Iphone randomly shutting off

Recently I started to experience a problem while using my phone. While over 50% battery I would notice that the phone had shut down and I had to power it again. This isn't a temperature issue since I'm in tropical weather 75-95 F normaly.

 

I took it to sprint and they couldn't diagnose the problem so I left with my phone. I restored with itunes and still had the same issue. I called Apple and told them about it and since ill be traveling to Miami on the 22nd ill stop by the apple store.

 

Heres the kicker, i have an otterbox case on my phone and dropped it from my lap at the library. When i picked it up the phone had shut down. Note that it fell 4 ft with the case onto carpet floor. A meaningless drop.

 

Hopefully i can get a replacement on my trip next week since there are no apple stores in Puerto Rico.

Would it only shut down and not reboot?

 

My phone has randomly resettled itself a few times. Maybe once every month and a half but no big deal.

 

I usually reset it once a day to start with fresh memory every morning like Florida's Orange juice. :-)

It shuts down and wont reboot on its own. I need to hold the power button to bring it back to life.

Should be a clear warranty replacement issue.

 

 

For the record, I never manually manage apps or reboot my iOS devices. It shouldn't be necessary and generally isn't. When I originally came from Windows Mobile I had to get used to not baby-sitting my phone.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
