***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team

My phone is stuck on the opening "Samsung Galaxy Note II" screen. I tried taking the battery out and even took the sims card out and put it in my husbands phone and it still does the same thing. For the past few weeks I've had issues with the phone not charging, cutting on and off and missing apps. My contract is up in March and I found out the man that signed us up for the phone didn't add insurance on the plan. So now what?

Oh no gini68!

This doesn't sound great. Sorry to hear that your phone is stuck on the screen. Is there any damage to the phone? Either physical or liquid? Please share. Thank you.

I ran into the same problem last night. The phone froze, and I attempted to restart the phone by soft reset. And the "Samsung Galaxy Note II" screen stays on. And the built-in hard reset option couldn't revive the phone. I went to a local Verizon store and told that I may be able to flash reset it with an app using a computer. I'm okay to do that myself but I just need help to point me to the right files and apps.

Dennispang we'll point you in the right direction and get this resolved! To clarify, did the store give you the name of the program by any chance? Is there any change when removing the battery?

I am experiencing the same issue. Please provide some advice! I did a hard reset a couple of weeks ago and my phone started working. Then a few days after, it went completely out. It is stuck on the "Samsung Galaxy Note II" screen. Is there some issue with this phone?

Hi stace1023!

I apologize for the inconvenience and your efforts are greatly appreciated! After completing the hard reset, did you re-download all of your existing applications?

Thanks,

I downloaded some, but not all, apps.

Thanks for clarifying! Are you able to factory reset the phone and not place any apps back on it to see if the experience is any different for you? http://vz.to/1CZO1o1

no I didn't get the name of the programs from the store. I googled around and learned a little about hard resetting the phone, but I haven't got a chance to try it out. I'd rather follow your instructions to get it done right.

I did remove the battery and start the phone solely by external power, but the result was the same.
