    I have a lg flex. While on Facebook my phone will shut off and restart? It only appears to do this on Facebook app. It was a AT&T phone but im using T-Mobile service. I already removed the app once and replaced it. After a few updates it happened again. Any help please

    Clear the cache in the FB app. Force stop and reboot phone.

    If that doesn't work try using FB in the browser or use an app like Tinfoil. This will be easier on the phone, than the bloated mess of the FB app.

    (What phone do you have, BTW?)

    I have an Lg Flex. Ive already deleted and rebooted the app. It was fine till it updated and now randomly shuts my phone off.

    FWIW,
    when I deleted FB's app on my Note 4, I quit having some quirky little things show up...

    I now just use Ghostery and a bookmark for FB.... works much better.

    I agree. My phone flies since I removed the FB (and Twitter) app and use SlimSocial (Basically a wrapper for the mobile app)
