    My phone started doing weird things a few weeks ago. It wouldn't hold a charge for more than 5 hours. On Sunday while I was charging it the charge reached 50% and then froze.
    I have tried leaving the battery out for a few hours and then tried again to charge it. When I insert the battery the start screen comes on and that's where it stays.
    I had upgraded the software prior to these problems. When I checked to see whether there were other updates I received a pop up message that said the latest upgrade was installed.
    Any advice on how to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated.
    I am based in South Africa and use the Vodacom Service provider.

    Hi, it could be down to the fact your phone is rather old. Have you considered replacing the battery or performing a factory reset on the device? Bare in mind a reset will wipe the phone so make sure you back your data up.

    I replaced the battery a few months ago. Cannot get into anything on the phone so how would I go about doing a factory reset? I don't want to lose anything on the phone, so again with it frozen how would I perform a back up?
    This phone has never given me any problems before this. I update the software as and when needed.
