that worked thanks. Any idea why this happens. The phone is constantly restarting its self for no apparent reason this time it stayed off. Thank you again for your help.

It looks to be a memory fault Jon.

The problem you had can happen at times with this phone, but not the restarting. This restarting indicates the memory problem.

I urge you to have it replaced under warranty, before this runs out, as its the internal memory that has faulting, and there will come a time when the trick I gave you will not work to get it on again.

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
