Well my phone can turn off now. I think it has dried out a bit. Didn't get to try the rice bag thing though. but i still get the notice that the usb is plugged or unplugged and it still won' tether to the computer. I have noticed that all the symptoms start happening when i use the phone in cold whether so it probably is a mioture condensation thing. Ultimately the amount this is happening would indicate that it is a faulty phone. What can we do about this?
now the off button won't work again. I am finding it will work for a while without being plugged in if it is fully charged but then once it goes below 80% or so it stops again and the the battery dies even faster.
Can I please have your full model number, baseband version, service provider, and the Android version on your device?
full model # is SM-A705w,baaseband A705WVLU3ASK2, service is with bell, serial number R58M62N5BZV, andriod version 9.
Today my phone buttons were working in the morning. i put it in my pocket at 75%charge with the phone off/asleep. Half hour later notice it heating up. It had turned itself on and it was down to 13%. the buttons off/ sleep button not working again.

I've got the EXACT SAME problem. It is so frustrating. The battery lasts for about half a day because the screen is always on...if I didn't spend so much money buying it I would've just replaced it...but its only been a few months since I bought the phone.
