Have no fear, help is here! I'm troubled to read that you are having some concerns with your brand new phone. Let's get to the bottom of this right away! You mentioned that this just started happening, have you made any recent changes on your device (new software update, new applications, etc)? Does your phone have a case on it? If so, if you remove the case, do you notice that your power button is functional? Any physical/liquid damage on the phone? We're eager to assist!
