I felt obligated to post this for all those owners out there who have noticed that their SGS2 isn't resonding like it did when it was new. I was having spontaneous reboot problems, general slowness, and occassional funkiness. I call Tmo tech support and was introduced to Steve. Steve suggested that I turn my phone all the way off (hold down power button until menu appears and choose "Power Off"). Hold down the up/down volume buttons while pushing the power button until the phone vibrates; blue writing eventually appears at the top of the screen. Using the down volume button scroll down to 'wipe cache partition" then tap the home button. Wait till the yellow writing says the cache wipe is complete and "reboot system now" is highlighted in the blue writing; then, tap the home button again. The phone reboots and it's a snappy young thing again! No settings or program info is disturbed.
I just did this to my phone. Hopefully some of the bugs are gone from my phone for a while. Thank you.
I'm going to try this, thank you!
For the life of me, I can't get the writing to come up. It automatically just turns back on, lol. I hold down the volume up/ down and them push power button but no writing
Hold all 3 buttons down longer and wait for multiple vibrations. Then that blue writing will show up. Keep your fingers away from the home button - you can completely reset your phone in this mode by accident.
Thanks for posting this! It's was happening to me too but after your suggestion so far, so good.
Thank you! I will try again :-)
I just bought a brand new SGS2 and I am really grateful for this information. I would have been so upset had this happened to me in the near future. This is really great information. So happy to stumble upon your post. Thank you for the great post and clearly explained information. This is wonderful. Thanks !!
