    I would start heading to the verizon store. It is possible that a factory reset will fix it but I have my doubts.

    I had this problem before too. I think that my phone had gotten too much heat and direct sunlight.

    Well, I didn't use it for a while. After I took the phone to cooler conditions, the problems went away.

    No, I'm sure you have to actually go into the store and tell them the problem and everything.
