ok, we will then have to reinstall the firmware on the phone.This will remove all data and return the phone to new, so please first backup any data off the phone.Then go to Settings, Backup and Reset, Factory Reset.Let this complete, setup the phone again like when you first received it and tell me how it then functions please.
