Last night my phone started acting weird, turning off on its own, the screen colours started changing on their own, and then today the home button won't work.
I tried calling Koodo but there's an hour long wait!

Anyone else have this issue? How did you resolve it?

Have you tried a Factory Reset?

I'm pretty sure a factory reset would erase everything on my phone, so that would be a last ditch effort.
Any other ideas?

Not really...if it's not a software glitch it's a hardware issue. A factory reset would rule out a software glitch. If it's still happening after the reset then you'll need to either get service for the device or replace it depending on your warranty status.
