why does my cell phone shut itself off

I was having this problem last week. It would shut itself down every couple of days and enter a coma. The only way to get it back on was to remove the battery and replace it. Sometimes it would happen a few times in a day, and sometimes it would happen only once a week. I called Verizon and they asked me to run the phone in safe mode to see if the problem persisted. Basically to see if it was an app issue or a hardware issue. The phone ran fine in safe mode for a couple of days and then it started doing it again. I contacted Verizon again to provide them an update. They concluded that it must be a hardware problem and sent me a new phone.


When I say "new" I mean the phone they sent had a wrapper and sticker on it that said "certified like new replacement. " So for all I know I got a refurb from someone else with a similar issue. On the positive side, Verizon has been working with me to correct the problem without me having to go to a Verizon store. They've paid all shipping charges as well. I activated my new phone and have had it for only one day. So far so good, but we'll have to see as time passes. My advice would be to create a tech history report ASAP. That way, if you do need to get a replacement they will have a record of your problem.


Hope we get this fixed. I'm told this was a common issue on the GS2.
