I recently bought a samsung note 2 in october 2014. It worked perfectly fine up until december. My phone won't lock. When i press the lock button the screen will go black but won't actually lock. When i press the button again it will go to the home screen right away even if i have a password set. But when I restart my phone it will lock then after so many times i unlock my phone it won't lock then i would have to restart it again. I'v been doing this ever since late november early december and now its january 2015. I looked at all my setting and everything was normal...

Another thing with my phone....sometimes i don't receive text messages when they are sent. I would sometimes get them half hour to an hour later. For example, If someone send me a text at 5:22 but i actually receive the text at 6:30 but says I text was sent to me a 5:22.

Hey Jordan,

You would need to do a factory reset but first you'll need to make sure that your phone is backed up. Hope this helps.

If you see a good answer, give it a star.
