    Galaxy S2 shuts down by itself.

    I've had the Galaxy S2 for Four months now with At&t. I am currently on my fourth phone. The phone powers off, and won't turn on again unless I pull the battery out and put it back in. This requires taking off the rubber case, the hard case, the phone back, and then reversing the process. I don't always have the time or the hands free to do that. I have had three refurbished phones and they all do the same thing. We replaced the battery, and that accomplished nothing. Anyone else familliar with this problem, or know how to fix it. Tech support offers no support at all. They are clueless, and frequently give bogus information.

    What version of the GS2 do you have with AT&T? There is the I777 (original S2) and the I727 Skyrocket (with LTE support).

    I've had the same annoying thing happen on my Galaxy SII for the few weeks. I read up on some other forums where one person said that there was some play in the battery compartment, so he put a piece of paper at the bottom of the battery to make sure that it stayed, and didn't move. I tried it, and it worked for almost a week, until last night it shut down again . I will see how long it lasts, but you may want to try that for starters.
