was under warranty and was told it was my fault ..(women keep so much in their purses and bang their purses on their hips so things break easy...SERIOUSLY??) Anyhoo ..I sent email and just said that I wasn't the type to blast anyone on yahoo local or google but these guys seriously needed to be spoken to. To my surprise the regional store director called me. After few emails back and forth and pics sent of phone he arranged for my phone to be fixed under warranty.

    I refuse to call the guys at the store directly as they are rude and I don't trust them. So, I emailed the store director guy about my latest problems and no response. After two attempts I am thinking he doesn't want to hear from me. I will have to take it down to the store but gonna have to take a guy friend (which is just wrong in my opinion) .. not sure I even trust them with it though. But I don't have the money to keep replacing screens and NOW

    Verizon hates me because I am one of those grandfathered into an unlimited data package. If I upgrade to a new 4g phone (even though I am already on 4g) I was told I would be put on a pay plan! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    So right now my only option is paying full price for a new phone or letting meanie heads take another swing at it ..assuming they agree to fix it again anyway.

    I have the hdmi cable .. how do I do mirror mode??

    San Antonio TX? I'm in TX too lol. As far as them telling you that you would go to a tiered plan if you upgrade.. not so. At least until the 28th of this month. So if your gonna upgrade, I'd try to do it before then
