Phone is unresponsive or freezing ¶
"Your phone is on but is working slowly, unresponsive, or constantly freezing."
Circuitry simply failed ¶

Harmful Applications ¶

Phone will not charge ¶
"Your phone refuses to charge even though it is plugged in."
Charger not plugged in all the way ¶
Check and make sure the phone charger is completely plugged into both the phone and the outlet. Sometimes the phone will not charge properly unless it is fully plugged into the outlet. In very rare cases, not having the charger plugged in completely could cause the phone to short circuit.
Outlet does not have power ¶
If your phone charger is connected to a power strip, check that the power strip is connected to an outlet or some sort of power source. Whether it is plugged into an outlet or power strip, there may be a switch that needs to be turned on.
Faulty/broken charger ¶
If you have determined that the previous issues are not your problem, then it could be the phone charge itself. If that is the case, the charger may have frayed wires or be broken. Buy a new charger for the phone.
Dead battery ¶
If you have found that your phone refuses to turn on even though you have charged the battery, your battery could be completely dead. In that case, it needs to be replaced.
