hello. My name is***** can help you with your question.

The first thing I would suggest doing is removing the battery which will completely shut off the phone. Then reinsert the battery after a minute and let the phone startup. At that point you should be able to get to the boot up. If you cannot, it may be something a little more serious than a restart. If this fails to help, exactly what part of the startup do you get to?
