    I been reading and people said to clear the cache on apps...did that...still same

    Then they said to do a factory reset...so I deleted all my good stuff and did that...SAME DAMN ISSUE

    I press the power button to make it 'sleep' and nothing...if I press it again....it reboots completely. I can't get it to sleep...wtf just happened to my phone???

    I even tried the 'cold reboot' with the volume down and power button....nope same issue.

    Please help I want to smash this phone right now

    Hi,
    I think I'm having the same problem - my phone turns on, then about 30 seconds later, the screen goes dark and it's powering up again. Then 30 seconds later, the same thing. Over and over and over.... It doesn't stay on long enough for me to clear the cache or do anything.
    I let it power down completely (drained the battery), turned it off, and charged it, but it's still doing the same thing.
    So do I press the power + volume down button while it's off? I don't want to accidentally do a factory reset and lose everything on my phone... Oh, and I can't connect mobile network, just wifi.
    So frustrated!!

    While it was on I did the power button and down volume and just held it...then it reboots...then I did it again.....rebooted...AND I DID IT AGAIN!!!!!!! LOL That fixed it for some reason.

    But the factory reset may help yours as yours seems far worse. Mine only powered off if I touched the power button more than once......sometimes with emails.

    Just keep doing it....it worked for me

    But yours is just rebooting over and over...mine was when I did things or pushed buttons.

    I would honestly do a factory reset...you lose your apps....and their settings but it's that or smash the phone......or pay deductible for refurbished one? hmmm think about it. THat is why I went factory reset when all I needed to do was this! UGH
