Exclamation Help! My Galaxy Precedent will not grid lock all of a sudden!!

My phone will not grid lock all of a sudden. It had frozen up the other night so i took the battery out and turned it back on and the lock wasnt there. Ive gone in to my settings and set up a new pattern but it will still not appear when i hit the power button. The same time this happened my sift 'home" key stopped working as did the "search" key. its annoying cause I have to hit the back buttton a million times to get home. i found someone else on this website with the same exact problem but no one gave her any solutions. I was thinking about doing a factory reset but I go through straight talk and Im nervous I will lose my minutes for the month and my phone number. Does anyone know what I should do to get the buttons working again??? HELPPP!!!!

You won't lose your minutes or number by doing a factory reset. If that was the case most of us of this forum would have killed our phones by now doing what we've done to them.

Your minutes, phone number and contacts (if you've synced them with Google) will all still be there after the reset - after you re-sync.

It'll remove all the apps and other data if you haven't backed up, but to get the phone back to normal a factory reset 'should' work. If it doesn't, then it's probably a hardware issue. Your phone is a computer and sometimes computers mess up. A reset *usually* fixes most things.

Default did a reset work

I have the same thing happened to me the other day. I was trying trying to fix it no avail. just wondering if you did a factory reset? And did it work? and now my phone won't ring when I get an incoming calls or text message no matter how many times I turn the volume up. it's really getting frustrating, I to have straight talk, and was worried about losing info. if it helps you please let me know. I'd really appreciate it.
