    Default Galaxy SII wifi freeze and phone switching off

    Hi everyone,

    New to the forums. Glad I've found a dedicated Galaxy S2 one at that!

    I've tried searching the forums for the problems I am experience but have only found one similar with regard to the Wifi problems on ICS 4.0.3 on Galaxy S2.

    This is my problem: When I use Wifi I will switch flight mode on to stop my data connection (i'm too scared something will eat my mobile data). I then enable wifi and the symbol changes to a pale (not bright) green and the phone will then freeze. I try to disable wifi and I can hear the click sound of tapping the button but the phone is frozen stuck. The screen then turns black and the phone switches off.

    Pressing the power button won't turn it back on by itself, I have to hold volume up and power and the phone then switches on. If I hadn't ready something about boot menu (holding power home volume etc) I'm not sure I would be able to get it back on.

    I am a total android noob as this is my first android phone. If anyone can help with this I would be very grateful.

    Thanks,

    Mike
