    Earlier today my phone turned itself off and on again and then shortly after I got a message saying I needed an update, so I installed the system update. Right after I installed it, my home button stopped taking me to the home screen, my lock button turned the screen black but when I hit it again, it didn't show my lock screen it just went straight to the home screen.
    The sounds are also different then what I had set up and the brightness changed, which isn't a big deal, but what the heck happened?:mad:

    Sounds like something went wrong during the update. I don't think there's much you can do other than replace it.

    (If it's under warranty or anything.)

    The lock screen may be a setting off in lock screen that says lock instantly with power button or the lock screen is set.to none as far as your button not sure about that

    There are a lot of people, after the update, having issues with the power button and home button bringing it out of it's "sleep"...
    I had the issue too where I would pick my phone up, press the home button to bring up the lock screen and it would just show a grey or black screen with a couple lines running through it and I would have to press the side power key to lock again and then re-press and it would come up normally.
    This was on 2 different devices both F3's after the update.
    I have 3 of these and my 3rd one it updated and so far I have not ran into this with it but who knows about down the road...

    Looks like it is a bigger issue with more devices and a glitch in the update they pushed out.
