My Samsung Focus randomly restarts primarily when using data, is there a way to fix that?


Pretty much the title description, when it restarts I sometimes have to pull the battery out too, whats going on here?

hmmm.... Well based on a quick read from here (http://forums.wpcentral.com/samsung-focus/178366-samsung-focus-reboots-fixed-worked-me.html) it could be two things: 1) Running too hot and shutting down as a safety 2) Running out of memory and having to crash I reeeeeaaaallly doubt it is the power button thing. Possible solutions, try removing your case to let your phone breathe a little and see if it helps with overheating. Most probably though it's a memory-filling issue. Try emptying out unnecessary data/files/open programs...etc... and buy an SD car to store your stuff on. Also change your Reserve Space from 1% to 20% through Zune, as suggested in the link. Good luck

A quick search shows that this is a common problem for the Samsung Focus 😞 However, the one good article I found is that it might be possible to find a fix: http://forums.wpcentral.com/samsung-focus/178366-samsung-focus-reboots-fixed-worked-me.html Try it and report back if that works... if not, you might need to get it fixed (if it is within the warrantee period) Good luck Alexander 🙂

Thanks 🙂 I'll give the bumping the reserve memory up since I don't use a case a try
Well unfortunatley those methods didn't work so I think it must be that its overheating, but thanks for the help 🙂

Sorry to hear that Alexander, is it still within the warrantee period? You could have it fixed then... and otherwise perhaps treat yourself to a nice new phone 🙂

I think it has expired, so getting a new phone might be the best option. Thanks again 🙂

Sorry to hear that Alexander. Unfortunately the Focus isn't something we have direct experience with and I wish we could be of more help, but hey.... If you can upgrade, there are plenty of shiny toys to choose from 🙂 ... Unless of course someone knows exactly how to solve it. Either way, good luck!
i am getting the same problem with my focus,,,, just now hard reset it ,, and now the problem is resolved,, maybe there was an issue with the memory , as last time i remember it had only 4 gb remaining ,,, so maybe there would have been some issue with that , thanks for helping ,, i really like internet ,, because dy these type of forums always help me 🙂 hope my comment would help any1 other too
