    Looked EVERYWHERE for a solution to this problem to no avail. My entire activity zone stops working, meaning I cant access my volume/ringer, WIFI, camera, flashlight, etc. The only way I can reliably use anything in the activity zone is to restart my phone. Bought package disabler to try and see if that works but without success, clearing the cache and app data doesnt work either. Problem randomly appeared after a forced software update a few times ago. Before that, never had any issues. Now my phone cant take pictures without a 2-3 minute wait and I cant use it as a flashlight. If I'm in class and need to silence my phone, it doesnt work and I just need to turn it off. Super annoying, I find it hard to believe the only solution is restarting my phone, sometimes I need to do it multiple times a day.
