    Back, home, search, menu buttons not working

    All four buttons on the lower part of the phone are not working. I was using the browser when the became unresponsive. I tried turning it off and on, taking out the battery and letting it sit for 5 min, turning it off and letting it sit for 5 min, and charging it. What can I do to fix this problem. I see in some posts people have said things about typing in a set of numbers into the dialer, but I would prefer to do something that isn't going to possibly cause more problems.

    What you have read is probably a suggestion to reset phone. This is best done from recovery menu. (Vol up + Home + Power keys together), however if the home button failure is due to a hardware issue it may not work and you would need a repair.

    can anyone help me posting a new thread. I am not able to post a new one.. Thanks

    Hi guys,

    Recently I have lost my phone and I have all my contacts and confidential data in my phone.(Now I have changed all my details though ).

    I have kept lock pattern for the phone to unlock everytime. Is it possible for anyone who finds my phone can access my data? or if they intend to keep my phone.. do they have to format everything so that they can pass the lock pattern or is there any other way without formatting????

    Please reply

    Cheers
