    I am not so good in phone stuff..and this might sound so weird as I google-ed so much but nothing resemble my problem,

    here is the problem my phone actually tries to turn off the phone by pressing the power button..as the result it will pop up a window asked me to turn off the phone; aeroplane mode; silent ; vibrate.. so I had to press back to close that window..it does not happens every minutes but once in awhile it will happen..it is kind of annoying..

    I hope I have explained it well enough :/

    Sounds to me like the power button is failing and your problem is hardware related.

    If it is within manufacturer warranty, you can get it replaced. Otherwise, you may be out of luck.

    good luck

    Most factory warranties last a year, so there still may be time. Try contacting your cellular provider of the manufacturer. It is not uncommon for some phones to break earlier than others; some even come out of the box broken :(

    good luck

    p.s. I see you registered, welcome :hello:

    That's too bad that your provider won't help you. Maybe try a different person or get a hold of the maker of the phone.

    good luck
