    Hello,

    My phone was charging yesterday at work and when I got home I let it sit for awhile. I went back to use it and the phone was completely off and I wasnt able to turn it on until I removed the battery and put it back in. This has never happened before. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Thank you!!!

    Something like this happened to me once while I was actually talking on the phone. Like you, I had to pull the battery to get it to boot up again. Hasn't happened since but I'm keeping an eye on it.

    This happened to me a couple of days ago. Actually, this phone has gotten very buggy after the "GPS fix" that didn't fix anything. I'm also now having freeze ups with the phone. Tonight it's gotten so bad that I've rebooted 6 times.:mad:

    if you continue to have that problem id say you have 2 optois start reading up on how to flash stock or custum ros orr you can call tmo or bell or who ever you got your phone from to get a new one shipped to you and send the old one back make sure to keep your micro sd and send them back the stock one

    im having the same issue with my vibrant. the problem started post ota update and seems to happen most often when charging phone. i have tried a master reset and the issue continues to happen. i have talked to 2 other people who are having the same problem. i am starting to think this is directly related to the ota update but i cannot find anything from tmo or samsung stating this is a known issue.

    It happens to mine as well. Pulled the batt 3x today. It's not that bad every day, probably not even most days, but it's pretty annoying.
