Hi and welcome to JustAnswer.com.

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you with your Android issues.

Please do the following steps to reset your phone settings;

Please go to Settings

Select Applications

Select Manage Applications

Select All

Select Google Services Framework

Select Clear Data.

Turn your device off and back on. Test your issue again.

If that does not work, you will have to reset your phone to factory reset.

-Go to Settings

-Select Privacy

-Select Factory data reset

-Select Reset phone

-Select Erase everything

-Your phone will reset which will take about 3-5 minutes. Set it up again and test your phone issues. Thank you.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

as we have already performed a factory reset surely this would have cleared the issues

, but it didnt and different ones came back after the reset like the phone switching itself off , and freezing ,

Expert:  Nick H. replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for your info.

You might want to go to a phone store and test it with another battery. If that does not work, you will need to reflash your phone to the previous OS/firmware.
