You have an awesome phone coldjerry. I'm sorry its not working properly but we are here to help get those issues resolved for you. Did you have any software updates recently? How long have you had this issue? Is there any issues with your charger or charging port?

did the update that was on the phone about a month ago i think and it started about 2 weeks ago and the charger and port do not have any issues it will charge fine but the battery life now is not any good when it shuts down and u try to turn it back on it keeps shutting down so when it is put back on the charger it will turn on and stay on

If this started right after the update, a factory reset is your best option.

These steps are the same for any Android.

A factory reset might have worked for some but it made no difference for me.  Battery drain is horribly bad just as it was before factory reset AND phone goes to 1x once a day at least requiring me to power down phone, remove SIMM, power on phone, shut down phone and insert SIMM and power back on.  I now HATE this phone it's almost useless!

tdunnusa,

We're very sorry to hear that! We want to make sure you love your phone. Let's make sure we get it back in tip top shape. After doing the reset, did you install your apps back on the phone? Have we tried the phone in safe mode http://vz.to/1C72zjh?
