Question about HTC Touch P3450 Smartphone

2 Answers

Sof Hey! My phone randomly turns itself off or freezes and the on/off button becomes useless. The only way to turn the phone on or off is to reset it via removal of the battery. It happens often. I have been told I maybe need to reinstall the "firmware". Any ideas where I get the firmware from (not on HTC site) or if this is indeed the problem.. Thanks!!! Natalia :)

    Same problem with me. The screen goes black and there's no way to turn the phone back on. I've tried taking out the battery; plugging into USB; plugging into AC source: reseting the phone by pushing the stylus into the hole on the side of the phone.

    Any other recommendations?

That happends because the sleep mode is on on the settings. You must press the power button for 3 or 4 seconds to wake the phone. Instead of having that option on got to settings, key lock and select lock buttons if device is locked. This way, when it goes to sleep, you can press one of the hard keys and wake the phone with no problems.
