I am having some technical issues with my samsung s2 last night it was at about 10% charge and i put it on my charger and went to bed. When I went to use it this morning it must have rebooted itself overnight and will not load past the koodo screen. Is this something that koodo can help me with or should I contact samsung directly?

Unfortunately you're going to need to get jn to recovery mode and Do a factory reset

To get into recovery remove and reinsert the battery

Press power and both volume keys and hold all three until you feel a vibration

Release only the power key

When you get to recovery mode use the volume up and down keys to move to the reset and the power button to select it.

Okay so it's still under warranty. Contact koodo tech support to see if there is anything else you can try and if not arrange for warranty repair.

Try pulling the battery, then starting the phone up again while holding down both the volume up and volume down buttons at the same time. If it works this will take you to recovery mode and you can do a factory reset from there. If it doesn't you'll have to send it in for repairs.
