Hello. I was wondering if you kind people would help me out with an issue with my Samsung Galaxy S. Have sent an e-mail to Samsung product support but I kind of want to fix this now and don't know when/if they'll get back to me.
Anyway, last night I set my alarm as I normally do before bed and this morning I over slept by a disgusting amount because somehow all of my apps had spontaneously crashed while I was asleep! The force close notification kept coming up for a number of different applications before I was forced to simply turn it off. When I turned it on again a few seconds later, most of my settings had been wiped along with much of the data kept on the actual phone memory. Some stuff was still there, like all my apps, my connections and passwords, but my home screen was defaulted, as were my message tone, ring tone and input settings. Also gone were any phone numbers I had stored on the phone itself as well as all of my inbox messages.
So, I went into the settings to put my screen lock back on because I noticed that had been reset, too. I did the normal routine, picked the pattern, confirmed it and so on. But after I put my phone down and locked the screen, when I picked it back up again and pressed the home key to activate the screen, it was just unlocked. I didn't have to input the unlock pattern. However, when I went back into the settings to make sure they were all okay, it made me enter the unlock pattern to get into it! How odd.
Later some people attempted to call me, but all that came through was a message saying I had a missed call. When I called them back (am able to make outgoing calls and send and receive texts) they said that they had had either one ring or no ring at all and then it had gone straight to my message bank. I confirmed this by ringing my phone with my landline and had the same thing. To make sure it wasn't my SIM card, I took that out and put it in my old phone which still works and called that. Totally worked, no issues. Put it back in the Galaxy and nothing, no notification apart from the missed call message.
So that's weird, huh? Does anyone know what could be causing this and whether it's fixable by me or some specialist or whether I need to get the warranty out? So far I have tried numerous reboots, read the questions of some people with similar issues (one suggested that the 3G was interfering, so I made sure that was switched off and tried again... still nothing). I'm just saying this so people don't chime in with stupid suggestions like, 'it's your carrier' or 'turn it off then on again' or 'make sure you don't have auto-reject on' (I don't). Because obviously I wouldn't be posting this unless I had already ruled out those options.
If anyone could help me out I would so so appreciate it!! Other than this one issue I love the Galaxy S to bits.
