    I JUST got this phone about... 3 weeks ago? The phone isnt rooted or anything but the screen lights up over and over again, I tryed killing tasks and I don't have a live wall paper or anything, it also reboots and freezes a lot! It reboots in the middle of phone calls and texts! It'll freeze up at random times. Most of the apps I have installed force close and won't let me use them, so there's no apps installed. I have factory reset it twice and still see the same problems, I called my phone company and they told me the warranty was only 14 days instead of 30!! Is there any way I can fix my phone? I cannot afford a new one right now and I have to have a phone!

    After the reset, does the problem return immediately or not until you reload your apps? If it doesn

    Ugh, that is bad. All I can think of is to get on the protection plan, wait a month or so, then report the problem through that. Probably have to try and do all that over the net, since your store already knows about you. Or just write a plea to someone at Sprint. I wish I could help you out of this...

    Man, that sucks. I'll try that, though.

    But it still doesn’t sound right that you bought a new phone from Sprint and they only warranty it for fifteen days...

    If you bought the phone new from Sprint, check with LG to see about a manufacturer's warranty.
