    I could consider doing a factory reset if you haven't already. This WILL DELETE EVERYTHING but at this point I don't think you have much of a choice.

    A factory reset puts the phone back in a factory setting. Which can help as we don't know what's wrong with your device. Is it hardware or is there something wrong on a software end. Factory resetting will give us a better idea.

    It will only backup if you tell it to.

    They are only backed up if you select for that to happen.
    I would call T-Mobile and speak with tech support. If the phone is less than a year old and they cannot figure out the problem, they need to offer you a replacement device.
