    My dad gave me his phone last night explaining the phone is not turning on. I looked at the phone and the back and app tray button work. I called the phone and I was able to pick up. In the middle of the call I could go to the home screen but there was no notification bar or background. If you hold the power button it vibrates but nothing shows up. Any ideas on how to fix this. Also I tried a force restart and clearing partition which didn't work

    You might need to do a reset. Sounds like something corrupted the UI for whatever reason. Since the phone is partially accessible, you may try backing it up to a PC via SmartSwitch.

    I was thinking the same thing.
    Thanks!
