    New battery changed nothing. Swapped them out several times and nothing.

    Recently travelled for work and set the alarm clock in the hotel room as I could no longer trust the phone. Forgot to leave the screen unlocked while it was plugged in over night.

    The phone has been working 100% perfect since. I have NO IDEA why it is now working. I've been updating apps as updates are available... but since removing all apps from the phone had no effect on random-ish powering off I can't say that it is/was app related.

    While I'm ecstatic about having my phone back I am frustrated about why it went wonky, why it stayed wonky for so long and why it is now working like nothing ever happened to it.

    If I ever discover the cause I will report back!

    And now I'm back to random shutdowns... 3 or more in the last 3 days.

    This is maddening again

    The same have happen to me. My phone won't even be dead and it just randomly cuts off andthis last time it cut off, i put it on the charger and cut it back on and all my pics and videos and music and notes were gone. I called T-Mobile and told them and they couldn't even tell me what to do. But, I Dont think they are actually gone because on my Clean Master, my storage space is still low. If all that deleted, then I would have so much more space. I just want my stuff bad .

    I wouldn't use the clean master app. It causes more trouble than it fixes

    My phone an AT&T galaxy note 2 at 4.4.2 is rebooting a few times a day. The phone back doesn't fit well but looks like this be a software issue. I did a factory reset a few weeks ago because of lockups. I used smart switch and backed up everything. When I restored all my calender entities were gone. I tried restoring then again and no appointments. So things are screwed up here.

    Since that time 4 wks ago my phone totally died. I believe it fried itself to death because of an improper server address setting for my Microsoft live.com acct. I wonder if all of you who had that shutting off problem, losing data, hot phone, battery draining too fast, lockups etc., had a Microsoft email acct that continually tried to access a bad server address, heated up and fried parts of your phone?

    Don't know if it's relevant but my wife's Note 2 had the same problems with battery drainage and shutting down. Man in shop said it was a duff battery so we bought a new one which didn't fix it. Then he said it was a faulty charger! We tried a different charger but still no difference. Just before the problems started I remembered that I had loaded McAfee free onto her phone so I took it off and replaced it with the free version of AVG and guess what? No more problems. Phone functions perfectly. Hope that helps.

    Hi all,
    I have had all of the same Note 2 issues, turning off several times a day, battery draining etc.
    I think I am one step closer to sorting mine, I have been trying alsorts with no joy but for the last few days I have had Wifi and Bluetooth turned off and no problems......hasn't turned itself off once!
    I know it is a small victory, but maybe someone will be able to make a connection as to why it is fine when not connected? I've since got a note 4, but I always really liked the 2, so would like to see it up and running again, and maybe help others with the same problem.

    Cheers, Dazz
