I was on the web when my phone just shut off and now it just shuts off and then reboots. I can't do anything else with it. I've tried taking the battery out and then after a few minutes put it back and it still does it. Is my phone done? I ran the repair and application loader and the lady at sprint said it didn't work and that I could send it back for another phone for $150

If you talked to somebody with sprint and they had you go thru trouble shooting steps that didn't fix the issue, and they told you it needed to be replaced, the phone's not fixable. you could try calling them and going thru the troubleshooting process once more, but reloading the software is the last troubleshooting step, other than doing a security wipe and THEN reloading the software. but it sounds like the phone is not repairable, which means the rep would be correct in suggesting it needs to be replaced.

Hold down the power button until it shuts down. Reboot. Start the update again. If that doesn't work, shut it down and reboot while holding the power AND volume down buttons, that will bring up a menu of options.

Display won't shut off

Its sounds as if you phone has crashed and the screen won't respond. The best way to correct this is to press and hold the home and lock button at the the same time. This will force your iphone to shut down. Once shut down, reboot your phone.
