Customer Question

I somehow clicked Voice on my Samsung Galaxy s6 active and it talks to me. Then I get locked out and it says to me put my numerical code in. I do but it won't accept it.

Customer: almost 2 years
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: well it won't turn off, just get to restart... and it just tells me to slide two fingers to get to screen. Weird.
