My phone did this a few times as well. It went on for a few days, I couldn't answer my phone unless it was closed and I slid it open, couldn't look at text messages, nothing. Finally it died and I recharged it and it started working again. Later on the phone also would act like I was randomly opening it, so it would light up, causing the battery to die faster. Once it died completely I charged it and it worked fine again. So far it's been a month and it hasn't happened again. Now though my phone stops working where I can't receive calls or text or make calls or send texts. This can last for 20 minutes to 3 hours at a time. I can't wait to get a new phone!!!
If the phone is having this problem you can stop it by removing the battery and sim the replacing them in the phone one minute later. If you already tried this and it didn't work apply for a samsung fix grant and let them solve the problem, or you may be able to get a better newer phone
Dial *228 and press send. Listen for the prompt and press 1 to program
your phone. Remain on the call while your phone is programmed (could
take up to 2 minutes). Do not hang up until you hear, 'Your phone has
been programmed successfully."
i work for metro and yes we treat our customers like shi* because you all are shi*. I dont even own a effin metro phone but I sell the shi* all day.
work arounds because I hate the company and customers...
if you live in the city change your address to outside the city to lower your monthly cost. this avoids city taxes which could be 5-$7.
and shop online for prices then go buy a phone because you might get caught up spending 10-$40 more on a phone.
fu*kers I hate you metro customers so take this tip and shove it up your a-hole
