    well, i seem to be having an issue. and this just started a few days ago. whenever i receive a text message (i use handcent) the screen will act like it wants to turn on, but it does not. the homescreen buttons ligt up, but nothing else. when i go to hit the unlock button, the screen will not come on. or at some times, it will but be completely unresponsive. it also has happened while typing. the screen will freeze, fade out like the normal screen timeout does, but it wont come back. in order to get everything back working i have to remove the battery. sometimes..that doesn't even work. i really don't wanna have to send the phone in. i just want to know if there is a fix to this.

    thanks in advance.

    On my ally when I used handsent it used to make half my screen not work. I figured out how to fix it by holding in my home button till my recent apps menu appeared then it would be ok.

    I kno it was handsent cuz it didn't start till I put it in and has never happened since I switched to a different one

    your running a custom rom, correct?


    i had this EXACT SAME issue a device ago... turned out to be an issue with the rom install.


    what i did was.

    - redownload ROM
    - Boot to Recovery
    - Wipe data
    - Wipe Cache
    - Wipe Dalvik
    - Clear Battery Stats
    - Mount system and Data
    - Install Rom




    then, i did the same steps AGAIN, and it worked. my issue was something in the cache kept locking it up.


    try using the Fission Rom. it is the most stable D2 ROM ive used and gives great support, battery life, and customization

    try uninstalling handcent for a few days and see if it happens.... it might be an app issue.

    Handsent is a messaging extenttion app. Uninstalling it will not affect any messages
