phone is back on but how do i know it wont just turn itself off which has been the problem the phone turning off when it likes.have you cured this

We are ruling out the firmware as the issue.

We now know that if it turns off again, the mainboard in the phone is faulting and will require the phone to be replaced, being a hardware problem.

What we have done is ruled out software as the cause, so if this happens again, you know you will need to return the phone to have it replaced sorry.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
