    I got a Samsung Galaxy S5 refurbished phone from AT&T when my last phone's charging port malfunctioned. I was okay with this new Galaxy S5 though, until the last few months. I can have my phone just charging overnight and when I go to type in my pin or swipe up to unlock screen, the touch screen just doesn't work and doesn't respond. I can't just power off and restart because you have to hold down the power until the screen gets a box with options that you have to touch in order to get it to power down. So, I have to take out the battery, which I HATE doing to the phone.

    But even when I put the battery back in, 9 times out of 10 (not even exaggerating) when I turn phone back on, the screen is still not responding.

    I've only got about 5 apps that weren't already on phone by Samsung/AT&T...

    I've searched for help online, I've called Samsung support at 1-800-726-7864 and i've gone on an AT&T help chat room thing where I could talk to representative... but they couldn't help me either.

    Please, I'm getting very desperate, this morning I've been trying to get it to respond since 7am!

    It sounds like faulty hardware. You will probably need to see about having it repaired. Did AT&T provide you with any kind of warranty?

    I don't remember for sure... i think it probably fell under the other phone's warranty.. otherwise we probably got more? I'm not sure.. sadly >_<

    How long have u had the phone? Did u get it through AT&T insurance? If so sometimes they have like a 30 day period when u can return the phone of no charge and get another replacement.
