Question about Samsung Galaxy S 4G Cell Phone
The phone willl come on but after a few minutes it freezes & I can't do anything
I fixed mine!!! Okay. This is what you do. Make sure your phone is off and to turn it back on press Volume up and the Power on button at the same time until it says something like rebooting system at the very left top in blue. A menu will come up. Using the volume up and down, select the reboot option. It will wipe everything out, but as long as you are set up with google, you wont lose your contacts. There will be a confirmation question with a bunch of no's and a yes. Select yes using the power button. In yellow writing at the very bottom it should say that your phone has been rebooted. It will then turn on by it's self and you will have to re- set up your phone just like you had to the day you first got it. Sorry I don't remember everything word for word, but I just got off the phone with a representative and that's what he told me to do. It worked!! If it happens again though, contact your provider and tell them. They will replace your phone if it's still under warranty :)

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but phone freeze is pretty much the end of the line. That is a security feature in the base firmware. If a security code is entered incorrectly too many times, the phone completely locks up. At that point, it is pretty much useless.
Samsung has implemented this so that you have to send it back to them.
Unless you know someone that can reflash the main firmware, its bricked.
Please be fair and at least rate as helpful, because there really is no "fix ya" solution available for phone freeze.

Hi the problem you are having is with the firmware installed on the phone, the chances are the data is corrupt and it will need reinstalling the only place you can have this done is at a phone shop and they will charge a small fee for doing this.
make sure you back everything up if you do get it repaired as the phone will be wiped and it will be like it was when new, if you cant back the data up yourself then make sure you tell the shop to change the data over for you after the firmware has been updated.
im sorry their is no easy fix or nothing you can do yourself to solve this problem but without having the equipment to flash the phone and re-install the firmware their just isnt much you can do.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

If you want to try a simple solution, Go to Settings, Wireless and Networks, then Turn on "Airplane Mode" wait until you see an airplane on the top status bar of your phone... then Turn OFF "Airplane mode"
If that doesn't work, and you want to reset your phone, take it to the place you bought it or any place that is on your carrier.

Hello Guys. I have the same problem and I found out the solution. The problem is a faulty contact from the touchscreen leading to the phone board. To be short: on the right side of the phone were the volume buttons are, under the touchscreen is the screen's contact. Try "detaching the screens face a little from the phone body exactly at the volume down button(using ur fingernail or something) and see if the touchscreen is responding in anyway. My phone has a bad contact there, and in normal mode all is frozen. Now if I try to pull towards me, the touchscreen frame from the rest of the chassis, only a mm SURPRISE!! My touchscreen is working. IF this is your case too...I suggest get a screw-driver and open the chassis, and trying to make the connection permanent, somehow. I haven't done this yet, but will do it today. If anyone is interested I could post the results:) PS: you can send it back to warranty of a repair phone shop, only to force you to buy a new touchscreen and pay for the repairs, on a 99% working phone, with a faulty contact. The choice is yours:)
