Phone won't unlock after typing password.

My phone won't unlock after I type the password (or input a pattern). It just doesn't respond at all.

But if I reboot it it will take the password, at least once. Then I need to reboot again…


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Just trying to eliminate possibilities.

Try starting the phone in safe mode (should be the same method for your phone) just to check if you can consistently unlock the phone or not.

if you can then a downloaded app is the cause of the problem. The trick is to find out which one.


Got the exact same problem.

Factory reset as a last resort if you cant find the app to zap.
