I bought the LG Revolution phone 2 1/2 weeks ago and since then twice when I have not been using it, it shuts off by itself and does not power back up until I realize it is off and then I hold down the power key to restart it. It also turns off in the middle of using an app but then restarts itself. Is this a known glitch or is something wrong with this particular phone? Since I am after the 2 week mark, can I exchange it? Or am I out $200 for an issue that isn't my fault?
tiggerpolo81, I know your phone shutting off and on is very frustrating. I will attempt to assist you with some suggestions to resolve this issue. I researched this issue and found that some customers have reported this as an issue and we have also reported it to our device team. We will attempt to address the issue with any future updates for this phone. In the mean time, I recommend checking to see if a third party app is causing the issue.
Safe Mode temporarily disables all applications that have been installed via the Android Market. Performing this step is necessary to determine whether a 3rd party application is the cause of an Operating System / Application issue.
Enable Safe Mode
Disable Safe Mode
Additionally , if the issue continues we can review your account and device for warranty replacement options. If the phone is within its one-year manufacturers warranty and have no physical or water damage, it can be replaced with the same model.
