    So my phone is busted, the screen is completely screwed up and there's nothing I can do except get a new phone when my finances allow. However, there's an issue. My phone has to stay on so I get notifications when people text me, so I don't leave them hanging for 30 minutes. The issue here is my alarm. It goes off every 5 minutes and I cannot find a way to disable it. It's been doing this for an hour and a half now and shows no signs of stopping. I can't turn the phone off (holding the power button doesn't seem to work) and I don't know if there's a way to disable the alarm while not a pixel on my phone functions as normal and the touchscreen doesn't work either. Anyone know what I can do to fix this?

    I'm confused. If the screen is dark and non-responsive, how does a text notification work?

    I can hear it. I can't access the texts through my phone, I use my computer for that, my phone just notifies me of the texts.

    I held it for 30 seconds but the phone keeps going into sleep mode while I try that.

    yeah then i have no idea other then to let the battery drain, charge it, wait til it is fully charged and then try booting it up. or see if you can go into recovery mode and do a factory reset.

    other than that, there is not much you can do at this point.

    With the Stylo, I believe you have to hold both the power and the volume down button for up to 45 seconds to force a shut down. The power button alone doesn't do it.
