    Figured I'd share this information since I only found it in one obscure thread on another forum and a lot of people seem to be having this problem.

    A while back the dialer on my DX randomly stopped working. When trying the access the dialer, the dialer would flash and return to the home screen. After googling, I found all instances had a common element, a battery pull after the phone entered "cool down mode".

    Cool down mode only allows emergency calls, and I guess it changes some sort of "switch" on the phone. By pulling the batt and not allowing the cool down mode to complete, this "switch" stays active.

    All other threads suggest a factory reset which does solve the problem, but you lose all your data.

    The real solution is to induce an overheat (sustained internal temp >136
