Phone turns off and on

by MARBLEANN / January 31, 2011 11:42 PM PST

I have a 8900 Curve and I have had no problems since buying the device. Lately the phone turns itself on and off a few times a day all by itself. What is going on?

LOL Spying..ok
by MARBLEANN / February 1, 2011 4:29 AM PST

LOL means Lots of Luck if someone is spying on me. I can tell you if someone wants to read my messages and convo's they are happy to do it. They risk dying of boredom. I rarely use the phone other then for the MP3 player and to make emergency calls. And texting, well that is a joke. They might wait a week between calls. And only 3 people have my number. Heck I do not even know it offhand. Unlike most people my primary phone is my land line, not my cell. I am actually old enough to know how to survive out of the house without a phone. I do not have conversations with people on the phone when I am not home. Me and my friends do not have to be available at all times for phone calls. I like my privacy. Something a cell phone has taken away from most people. So we can basically eliminate the spying problem. So how do I reset the phone?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
